PowerStore 3 - Install Start Over?

PowerStore 3 - Install Start Over?

Powerstore 3
Mac

Ok, I'm wondering if I can just start over. My original question started with "PowerStore Installed - Failed To Launch On Site" dated 2/26. I may have missed something along the way in fixing the issue. If there is something that can help me now, great. If not, perhaps I should just start over given I was so close to a successful install. Unfortunately, 1&1 says I can not remove index.html file or the logs folder, which I think is what keeps the install process from initiation. Can I get around this? Thanks for the help.

Update: I deleted everything from the remote server (1&1) and then uploaded individually install folder and powerstore 3 folder just to see what would happened. Still the same problem. Even tried adding index.php on its own. How far off can I be? I once had this thing loaded only to have the WA_GLOBALS.php issue shut me down. Please help ASAP. Thanks!

Note: I guess the "experts" took off yesterday. My original post was on Mar 1st, 11:43 PDT, and not a single "nibble". Guess I'm using the wrong bait!

What is the problem that you are experiencing? You should just upload the files to your server to and browse to the admin section to start the process. If you are asked to overwrite any files when uploading it you should choose yes.

Hi

some information is stored in a tabnle within the database. I found that the best way is to delete all the tables in the database and the views . Then delete the text file in the connection folder. Unzip the master file and copy the whole lot into the root of your website ie htdocs.

The just type in the domain name and the install sequnce starts. I've tried deletion of specific files but found the best way is to start from scratch

Still a lost child

Gosh I'm so new to this that I'll look extra stupid, but..... Ian, how do I "delete all the tables in the database and the views." Are we talking about the MySQL data base in the server admin? Next, "Then delete the text file in the connection folder." The only connection folder I'm finding is in PS 2. I'm using PS 3. Also, Eric, "You should just upload the files to your server to and browse to the admin section to start the process." Where in the admin (I assume 1&1 admin)? Remember, I can't get the install process to begin. Patience please :) Thanks again!

Hi

theres no such thing as a stupid question! ask away if I can help no problem.

OK so yes you delete the tables in a database and views using phpmyadmin or mysql administrator or ..... there are loads of programs to do this.

In my installation I have a folder called connections which contains a file called installed.txt which lists the dat and time of installing.

I SUSPECT that when you run the install it checks and if it sees that file is effects the installation.

Much Thanks

First and most importantly, thank you for your help! esp. since it appears, you are not on the payroll and I am guessing you are doing this out of the "goodness of your heart"!

Ok, I have MAMP. So I go to phpAyAdminin -- I get localhost and then select databases and get three - 1) information_schema 2) mysql 3) test. #1 has 28 tables, #2 has 23 tables and #3 has no tables. Which tables do I delete, one of them or both? Or maybe I'm on the wrong track all together??

Also, I still am at a loss concerning the connections folder. I don't have one in PS3 and the one I have in PS2 only contains "localhost.php".

Thanks again!

Hi

I use WAMP and the text file seems to be created when the install has done.

Ok re the database as far as I am aware a mysql database contains two parts information scheme and the database you named before running the install.

If you are working on a localhost I'd create a brand new database and start from scratch.

Finally No I'm not on the payroll my experience is limited to a few months re mysql but I have been writing websites for several years,

So I'm on a learning curve as well. In fact I've still not got a working PS3 shop but I'm working on it.

cheers

Ian
