downloaded version: limesurvey192plus-build120425

Can't get it installed through browser sits and building tables and does nothing.

So I run #php cmd_install.php install

It builds tables in database.

I have debug 1; turned on.

Remove install directory.

Go to admin login enter admin id and password nothing happens

CentOS release 4.9 (Final)
PHP 5.2.17
mysql 4.1.22-standard


any ideas

Nothing in the combined apache logs.

1. Can you check at the DB if all tables were created properly and if a user exists at the user table?

2. Though MySQL 4.1 should be supported by Limesurvey, could you try installing on MySQL 5.x?

Tables are installed and admin user is in the table. I created a different name for the adminuser other than admin, and I see it in the lime_users table that it exists. Here is my tables I will give upgrading a shot.

Shouldn't debug 1; put some type of output in the apache logs or is it somewhere else?

Setting $debug to 2 should result in errors showing up on top of the screen.

Really hard to debug this one. I have also never heard of this issue, but it seems not many users are using CentOS.
Are there no errors at Apache's error log or the MySQL error log?

If you fail to set this up, maybe www.LimeService is an alternative.

There must be more troubleshooting than that I am not ready to throw in the towel, and pay for a service when the application should spit out something in the logs somewhere?

120427 22:33:43 20 Connect host4_dbuser@localhost on
20 Init DB host4_limesurvey
20 Query SHOW TABLES
20 Query select version()
20 Query SET CHARACTER SET 'utf8'
20 Query SET NAMES 'utf8'
20 Query SELECT * FROM `lime_settings_global`
20 Query SELECT * FROM `lime_failed_login_attempts` WHERE ip='xx.xxx.xxx.xx'
20 Quit


Every login attempt hits the database but this is all that it shows.

When I go to initialize the database from the Web interface. I get this

120427 22:58:53 155 Connect host4_dbuser@localhost on
155 Init DB host4_limesurvey
155 Query SHOW TABLES
155 Query select version()
155 Query SET CHARACTER SET 'utf8'
155 Query SET NAMES 'utf8'
155 Query SELECT * FROM `lime_settings_global`
155 Query SELECT stg_value FROM `lime_settings_global` where stg_name='force_ssl' LIMIT 1
155 Query SELECT stg_value FROM `lime_settings_global` where stg_name='showxquestions' LIMIT 1
155 Query SELECT stg_value FROM `lime_settings_global` where stg_name='showgroupinfo' LIMIT 1
155 Query SELECT stg_value FROM `lime_settings_global` where stg_name='showqnumcode' LIMIT 1
155 Quit


So it looks like it starts to do something then halts?

Hard to say where it fails, at least the connection to the DB should work fine.

Please re-upload all files in binary mode. Maybe some files were broken during upload.
