Hi !

I'm trying to install the latest version of limesurvey. I've downloaded the archive, "unzipped" it in a folder on my pc then uploaded it (in binary), to the webserver.

I'm able to start the install, enter the database information, create the admin acount, but then I get redirected to : ***/index.php/installer/optional which is a 404.

If I go directly to ***/admin I get redirected to ***/index.php/admin/authentication/sa/login which returns a 404 too.

I'm able to access the index.php and see that there is no survey created.

The database as some tables created after the install so I know the user has the rights.

Let me know if you need more info !

Maybe some problem with the url manager.

Maybe your server is apache but don't allow index.php/something url.

Just before optional, update the application/config/config.php file and put 'urlFormat' => 'get'

update application/controllers/InstallCommand.php line 996 and put $sURLFormat='get';

If second soleution is OK : please get all information from your server and report a bug.
