I have a website that relies on xmb for the forum, a different database for user management, and yet another for news, etc. I can use xmb for most things, but it is primarily forum software, although they do now have a portal hack. I am on the lookout for software that can 'do it all' and if ocPortal can help me manage my users, manage my website (more dynamic) and also help me import or integrate xmb forums, than my search is over!

Unable to install

I am unable to intall the ocPortal! I have tried just about every method. The auto install works up to the point where I have to re-input ftp and database settings, and then it hangs. After the install validates the ftp and goes to the next step, then I put in all of the parameters and I get an error that says that the ftp settings are incorrect. Not sure how it can confirm them on one step and then say they are invalid on the next.

Manual install has different problems. The chmod instructions tell me to chmod files that are not part of the package. What gives?

I do this kind of stuff all of the time, so I'm not sure why I am having issues and what those issues are.

Hi,

Sorry it hasn't installed smoothly.

After the install validates the ftp and goes to the next step, then I put in all of the parameters and I get an error that says that the ftp settings are incorrect. Not sure how it can confirm them on one step and then say they are invalid on the next.

I don't understand, as the installer only asks for FTP details once (the Setup Wizard, which the installer optionally links to, asks for one at the end though). It would help a lot if you could post a screenshot. That'll tell us the exact error message and where it's occurring.

We're aware of the problem in the chmod list. Please ignore any references to missing files.

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.
