Thread: Problems while installing locally on windows/apache

    Default Problems while installing locally on windows/apache


    I downloaded OsCMax v2, and tried to install it in a local windows xp/Apache environment, I tried both to do a manual and an automatic install, in both situations I ended up with errors, in the automatic installation it refuses to connect to the db, even though I used phpmyAdmin and mysql console and did a succesful test connection, I created a user and a db and the php installation script shows 'unknown database ...', error ... if i try to it manually i receive a T_STRING error in my config line define('DIR_FS_CATALOG', 'E:\webs\www\catalog\'); I am not sure if this error is caused by the used of backslashes, but that supposed to be right, because i am in the FS, this is my first time configuring OsCMax as local and on a windows system, I did it several times on Unix servers, so I am wondering what might be causing this syntax error ...

    Here is complete code related to FS:

    define('DIR_WS_DOWNLOAD_PUBLIC', 'pub/');
    define('DIR_FS_CATALOG', 'E:\webs\www\catalog\');
    define('DIR_FS_DOWNLOAD', DIR_FS_CATALOG . 'download\');
    define('DIR_FS_DOWNLOAD_PUBLIC', DIR_FS_CATALOG . 'pub\');

    Default Fixed ...


    I fixed it myself it was a permissions problem in win xp, now is working like a charm, as simple as going to explorer, then choose tools, and then views tab, and uncheck 'simple file sharing (recommended)'
