What error are you getting? That might help.


#3

dbhost: db.xxx.com <<< dbhostnameyoupick.yourdomain.com

dbuname: xyz <<< username you chose

dbpass: abc <<< password you chose

dbname: xyz << database name (not nesc same as username you chose)

$prefix: xyz <<< default should be nuke, unless you changed it

$user_prefix: <<< default should be nuke, unless you changed it

$dbtype: mysql4 <<< change to mySQL

$sitekey: << need a random long password here

$gfx_chk: 3

$admin_file: admin

$advanced_editor: 1

make sure the database is created and ready before you run the install.

Thanx artgeek for this, I had a problem setting it up, as I had “nuke_” as my table and user prefixes instead of “nuke”.

It confused me no end, as all I got when accessing anything was a blank page, and viewing the source showed a section, but no !

Cheers

Scott :smiley:
