The installation manual is based on version 1.92 I think and LS 2.00 is totally different in its structure, so the solutions desribed in the installation manual probably is not working for the newest version.

I just installed LS 2.0 on my XAMPP yesterday night and everything went fine. Did you create the database correctly, is all the information correct? (PW, database name, user, etc.)

Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

Did you try to create the database before with a tool like PHPmyAdmin and then insert the information like database name, user and password?

I am using LS 2.0 for test purposes on a Windows Notebook with XAMPP installed and installation worked like a charm.

Holch,

Yes, I created the database before, let LS create the database, and tried a million other combinations in the path name.

I finally gave up, removed 2.0, and installed 1.92. It worked just great! The config.php and config-default.php files just did not work for me in 2.0 . . . don't know why, but I hope 1.92 will go smoothly.

Our manual is a wiki. Simply click the "edit" link/icon and add some additional notes.

You can't do much wrong, there are backups of every revision.

Thanks for your feedback!

I just tried to add a page to the wiki, both a new one and as a child under Installation and it said I do not have permission. I was logged in as myself. Is there a special secret?
