Installation stalls after Step #2

Installation stalls after Step #2

I am trying to install 1.11 but after I enter the database and connection information and click Next, I am getting a blank page. When I view the page source, there is no code.
I have removed the entire Power Gallery directory, deleted the database and started from scratch - same results.

Any ideas?? Thanks

is it install/2.php that displays blank, or install/3.php?


add the following code to the page that displays blank at line 1:

php:
<?php

error_reporting
(E_ALL);
ini_set('display_errors','on');
?>



this will turn error reporting on to help us figure out what is going wrong.

what version of MySQL are you trying to install on?

MySQL version

It's version 5. What I don't understand is that the Power CMS is also installed and working on this account so why would the Gallery not work?

what version of php?

the mysql_set_charset command wasn't introduced until version 5.2.3.

We updated power gallery to force the db to use the UTF8 character set to address a problem people where having when trying to store special characters in the image description.

you can get around the error by going to Connections/powergallery.php and Install/scripts/connection.php and changing line 10:

php:
mysql_set_charset('utf8',$powergallery);



to:

php:
//mysql_set_charset('utf8',$powergallery);



but if you try to use special characters in the image description, you will run into issues.
