Drupal Installation

Recommended Posts

Ok, so I got the server test to run ok , but when I attempt to install Drupal I am not able to get past the ‘database configuration’ page where I enter the database name, username, and password. I know I put everything in the correct folders, I created the settings.php file, and created a database with phpmyadmin. Why then is drupal not installing?

I assume you were following the instructions on this page

 

Perhaps it’s worth trying the pre-configured Drupal plugin

 

You did not state the version of Drupal you are trying to install the above plugin uses Drupal 6.14

 

All the bst

I installed Drupal using WAMP Server before and attempted to use the same procedures wit Uniserver. After finding that although the drupal installation process would start the Drupal install would not continue past the database configuration page, I went back and read all the documents and found no difference in the instructions to how I performed the installation procedures.

 

I was trying to install 6.14

The server seems to work ok; if I type http://localhost/ I get the Uniserver welcome page, however, the Drupal add-on does not seem to work. I followed the Drupal add-on instructions and when typing http://localhost/drupal I get an error “the website cannot display the page” what am I doing wronge?

Of course, if you changed the MySQL password, this must be reflected in your DB params for Drupal. That even applies to the Drupal plugin.

 

But there's another thing to check: Since you're using Vista, does your localhost come back with an IPv6 address? See the Wiki for more info on this topic.

I've recently installed 6.19 and had a bit of trouble getting past the database connectivity setup screen. I've found that I have to manually edit the line in settings.php as Drupal wasn't able to write to it for some reason:

 

$db_url = 'mysqli://root:xxxxx@localhost/drupal';

 

Password to be the same as UniServer's "MySQL Server Configuration".

 

See instruction at V55_Drupal_6_15__Release_Notes.html.

 

Don't forget to try restarting UniServer after making some key changes (i.e. password, subdomain, etc.)
