Topic: new installation can't get it to go through the setting up procedure
Hi I have decided to install cutenews 2.1.2 on a basic website. I had previously uploaded 2.0.1. I deleted all the 2.0.1 folders and uploaded the 2.1.2 folders. Edit: I am hoping that the website as its developing will not crash under PHP 7.
I can't get it to go into the procedure to allow access. The Cutenews folder is set to 707. When I go to myweb/cutenews nothing happens. Edit: what does going to the cutenews folder actually do? Is there a program waiting to run?
I do not think that all the Cutenews folders have been uploaded. I'll check the download and upload any missing. Well I have uploaded the directory again and had to also upload some that were missed out. Still no luck.
Edit: the site has a Unix server and is set to PHP 7.
There is no reference in the readme to how to run the installer. I checked my earlier versions of Cutenews and found that (in 1.5. beta) to go to mywebsite/cutenews/index.php I altered the directory CuteNews as downloaded to cutenews just in case that is an issue with title caps No difference. So I am stuck. Since in 15 years I have only installed Cutenews on three websites is it any wonder that I had forgotten how to get the installer running.
Firefox does nothing, MS Edge gives an HTTP 500 error as does Chrome.
On contacting the host there was a fatal php error. On inspection some sub-directories were missing from the upload. After several attempts to ensure that all the directories were uploaded the installation went ahead. I had used Acebit FTP 8 as my software to upload files and had not had this issue before. Do not know whether Windows 10 complicated issues. Slow upload speed?
NB If anyone else has had a failure of the software to upload a complete directory (not just CuteNews) from uploading completely I would like to hear from them. Software used: Wise FTP 8 and Avast free edition. Thanks.
