Does not install or work

Postby OldManRiver » 6:48am, Thu 19 Jan, 2012

All,

I ran across this app so did a quick download and install, and followed the installation, but always get a DB connect error from the code even with the config.php file set correctly.

Something is missing here, please inform.

Looking in the code there is never an "include" or "require" statement to read the config.php file, so sure it is something to do with that.

Cheers!

Can you post the actual error message that is being displayed?

Not sure what code you are looking at but the config file is included in admin/index.php starting at line 36. So long as you have taken the default directory structure then it should be found, and if it isn't found then you would get a different error message.

All,

Got this running, was major error is how GMail is handled by the SMTP which requires these lines:

# when the protocol is SMTP/GMail, specify these three:
$bounce_mailbox_host = 'imap.gmail.com';
$bounce_mailbox_user = 'user@gmail.com';
$bounce_mailbox_password = 'userPWD';

But still get the following errors:

********************************************************************************************************
Warning: The attachment repository does not exist or is not writable

In the user detail page getting error:

Database error 1146 while doing query Table 'phplistdb.phplist_listattr_nxt_week' doesn't exist

********************************************************************************************************

Would like help finding/fixing these errors!

Thanks!

Please open a new topic for each different problem. as these are not related to your original problem of 10 months ago.
