This is a strange one. Do you literally mean you are somehow given actual 'parsing errors', or are you just suggesting that the browser downloading the file would be a parsing error?

I've had this occassionally happen on Firefox, but I'm pretty certain that is due to a browser bug. Are you using Firefox?

It sounds to me that GoDaddy has some problems with running non-simple PHP scripts. Have you tried downloading the file when it asks and seeing what's in it? It might be that you see some kind of error message in there.

firefox and ie, it's and empty index.php (usually). but parsing is done by php engine on the server right?

I just built a LAMP/LTS via Ubuntu, I will test from there.

I'm also trying to find the mysql/php versions at godaddy, I'll post those also. however, it will be later this afternoon.

I will install desktop to lamp server and attemp to do the wizards from there.

What is the normal or ideal desktop/browser & server to run 3.0 on?


Thanks for the reply, please delete the test post, didn't realize the board was moderated.  

Happy 4th.

Parsing is indeed done on the server.

I suspect this is actually due to GoDaddy's servers behaving incorrectly on the more intensive ocPortal pages. This wouldn't suprise me, as they compete on domain names and packages, rather than web hosting alone (and hence are less motivated to provide good servers). I could be totally wrong about that though, I have no wish to judge a service having never used it myself ;).

ocPortal should be fine on IE or the latest versions of Opera, Firefox, Konqueror or Safari.
We have a tutorial on setting up a Windows PHP environment for ocPortal.

The permission thing turned out to be a bug:
Entry: Page-level permission overriding broken - ocPortal.com

Happy 4th to you too. I believe it's the anniversary of when you got independence from English people (ocProducts is an English company ;)).
