Trying to install ImpressCMS 1.2.6


But moving to page 3of the install I get this:


PHP Notice: Use of undefined constant FILE_PERMISSIONS - assumed 'FILE_PERMISSIONS' in H:\Domains\soso.someone.org\wwwroot\imp\install\page_modcheck.php on line 159


Can someone PLEASE tell how to fix this?


The server is a windows based sever with MySQL5, php5, and also has an MS SQL if I should choose to use it. I also have Pearl support but have never even attemted that one.


I did read Skenow's reply to another guy about this same thing at the ICMS Forums, But mine will not get beyond this. It is an all white page with just that line on it.


php seems to work great with the latest version of phpBB, and Con5, and others I have tried (Joomla!, ocPortal). I am not very happy with Con5 though.


Thanks!

Hello, BroKen1 - are you using IIS as your web server? It seems as though the file and folder permissions are a bit trickier to get right on that. It's not my area of expertise, but we should be able to find some help for you.

As far as I know this is what the web server uses:

"Witness Today offers only Windows® Server 2003 platforms running Microsoft® IIS."

I also have MySQL5 and php support.

I am not sure but could be that it may expecting something from the server side? an SSI possibly?

I can't modify the permissions in the data base, all I can do is create it.

I have other progs running that seem to work fine so I am not sure about this issue, I haven't run into it with the others.

What is a "constant" in a php line anyway? I can't seem to find that answer anywhere.

Thanks for your help, I know this site seems to be geared for more experienced folks. Perhaps the Lord is training me for something, I don't know. I have spent weeks wading through all kinds of progs and script language info to do more than just a static brochure site.

What the error message is telling you is that there is a missing definition (ImpressCMS uses constants that can be defined in files - allows for easy translation into other languages). The definition is indeed missing from the language files. I'll report it and have it taken care of. It shouldn't keep your install from progressing, though. It is only a notice - a 'fatal error' in PHP would stop you.


Do you see anything else on that page? Can you continue?

Nope. Just the one line across the top of a white page.

Here is the line in the code:

159: <?php echo FILE_PERMISSIONS; ?>

Would you like me to pm you with the actual url, so you can see what it's doing?

Yes - please send me the URL and I'll have a look. I may need access to the files, but we'll start here.

I am pretty sure that my host service is not up to date enough to install Impress.

I am going to install Apache locally. that will at least enable me to learn the program. I was able to instal on my machine and connect to the db on my host but it failed with a fast cgi script. It was almost completed!

Thanks for your time in helping me.
