Config Problem

Hi all,

Need a little help, I have installed the ocPortal onto my hosting server and went onto the final config (setup wizard) when all of the settings had been entered and clicked on the final button I got the web page error "HTTP 406" :$

Not had this type of error before and not sure how to sort it O_o

Any help?

Thanks,
George

Hi,

I've never seen one of these either, and from what I can see reading about 406, it's a strange error to get.

Are you using a mainstream browser (firefox, ie6/ie7, safari, or opera)? I imagine you probably are, but if not that could help understand the problem.

The most common cause of Setup Wizard problems are with the theme generation. You might want to try refreshing each time get that error up to about 4 times to see if eventually works (the theme generation can get further each time - so if the error is related to this getting held up, giving it a few goes might solve it). Alternatively you could leave the default colour, which means that the theme generation gets effectively skipped.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Browser Config

Hi,

I.E 7 is my main browser, but I have Firefox installed as well, so I used Firefox to finish the setup of the portal and it worked.

This points to a config error with I.E 7, not sure if it's the security settings of I.E 7 (advanced tab) I will have a play around with these settings and try and figure this one out… :thumbs:
