    Something didn't take well....

    Make sure your server has the minimum system requirements


    Assuming this is a fresh install and you had nothing there. Dump the database and start over...

    Re-upload your files using binary mode in your ftp program (as to be sure files are uploaded correctly)

    Make sure you have the folder /data/ and /internal_data/ chmod to 777

    Be sure you've correctly filled out your database name, user name, password, and port correctly. Rather than using localhost try using

    If you still need help.... I could do a quick install for you (at no cost)

    Specifically, it appears that this file is missing:


    Definitely re-upload the files.

    We are moving hosts. Once we get the fresh install...what should we do from there as far as file and databases...
    whats the best way to uploading files and creating a database. Than running an installer?

    If all you're doing is moving host.... There is no reason to install or re-install

    Make sure your server on your new host has the minimum system requirements


    Simply download all the files from your old host and upload them to your new host.

    Then make a new database and user name.

    Change the config.php to match it.

    Next import your database.

    Make sure /data/ and /internal_data/ permissions are correct

    TIP: Make several backups (files and database) from your old host.

    Thank you. You two are very helpful. I will get back to this when FTP transfer is done.
