Problem installing 3.5 as a service


Recommended Posts

I'm having an issue installing Uniform Server as a service. My website runs fine before I execute start.bat. After I finish start.bat and run install, apanel opens correctly but when I try to open my webpage I get nothing but a blank page. I used the updated w2c1.pl file to make sure I wasn't missing anything. I examined the apache error log and found the following messages:

I'm trying to make more sense of these error messages so I can solve my problem. Anyone have any ideas?

Open file C:\UniServerX.X\www\joomla\configuration.php


At the end of this file what do you have for these two lines:


var $log_path =

var $tmp_path =


All the best

Yep, you can try replacing all occurrences of W: with C:\\UniServerX.X


An alternative would be to extract a clean copy of Uniform Server apply Uc_bug_fix_6.exe run the service plugin and perform a fresh install of Joomla.


Export your original and import into the new installation.


All the best
