Installer stops at step 8
« on: November 30, 2020, 06:19:18 pm »

Hello, I am having a problem installing Coppermine 1.6 on my server.  I am running ChaletOS and Wordpress.  The installation stops at step 8 and I get the following message: "Nothing here yet, please click here to go back."  I am using the cpg_installer_stub.php.

Any ideas?  Thank you in advance.  This is not the first time installing Coppermine, but I've always done it on Windows just for testing, now I would like to make it live.

If the installer stub is failing on your server, you can try the traditional method as out lined https://coppermine-gallery.net/docs/curr/en/install.htm

It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.

The installer stub really only serves to place the files in CPG package on your server. It has no part in the actual install where configuration and database tables are created.

CPG has never been tested with ChaletOS. What version of PHP and (my)SQL are you using?

Step 8 of the install tries to build the necessary database tables. So it would seem there is a problem with your database setup. The database username that you supply must have ALL privileges assigned to it.

Thank you for your help.
I already tried to install from the package 1.5x, then I found the stub.  Nothing has worked so far.
I realized that step 8 relates to the database, I checked and it created 22 tables so I think that is not the problem.  I am running php 7.4.12 and mySQL 8.0.22.

I'm started to think that it may be related to ChaletOS.

Thanks again.

I know CPG 1.6.09 runs okay with PHP 7.4.12, so it could be an issue with mySQL 8.

Give me a day or so to setup a test environment and I'll determine what the issue is.

I created an instance of ChaletOS 16.04. I upgraded to 18.04 and then 20.04.

I installed Apache2 (2.4.41) PHP (7.4.3) and mySQL (8.0.22).
I created a database and user with all privileges granted.
I placed the installer stub in /var/www/html/cpg (owned by www-data:www-data).
I ran the installer stub and installed CPG 1.6.09 with no problem.

Sorry that my effort has not turned up a solution for you ...
