Trying to set up a fresh new instance of Mahara 1.5.2 (downloaded 8/15/12). Extracted code to directory, created config.php with appropriate settings, created database owned by user with access, created data directory as usual.

Navigated to web site and got "Site unavailable", "A nonrecoverable error occurred."

Error in HTTP log:

[Wed] [WAR] be (lib/errors.php:464) An exception was thrown of class Dwoo_Compilation_Exception.
[Wed] [WAR] be (lib/errors.php:464) THIS IS BAD and should be changed to something extending MaharaException,

Data directories were created as follows:

dwoo
htmlpurifier
images
langpacks
log
sessions
smarty
temp

Database is empty - no relations. No PHP errors logged. No custom themes or anything else added to code.

Any ideas?

 

Thanks!

Hi Worth,

I've just tried this with 1.5.2, and can't reproduce this. Can you give some of the info below to try and figure it out.

What does your config.php file look like. In particular the wwwroot, dataroot, and dbtype, directorypermissions. Feel free to change the wwwroot to not have your url in it. I just want to see what format it is in (ie, protocol://domain/path/, or protocol://domain/), and whether it has a slash at the end.

Does this happen when you go to the webpage before installation, ie you can't yet install?

Cheers,

Hugh

Hi Hugh,

Config.php (less comments, blank lines, genericized):

<?php
$cfg = new StdClass;
$cfg->dbtype   = 'postgres8';
$cfg->dbhost   = 'localhost';
$cfg->dbport   = null;
$cfg->dbname   = 'dbname';
$cfg->dbuser   = 'dbuser';
$cfg->dbpass   = 'dbpassword';
$cfg->dbprefix = 'pre_';
$cfg->wwwroot = 'http://mahara.mysite.com/';  // Tried with and without this
$cfg->dataroot = '/usr/mahdat/data';
$cfg->emailcontact = '[email protected]';
$cfg->passwordsaltmain = 'longrandomstring';   // Tried with and without salt
// closing php tag intentionally omitted to prevent whitespace issues

Permissions:

drwxrwxrwx  10 visitor  wheel  512 Aug 15 15:41 /usr/mahdat/data

drwxr-xr-x  26 visitor  wheel  1024 Aug 15 15:03 htdocs

The message:

Mahara: Site unavailable
A nonrecoverable error occured. This probably means you have encountered a bug in the system

...is the first & only thing that comes up when I navigate to the URL when attempting to install.

FWIW, note that there are several other instances of Mahara 1.5x running on this server against the same PostgreSQL server (different databases) with the same dbuser and dbpassword. Also using the same URL construct, ie:  http://sub.mysite.com. Data subdirectories also in /usr/mahdat/.

Also, found this error in PostgreSQL log today:

LOG:  connection received: host=::1 port=30896

Thanks for your help!

Suspect I've found a piece of the puzzle. 

I was able to install Mahara 1.5.2 on a server running Ubuntu. The server I've been trying to install it on is running FreeBSD 8.3.  Previous versions ran without issue. Might be this one has some sort of conflict.

Should I figure it out, I'll let you know.

Thanks!

Hi Worth,

Good that you found something that could be the cause. I have created a bug for it not installing on FreeBSD. https://bugs.launchpad.net/mahara/+bug/1039759

I hope that this issue is sorted soon.

Cheers,

Hugh

Hi Worth,

Have you tried using the CLI installer? https://wiki.mahara.org/index.php/System_Administrator%27s_Guide/Installing_Mahara#Run_the_Command-Line_Interface_Installer

If that works, it may give a slightly different error once installed so can see more clearly what is going wrong?

Cheers,

Hugh

I have no problem of installing a fresh Mahara 1.5.2 on FreeBSD 8.3 using Postgres 8.3.18, Apache 2.2, PHP 5.3

Can you please check the problem of query Postgres DB? some reasons that the mahara tables could not be created.

Cheers,

Not entirely sure I follow what you mean by "check the problem of query Postgres DB" but the database user can connect to PostgreSQL. The same db user account and db user password are in use with other instances of Mahara on the same server and connect and interact normally.

FWIW, that server is running PostgreSQL 9.1, PHP 5.4.5, Apache 2.2.22

Thanks!

My fresh Mahara has been successfully been installed on server running FreeBSD 8.3, PostgreSQL 9.1, Apache 2.2.22, and PHP 5.4.6.

Did you created a new Mahara database and grant it to the db user?

Have you tried MANUALLY to create/update tables on this database connected as this db user?

Cheers,

Son Nguyen
