Installation issues

Hi WA team

I've tried to install PowerMessenger on my server, however the diagnostics tells me, I would need PHP 5.2.3. I have PHP 5.1.6 running on my server.
I've then manually changed line 18 of diagnostic.php from:

//php version
$suffecientPHPVersion = false;
if (strnatcmp(phpversion(),'5.2.3') >= 0){
$suffecientPHPVersion = true;


//php version
$suffecientPHPVersion = false;
if (strnatcmp(phpversion(),'5.1.6) >= 0){
$suffecientPHPVersion = true;

So the installation went smooth, more or less. After manually creating the db-tables and changing some of the parameters in the MySQL-Connection file (set names utf-8), as well as setting the right folder permissions, I could finally login.

However, I can't create new mailings. The solution does not work for me.

I've asked for a refund, as my server obviously doesn't meet the requirements, but WA sales team asked me to post in the foruns to possibly get this solved.
For your info: The system requirements on the PowerMessenger page only asks for:

  Hosting requirements

  • PHP 5+
  • MySQL 4 or MySQL 5
  • Linux and Windows hosts supported


So, if this could be fixed, that would be o.k. for me. Otherwise, I would really get this refunded.

Greetings Willi
