Trying to install 1.5 onto a Windows server at GoDaddy.
After creating the database, I had to create a DSN ?
I got an error that mySQL was missing, but this post got the installation completed: http://wordpress.org/support/topic.php?id=14126#post-156395
There were many many errors about tables, but it did install and phpmyadmin shows all is good.
The url to the blog was set wrongly, and kept defaulting to root so I had to load options.php directly, change it there and save.
The problem right now is that clicking "Plugins" gets me this:
"Couldn't open plugins directory or there are no plugins available."
I can't CHMOD on IIS (can I ?) and I have tried various things to sort it (seeing as I'm shooting in the dark some here):
- plugins.php from svn code does not work.
- the fixed login issues from http://www.simmonsconsulting.com/wordpress/?p=160 do not help (not that I thought they would, but doesn't hurt to try eh ?)
- all searches here result in dead threads
- codex has nothing ?
The infophp has these which may be needed ?
getmyinode, getopt, getrusage, extension_loaded, dl, mysql_pconnect, crack_check, crack_closedict, crack_getlastmessage, crack_opendict, fsockopen, pfsockopen, mysql_list_dbs, mysql_stat, ini_get, ini_get_all, ini_alter, ini_set, get_current_user, get_defined_constants, get_include_path, php_ini_scanned_files, php_uname, phpcredits, restore_include_path, set_include_path, set_time_limit, version_compare, zend_version, getmypid, getmyuid, getmygid, assert_options, assert, fopen, fwrite, fread, file, fpassthru, file, mail, opendir, readdir, closedir
Also, the Dashboard shows no feeds and the confirmation mail was not sent.
Does anyone have anything to help ?
(Apologies if I have missed anything.)
Or is this just a very restrictive hosting situation ?
