  1. My issue for example is that I have <VirtualHost *:80> ServerName tc.com DocumentRoot C:/UniServer/www/tc.com/ </VirtualHost> but it ignores the tc.com and doing tc.com goes into www. If I have www/sitea www/siteb then the home pages are resolved to www for both sites so the home pages break. I am talking about joomla installs here but see the virtual host has the same issue. What is causing this ? thanks
  2. I use Uniform Server to test and develop joomla sites. localhost/sitea localhost/siteb/ etc within the joomla config though the host is given as just localhost for all the sites. if i set the host as lcoalhost/sitea then the database connection dies... this is what I could use some help to understand...so in a way I guess joomla is using the host value to connect to the db - but when i created the db it was created using phpmyadmin kind of out of the box... where do i make the changes...the site works apart from images specified like /images/test.jpeg as this should be here /sitea/images/test.jpg so I want the root of each site to be the sites root not localhost root... I hope this helps explain better
  3. bump..anyone - or at least let me know if uniserver worked out of the box for you and the link to mysql as well ? I don't want to have to hack the password. bump..anyone - or at least let me know if uniserver worked out of the box for you and the link to mysql as well ? I don't want to have to hack the password.
  4. Thanks for your advice, I tried that and it worked to find only occurances in the trash and other uniserver folders. please see image I am so desperate to work out what isnt working, I feel I need to try another server but I like this one, well when it worked. What if I copy over the mysql folders ?
  5. Well I fixed it using the steps above to know which password to modify. What I dont understand now is why it doesn't work out of the box, suggests that there is some mysql password that is saved outside of uniserver from some other prior installation. If anyone knows how I can check for this, but I thought that this would not be the case and that mysql is encapsulated in the package. Or could there be registry issues on passwords. For the issue of not being able to create a database (also I cant see the default databases !) I am still lost with google not able to help. so any ideas appreciated. I am again trying a new instal (but already did in my now mounting discovery of what is the issue.) ok from a new instal exactly the same issue, the defaults passwords are alll root:root but mysql seems to be set up from elsewhere with root and no password so where is this getting set outside of my UniServer folder ? This is the issue I seem to be facing and perhaps the reason why even if I edit the default password then its why I cannot create a database.
  6. Clean Install. when running phpMyAdmin I cannot create a database using the UI nor SQL etc. It does give me a green message that it was created, but there is none. Is there some file perms I can check etc ? Really cant find anything on google. Thanks - I have taken a few hours just to get this far since upgrading.
  7. After a couple of hours I found the files I needed to change, the config file uses php to look inside a text file a folder above. I was getting then an error which was that I needed to set the flag to allow no password to work. But I am seeing that I cannot now create a db in phpmyadmin. It gives me a green status message but no db is actually created. Will open a new thread for this. But for me the original issue is solved after a couple of hours however.
  8. All the password files I can find look to be root: which is correct why does phpmyadmin think I am using a password ?
  9. Ok so I just 'installed' the latest version and I find that clicking the link to phpmyadmin does nothing. I then went and looked around a bit not really knowing what im doing. And I find that the etc/phpmyadmin is empty what do i need to copy here if anything ? my old install has files in here but i would think im not doing this right... any help greatly appreciated thanks edit:ok i found that i cannot access due to issue by browsing http://localhost/apanel/phpMyAdmin/ #1045 - Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
  10. I get a window and the purple screen with the logo and a beep, and a brief cmd window then a blank browser with no source...? I tried downloading the latest version and same thing so its my system, but where to start ?? thanks for help im lost without it... also i dont ever get any 404 even if the localhost address doesnt exist in firefox I do get 404 with ie quiting skype fixes issue !

    cake php install

    I was interested in trying out cake php framework. I cant get the basic install to work due to .htaccess files Here is the thread over at their end http://groups.google.com/group/cake-php/br...7f7bf72d1121a68 but I tried to edit the file and it doesnt work. Still FORBIDDEN error. I'm running vista. here is my .htaccess file <Directory "/www/"> # Possible values for the Options directive are "None", "All", # or any combination of: # Indexes Includes FollowSymLinks SymLinksifOwnerMatch ExecCGI MultiViews # # Note that "MultiViews" must be named *explicitly* --- "Options All" # doesn't give it to you. # # The Options directive is both complicated and important. Please see # http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/mod/core.html#options # for more information. Options Indexes Includes FollowSymLinks # AllowOverride controls what directives may be placed in .htaccess files. # It can be "All", "None", or any combination of the keywords: # Options FileInfo AuthConfig Limit AllowOverride All Options FollowSymLinks # Controls who can get stuff from this server. Order allow,deny Allow from all </Directory> thanks for any help, as usual im halted before I get any work done frustrating for non php pros, who have to get everything right before one gets started.
