I'm trying to install CiviCRM on Joomla and am running into some problems. The most recent thread in this forum on this topic is from 3 years ago.
I did the "private PHP" install Dreamhost tech support suggested so I have access to ZIP functionality within PHP scripts.
I also modified the max file upload size to 20MB (to accommodate the 10.3 MB CiviCRM package size).
Yet problems remain:
a) I'm unable to install from the "upload package file" option. After a brief delay I'm dumped back to the main admin home, no error, no install.
b) I unzip the file on my PC, FTP it to a folder on my dreamhost account and use Install From Directory option. That gives me several warnings and the following error:
Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'DB.php' (include_path='.:') in /home/USERNAME/MYSITE.COM/administrator/components/com_civicrm/configure.php on line 140
c) Similarly using the Install from URL option pointing it to the CiviCRM download URL results in the same error above.
Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!
