Hi!

Perhaps someone can help me on this. I installed pixelpost photoblog software in the webapps directory. Per install instructions, I made the appropriate changes to the database fields; localhost = localhost, username = root, password = rootwdp, dbname = pixelpost.

I open my browser, and enter the url to the install.php file, but receive 404 errors, and a dialog box asking me if I want to open the file, or save it to disk.

WordPress is already auto-configured, and there are a few decent themes, but I prefer to use pixelpost. Any suggestions???

Sounds like you left a few steps out and/or put things in the wrong place. Check any of the \www\Apache22\conf\Suite-extra\webapps\*.conf files to see how URLs are aliased to dirs.

Thanks! I'll try this -- pixelpost did not come with a configuration file, nor do the install instructions make any note / reference to them. It's suppose to be an easy wordpress-type install -- just configure the database, and that's it -- the install file is supposed to create, populate the db tables, and set up the structure.

Ill try this, and inform all of results.

Hi! Again,

Tried again -- nothing! This is what's happened so far (I'm including everything I added to the directory structure).

Here's what I did:

I created the pixelpost.conf file as follows;

<IfModule !mod_rewrite.c>
   LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so
</IfModule>

AccessFileName .htaccess
<Files ~ "^\.htaccess$">
   order allow,deny
   deny from all
</Files>

Alias /pixelpost "/www/webapps/pixelpost"

<Directory "/www/webapps/wordpress">
   Options FollowSymLinks
   AllowOverride FileInfo

   order allow,deny
   allow from 127.0.0.1
#   allow from all

   AddType text/html .php
   AddHandler application/x-httpd-php .php
</Directory>

I also created a .htaccess file as follows;

# BEGIN pixelpost
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /pixelpost/
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /pixelpost/index.php [L]
</IfModule>

# END pixelpost

I installed pixelpost to C:\www\webapps\, and the following directory tree was created;

DIRECTORY
pixelpost - this folder contains index.php and the .htaccess file

SUB DIRECTORIES
addons
admin - this folder contains install.php
docs
includes - this folder contains the install.php include files ---> functions.php, and "pixelpost.php" (this is the file that contains the required database configuration I mentioned earlier)
language
templates

Below is the pixelpost.php code:

<?php

/*

1) this '<Directory "/www/webapps/wordpress">' should point to /www/webapps/pixelpost, not wordpress.

2) You need to include pixelpost.conf into a file that Apache reads, for it to have any effect... This can be conf/httpd.conf, or conf/Suite-extra/components.conf [just take a look into this file on how it's done].

Make sure to restart Apache after any configuration changes.

3) You probably already needed to create the actual database 'pixelpost'. This is easily done via the mysql shell, or phpmyadmin...

4) Hit the /pixelpost/admin/install.php URL to install.