  12. I have come across a problem which is a bit random and shows up onlt in mozilla running maybe in strict mode. http://devedge-temp.mozilla.org/viewsource...ect-mime-types/ I am getting the error in my mozzila error console which tells me the correct MIME type isnt set for css. I will try and find this on the server and set it up, meanwhile if you think im wrong or can help me then please reply. thanks I have just discovered that the line is set text/css css this is in the server usr/local/apache2/conf so why is this happening and why random. Well looks like not a uniform server issue. I might add this errror has been turning up while playing with mod rewrite in my site .htaccess so there mystery to solve in web development. Im sure if theyd been around shirlock would have been a web developer its far more challenging than any criminal mind. http://www.landed.at a travel forum
  13. Thanks, maybe this will go away in the next release ? I guess in the sense that I couldnt get to the admin panel or phpmyadmin, was why it wasnt working. I have left Globals on for now, but will try commenting that line out as suggested. Doing that now actually to save me finding this post later so far commenting that line out works.. thanks
  14. switching register globals to Off restarting the server stops uniform server working properly with the error Warning: gethostbyaddr() [function.gethostbyaddr]: Address is not in a.b.c.d form in W:\home\admin\www\includes\config.inc.php on line 18 it didnt seem to do it before when i changed it. I ideally want to mirror my server config, and this has it set to Off thanks
  15. Id like to know if its possible to change the www browsable localhost directory path to something closer to the root, im going to organise my work inside the www directory so i dont have to copy across for testing the scripts etc I will have photoshop work and flash work etc and i would like that in the www folder to keep things in one place. I want to move it on my hard disk for backing up as I want to store graphics and other related work files in a drive closer to c:/ that is cleaner and will save a lot of uneccessary clicks. Thanks mojito

    where is that line of code in install.php of smf folder, nothing via a search in install.php Pls help, i want to use uniform server.
  17. I regularly get a dos window appear then dissaper as my localhost test site are working away being served. Im using version 3.3 I'm running specificly joomla cms. Does this happen to anyone else. I am sorry to see that I can no longer run the uniform server as a service and have to start the thing every time i reboot. Am I missing something?? thanks mojito
  18. the implode function seems to be somethng you have added to phpmyadmin, or it isnt in the latest release. I have never got it to work and have always had to edit out this implode function. I will have alook at your latest release to see the phpmyadmin file. thanks I got the new beta working (it doesnt have implode function) i just had to enter root into the config file now called config.default.php should I use implode? By the way I still dont get email notification for replies to this board. Is it me or is the general reliability of email crap these days. mojito
  19. I have tried 2 solutions given on this forum editing config-inc.php for the config of phpmyadmin editing mysql_password so its empty(I normally dont install with a password- but root was originally in this file now set to nothing.) I think it would be quicker to reinstall the server than do the steps of going into SSH for mysql routine for resetting master password. And I dont think I forgot the password. is there something im missing. The login for phpmadmin is the same as fr the daabase no? thanks mojito
  20. i got an email this time! yes i thought it might be interesting, might some daredevil people try it ??? thanks for your support, i can continue using your software thanks mojito
  21. I do that alot! I got rid of the php install- ran the run.bat to instal as service- now it is better than having to run it each time. It copied my www directory though and the instal ran on a bit but ot seemed ok. still had the crashes! I have put it down to browser issue as it only happens when i use firefox! I didnt realise this earlier so im happy on the one hand but i prefer tabbed browsing. dont have mozzila to try. Its interesting though. thanks for your help-btw im not getting email notification of your replies. Can I safely delete my old file copy currently UniServer3_2a -I have the copy of www and data for mySQL. mojito
