I installed Drupal 6 using GoDaddy and uploaded Prosepoint into its own folder but now I'm getting this message when I try to set up the Prosepoint database:

Failed to connect to your MySQL database server. MySQL reports the following message: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/usr/local/mysql-5.0/data/mysql.sock' (2).

  • Are you sure you have the correct username and password?
  • Are you sure that you have typed the correct database hostname?
  • Are you sure that the database server is running?

For more help, see the Installation and upgrading handbook. If you are unsure what these terms mean you should probably contact your hosting provider.

--------------------------------------------------------------

I'm using this info:

 

Database name:  ent1022102472984

Database username: segacom

Database password: Myway111.

---------------------------------------------------------------

Can someone tell what to do? I don't even know what a command line looks like. Should Prosepoint be in loose in the Drupal folder?

Thanks

ken

Hi,

ProsePoint is to be installed separate from Drupal 6. ProsePoint includes Drupal 6 within it. Don't try to upload ProsePoint into an existing Drupal 6 installation because it won't work.

Your mysql messages ... don't look like a problem with ProsePoint. They look more like a general configuration issue with your hosting account. You'd be better off asking your hosting provider.

Clean URLs?

I have been able to connect to the Sql database and move on to the Configure Site page, but now I have run into the Clean URLs message saying my system does not support this feature. I have read the linked pages from the manual but can't figure out how to do this. Help?

Hi, Please check your browser

Hi,

Please check your browser is javascript enabled. You may also need to wait a few seconds for the clean urls test to be performed.

Otherwise, please ask your hosting provider to enable mod_rewrite (which is the inbuilt component of Apache that clean urls uses, and is usually already turned on).

Checked but no joy
I checked that javascript is enabled (it is) and found the Apache mod-reqrite oprion in my Joomla global configuration and turned it on. But your package offers no such option. Where else can I change that?

Hi,

For ProsePoint, this is already built in.

There should be a .htaccess file in the ProsePoint main directory. This file governs the mod_rewrite configuration (and hence, also clean urls).

Maybe see if this file exists for your installation. If so, you can also try to tweak the settings inside.

If you are running ProsePoint in a subdirectory, I think you may need to change RewriteBase in the .htaccess file.

No .htaccess

.htaccess file not showing up in main directory of brand new download of .35.

Sure you put it there?

Hi,

Yes, the file .htaccess is in there in 0.35.

However, it's a hidden file in linux/unix filesystems. Maybe your uncompression program or your ftp uploading program missed it?

This reminds me of the Jimmy Bufet song: If the phone doesn't ring it's me. If I can't see it, how do I know?

Frankly, I don't have time to work with this install. It's more probelmatic than it's worth to me right now. I was considering it to organize a regional news web site with multiple writers, editors, and photgraphers.  But it will be a while before we're ready and I think I'll wait until you work out some of the install bugs. This project has GREAT potential and I hope you continue to develop it. Iwill look in on you later when we get closer to the regional site. Thanks for all your help.
