Hi Christian,

What version of Mahara are you using, have you set $cfg->langpacksearchpaths, and if you have, what is it set to?

Hi Nigel,

 i´m using Mahara 1.0.8 with german language pack.

$cfg->langpacksearchpaths = '/www/htdocs/w00aaf83/mahara/lang/de.utf8';

Hallo Christian,

what happens if you remove the  var for the langpack in the config file? I would try to complete installation first and then add the langpack. In 1.0.8 there is no need to add the var. Just copy the langpack into the right dirs and change the setting in the admin area. Which german langpack do you use? 

Greetings from the black forest

Heinz

I also tried to install without language pack and var. Same result.

Hi Christian, try commenting out the langpacksearchpaths setting in your config.php, drop your database, create it again and try the install - does that fix the issue? If not, do you get the same backtrace?

Okay, i´ve created a new database, delete all files, download the mahara 1.0.8 package again, create a new config and upload all files without any language pack.

Result: Just the same errors.

Hi Christian,

what's about the config file? please copy the file here or via email.

I notice that you copied the mahara files in a dir name

/www/htdocs/w00aaf83/mahara
How did you name the maharadata dir? Did mahara create the dir within the datafolder?
What happens if you try to setup the config without renaming $cfg->dbprefix = ''; ?
 
cheers 
Heinz