  22. I did instal php (to replace the old version) as a separate install (at the time i had an old uniform install as service) because that was what i needed to upgrade. Then I saw it was a different way to which it was installed under Uniform server. I think I need to uninstal everything, i mean the c:/php folder is gone, i did an uninstal when i realised that was running alongside my new install of 3_2a. Its just not right somewhere. What files need to be gotten rid of, are there and registry items I could cleanout. Maybe I should try that first. thanks mojito
  23. Thanks to you both firstly- YES to answer your question. Also wanted mysql to run on boot as a service. The problem was that iis was running. It finally installed ok. But I found an exe which just extracted not installed! So just used as was and it seemd to work. Im now getting mighty power cut style crashes! see my other post here http://forum.uniformserver.com/index.php?showtopic=214 dont know what to do now. I'm really scared to loose disk info if this happens much more. mojito
  24. When developing my local community website www.mycambs.com on localhost since upgrading The system occasionally crashes at the point of clicking a link in the localhost portal admin area. The upgrade gave me the following versions: mySQL 4.1.12a php 5.0.4 It crashes in the most spectacular way and never wants to run scan disk on reboot. Is there any way I check all is well. the apache log file is as such [Tue Oct 11 12:46:09 2005] [error] [client] File does not exist: W:/www/favicon.ico [Tue Oct 11 12:46:09 2005] [error] [client] File does not exist: W:/www/favicon.ico [Tue Oct 11 12:46:07 2005] [error] [client] File does not exist: W:/www/favicon.ico [Tue Oct 11 12:46:07 2005] [error] [client] File does not exist: W:/www/favicon.ico [Tue Oct 11 12:46:00 2005] [error] [client] File does not exist: W:/www/favicon.ico [Tue Oct 11 12:46:00 2005] [error] [client] File does not exist: W:/www/favicon.ico [Tue Oct 11 12:45:57 2005] [error] [client] File does not exist: W:/www/favicon.ico [Tue Oct 11 12:45:57 2005] [error] [client] File does not exist: W:/www/favicon.ico [Tue Oct 11 12:45:57 2005] [error] [client] File does not exist: W:/www/a [Tue Oct 11 12:44:45 2005] [error] [client] File does not exist: W:/www/favicon.ico [Tue Oct 11 12:44:44 2005] [error] [client] File does not exist: W:/www/favicon.ico [Tue Oct 11 12:44:41 2005] [error] [client] File does not exist: W:/www/favicon.ico [Tue Oct 11 12:43:24 2005] [error] [client] File does not exist: W:/www/favicon.ico [Tue Oct 11 12:43:15 2005] [error] [client] File does not exist: W:/www/favicon.ico [Tue Oct 11 12:43:15 2005] [error] [client] File does not exist: W:/www/favicon.ico [Tue Oct 11 12:43:11 2005] [error] [client] File does not exist: W:/www/favicon.ico [Tue Oct 11 12:43:11 2005] [error] [client] File does not exist: W:/www/favicon.ico [Tue Oct 11 12:43:08 2005] [error] [client] File does not exist: W:/www/favicon.ico [Tue Oct 11 12:43:08 2005] [error] [client] File does not exist: W:/www/favicon.ico [Tue Oct 11 12:43:07 2005] [error] [client] File does not exist: W:/www/favicon.ico It is also a pain to have to start mysql each time i want to do get the localhost. I am thinking I need to uninstal and try a more newbie friendly system. I do like this lightweight style no bloatware approach. What can I do to work out the error. Another clue is that windows is never able to compile an error report. And it says it has recovered from a serious issue. thanks for any clues. mojito
  25. Tried disabling virus software-no difference. have installed skype but it isnt runing(does this matter). I'm a bit confused as to install as it tells me i dont need to. I have some error in cmd window which is about appache but it closes too quick to see the problem, but then redirects to admin screen however none of the links work 404 errors. logs directory does exist in appache. trying to run the appache.exe doesnt seem to do anything.. I want to use this system as its light weight. I heard there was a .exe install. cant find it f it exists. Where is your homepage guys??? please can we get a sticky post on proper instal technique. I'm doing the following- from doc/services folder im running (via windows run) the run.bat and then it seems to do all but the appache. i did have an old version how can i remove any old components??? this is the problem i feel. thanks for posting replies goodbye calvincrane@hotmail.com
