I've tried to install Drupal 6.9 by:
uncompressing it in a subfolder
copying the settings.default.php to settings.php
put all files and folders to chmod 777
trying to run the installation script
it works until the database section, there I set up all the info (also mysql.mydomain.com as server) and once I click on save and continue drupal just reloads this page again.
no way to install it.
I've then tried to modify directly the settings.php file, modifying the database info and the base url.
thanks to this it created all the tables on the db.
However it just stops on the following step, on the website configuration, by showing nothing in the central drupal panel.
could anyone install drupal ?
