Installation issue at step 2: "template does not exist"

Installation issue at step 2: "template does not exist"

Hi Justin - I added the code to the 2.php as you had suggested. I also put the full absolute path into the file. Both resulted in the following error varying only in the path. This is the errror I received with your first script suggestion:

Warning: session_start() [function.session-start]: Cannot send session cache limiter - headers already sent (output started at /home3/argoctsc/public_html/franksproduce/powercms/install/2.php:2) in /home3/argoctsc/public_html/franksproduce/powercms/install/global.php on line 2

It mentions line 2 of the global.php file. Here are the first few lines of that code:

1 <?php
2 session_start();
4 //check if install has been run before
5 if(file_exists('../Connections/installed.txt')) {
6 header('Location: ../admin/index.php');
7 exit();

I am hoping that this error puts us on the right track.

A couple of additional notes about the error:

The error initially shows up right after the database information is entered (and yes, even with the new error, I still get the "template does not exist" error message).

When I attempt to do the installation again by going back to Step 1 of the wizard, I get the new error between Step 1 and Step 2, rather than between Step 2 and Step 3.

In addition, there was something new with the wizard interface. The Server Diagnostics window was corrupt. This hadn't happened with my previous attempts. I have included a png of the dialog box in the attached zip file.

FYI - I have downloaded the PowerCMS zip file several times, and with each attempt at installation, deleted the folder with the files (powercms), cleared my browser cache, attempted installation with three different browsers, etc., in order to avoid any overlapping problems.

And if you need them, and in the interest of getting this resolved, I have included a few of the relevant files in the attached zip file.

Thanks again for your help.
