dolphin install thinks I'm missing..

But wait I'm kind of a geek so this should be going smooth.. Someone please help =)

Finally moving to 7 and can't get past fresh install.

Three times I've tried to install, each time with fresh download - and the install process craps out when I get to the modules tab - right after you change the inc permissions. See error below.


I check php info and all the below warnings are false.

register_globals is On

this is not true

safe_mode is On

this is not true

mbstring extension not installed

this is not true

register_globals is On (warning, you should have this param in Off state, or your site will unsafe)'; $aErrors[] = (ini_get('safe_mode') == 0) ? '' : 'safe_mode is On, disable it'; //$aErrors[] = (ini_get('allow_url_fopen') == 0) ? 'Off (warning, better keep this parameter in On to able register Dolphin' : ''; $aErrors[] = (version_compare(PHP_VERSION, '5.2.0', '<')) ? 'PHP version too old, please update to PHP 5.2.0 at least' : ''; $aErrors[] = (! extension_loaded( 'mbstring')) ? 'mbstring extension not installed. Warning! Dolphin cannot work without mbstring extension.' : ''; if (version_compare(phpversion(), "5.2", ">") == 1) { $aErrors[] = (ini_get('allow_url_include') == 0) ? '' : 'allow_url_include is On (warning, you should have this param in Off state, or your site will unsafe)'; }; $aErrors = array_diff($aErrors, array('')); //delete empty if (count($aErrors)) { $sErrors = implode(" ", $aErrors); echo << Please go to the Dolphin Troubleshooter and solve the problem. EOF; exit; } } //check correct hostname $aUrl = parse_url( $site['url'] ); if( isset($_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']) and 0 != strcasecmp($_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'], $aUrl['host']) and 0 != strcasecmp($_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'], $aUrl['host'] . ':80') ) { header( "Location:http://{$aUrl['host']}{$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']}" ); exit; } // check if install folder exists if ( !defined ('BX_SKIP_INSTALL_CHECK') && file_exists( $dir['root'] . 'install' ) ) { $ret = << Dolphin Installed Please, remove INSTALL directory from your server and reload this page to activate your community site. NOTE: Once you remove this page you can safely install modules via Admin Panel. EOJ; echo $ret; exit(); } // set error reporting level if (version_compare(phpversion(), "5.3.0", ">=") == 1) error_reporting(E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE & ~E_DEPRECATED); else error_reporting(E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE); set_magic_quotes_runtime(0); ini_set('magic_quotes_sybase', 0); // set default encoding for multibyte functions mb_internal_encoding('UTF-8'); mb_regex_encoding('UTF-8'); require_once(BX_DIRECTORY_PATH_INC . "security.inc.php"); require_once(BX_DIRECTORY_PATH_ROOT . "flash/modules/global/inc/header.inc.php"); require_once(BX_DIRECTORY_PATH_ROOT . "flash/modules/global/inc/content.inc.php"); require_once(BX_DIRECTORY_PATH_CLASSES . "BxDolService.php"); require_once(BX_DIRECTORY_PATH_CLASSES . 'BxDolAlerts.php'); $oZ = new BxDolAlerts('system', 'begin', 0); $oZ->alert(); ?>

I also moved the .htaccess content to inside my httpd.conf file - thinking this was a rewrite rule issue since I don't use .htaccess - but the same error is produced above.

Any ideas??

No error logs on var/log/websitename-error or in httpd.error

HELPPP

Thank

Yes.

The php option for short_open_tags needs to be on.

All of that garbage you are seeing is because that short_open_tag option is off. So the script is not being executed.

This is a list of the required and recommend php settings for dolphin

register_globals=Off
magic_quotes_gpc=On
allow_url_include=Off
upload_max_filesize=300M
post_max_size=300M
max_input_time=3000
max_execution_time=3000
memory_limit=128M
short_open_tag=On


Oh, and TURN SAFE MODE OFF. That should not be on.

Other dolphin requirements.

register_globals must be Off
safe_mode must be Off
exec() (executable files) must be allowed
allow_url_fopen should be On
allow_url_include should be Off
open_basedir should not have any value memory_limit should be 128M or higher

You sir are a good man! Is there  a log I could view somewhere that would have clued me on to this?

Thank you

Most likely, no.

The script is suppose to check all requirements before installation, but checking for shot_open_tags was left out. I recall it being added in the latest bug-fix release (though, this could be incorrect).

These guys have a lot to keep up with.. it's all good. Glad some of you php monkeys are hanging around to help out.


Thanks for the 411
