Topic: Problem installing and getting to the first page
I came across Enano, which looks great. All my desired features and small, seems simple. Well this is from the site.
I gave it a try but I have a lot of issues trying to install it.
I tried on 2 different machines with the dev version 1.1.5 ( I tried with the stable but with similar issue, or even worse it never accept the database connection):
#1 FreeBSD 6.3 - Apache 10341100 - PHP 5.2.6 - mysql Ver 14.14 Distrib 5.1.26 (yes apache is oldddd)
#2 Windows XP - LightTPD/1.4.20-1 - PHP 5.2.6 - mysql 5.0.51a (from http://www.lighty2go.com )
All test were done using both IE6 and Firefox 3.0.6
Issues on #1
The test connection of the DB never return.
If I choose to just proceed, then it fail with some error at the end of install :
Retrieve administrator password failed
The administrator password couldn't be decrypted. This really shouldn't happen.
Issues on #2
All install is going fine without error (a few warning about missing imagemagik but that's all).
When the site is started, I got a missing page for the Main page : There is no page with this title yet.
The same apply for any other page or menu entries. Looking into the db, it's empty.
If I try to login (using the menu on the left), it just end up in missing page special.login/main page
It seems something is missing in the db install.
Additional note with #2 I had to change the mysql setting to increase the cache size or it would just make mysql process dying.
Actually the more important would be to have it on #2 to test it. Installing on #1 will come later.
Any idea for the missing page ? Or is that an upgrade so I need to install the stable first and then upgrade ?
Update : I made it working on #2. The root issue was the db setting. By default new db are created in "collation" mode. This is not working with enano. I had to change it to MyISAM utf8_unicode_ci and then it worked fine. You might want to add this somewhere to the doc.
