having problems

This is what im have problems with. And it will not go passed this step. When I do put the master password in it

Could i get any example to help me with this. Thank you

what im having problems with is:

FTP

FTP hostname
FTP username
FTP password
FTP directory
This should be the FTP path on the server of the directory from which this installer is running. Common examples: / , /httpdocs/ , /(installdir)/ , /httpdocs/(installdir)/ , /subdomains/(subdomain)/httpdocs/ , /subdomains/(subdomain)/(installdir)/ , or /httpdocs/subdomains/(subdomain)/(installdir)/ . Sometimes 'public_html' or 'htdocs' is used instead of 'httpdocs'.
Number of files per cycle
The number of files to FTP to the server per upload cycle. The default of 1000 is fine for most servers, but others may malfunction (such as passing a blank file to the browser for download, or giving timeout errors, or showing just a blank screen) if it is too high.

General settings

Domain
You may wish to remove www.
For example, example.com
Base URL
The URL to the base of your installation. If you have multiple domain name variations (e.g. with and without www ) then enter the one you wish to use. The base URL must start http:// .
For example, http://example.com/portal
Table prefix
The prefix your tables will be given. This allows you to have multiple ocPortal installations in a single database.
For example, ocp3_
Master password
Choose the master password (this is used for configuration file maintenance: it is not attached to any username)
Master password
Confirm password
Use persistent database connections
This option may reduce the time your script takes to start, but may also tie up server resources. Check with your server operator that you may use this.
Send error e-mails to ocProducts
If this option is enabled, stack dumps and error messages will be e-mailed to ocProducts (the makers of the technology behind this website), to assist in fixing bugs promptly and with minimum hassle. If you are concerned about privacy for your website, disable this option.


Member/forum settings

Administration account username
The username with which the first user account will be created. (i.e. your username).
Administration account password
Choose a password for the above account.
Administration account password
Confirm password

ocPortal settings

Database name
Database hostname
Usually localhost
Database username
Database password

You'll need to give some more specifics. For example, do you see an error, or does the button just not click, or do you see a white screen, or does it redirect back somehow, …?

  • 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.

step 1

There is no PHP ZIP extension on the server. Batch importing from zip files (this is not a common activity) will not work until zip support is enabled/configured (either via the extension, or via configuring ocPortal to use the InfoZip alternative).

step 3

trying the mysql 4.0+ (traditional driver) - what driver do I use?

step 4

error message from webpage

could not connect to database server MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock' (2) mysql_connect(): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock'(2))

and master password is invaild or store in a safe place

how do u fix this? I been trying for 3 days now

It is probably that the web host has the database server on a different machine to the web server, so you'll probably need to put in a different database host name. They should be able to supply that.
