I was wondering if anyone could help me pin-point what might be causing the problem I am having when trying to install certain PHP programs. In particular, Expression Engine ( http://www.pmachine.com/expressionengine/ ). It should have a very straight-forward install, but the very first step of the process goes wrong.
I am supposed to input the name I have given EE’s ‘system’ directory, and when I do this, I get the error message that it can’t locate the submitted directory. Naturally, I have made sure it is actually there and named what it should be. Also, in the input box, it echoes back what I put in there, adding ‘system_dir=’ so that it says ‘system_dir=’.
I have even had one of the support people for EE trying to install it, with no luck, and another script she tried to install also failed, and the error messages seemed to show similar ‘echoing’ back of the input, for example:
Warning: select_lang_config(./lang/english.inc.phplang_config=english.inc.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/sites/westeros.org/www/html/Scripts/e/include/functions.inc.php on line 76
I am very new to php (I pretty much only know how to follow the directions in a script to install it, provided all goes well), so I have no clue what the problem might be. And so far, neither does my host. She has PHP programs installed on other accounts on the server (for example, PHP-Nuke), so we’re both at a loss for why it wouldn’t work on our account. But given that more than one script is failing, it seems to be an error with PHP on the server rather than with the scripts.
If anyone has any ideas where to look for the problem, I’d be very grateful.
