I downloaded then uploaded (Yet again) Drupal, this time version 6.17. It's my multipleth attempt. I usually give up and go on to something else. But this time I'm determined. I have a clean install, a new database with a known loginname and password. But I again got stopped by the Drupal install failure loop. (We call those "undocumented features") Here's my information (For those that care and can make decisions based on a poor install script.) I haven't chosen to go through the manual method. It only lets coders off the hook.

Is the problem Zend? All the instructions I find are for Wamp. I have "Beginning Drupal," by Redding. I'm stuck on page 11. in a phpmyasdmin can't find how to "Add a new User." funk.

cactusmitch, does data.

Required: PHP version 4.4.0 or higher

http://drupal.org/requirements

and possibly even newer for several contributed modules.

Jimmy McCrillis’s picture

According to the link, only 4.1 is required. But your note says that it has to be 4.4.0 or higher. Which is it?

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Database server
Recommended: MySQL 4.1 or MySQL 5.0

Drupal 5.x and earlier supports MySQL 3.23.17 or higher. MySQL 4.1 or higher is strongly recommended.
Drupal 6 supports MySQL 4.1 or higher.

Heine’s picture

Your PHP version is old @ 4.3.11

Jimmy McCrillis’s picture

I was looking at one and thinking the other. (PHP <-> MySQL) I sent a note to my provider to see if they plan to upgrade PHP.

Thanks

cog.rusty’s picture

It is possible that they already provide an easy way to switch to PHP 5. Having only a 5-year-old PHP version is not something that you see often. Check or google their online documentation.

cog.rusty’s picture

PHP 4.4.0, MySQL 4.1
