Problems installing on Vista
28 May 2010, 5:45 AM
I am having trouble installing mahara on my laptop (Windows Vista Home). I have followed the installation instructions but when I go to phpmyAdmin and click on mahara in 'Your projects' I get the following error message:
- log_message("Not installed! Please create config.php from confi...", 1, true, true) at C:\wamp\www\mahara\lib\errors.php:123
- log_environ("Not installed! Please create config.php from confi...") at C:\wamp\www\mahara\init.php:53
- require("C:\wamp\www\mahara\init.php") at C:\wamp\www\mahara\index.php:32
Could anyone advise as to what to do?

Copy the config-dist.php file. rename the file to config.php.
set the config.php
$cfg->dbtype = 'mysql5';
$cfg->dbhost = 'localhost';
$cfg->dbport = null;
$cfg->dbname = 'mahara';
$cfg->dbuser = 'root';
$cfg->dbpass = '';
$cfg->httpswwwroot = 'https://localhost/mahara/htdocs';
$cfg->dataroot = 'c:\\xampp\\htdocs\\data';
hope your problem might be solved.
