View Full Version : Php Nightmare

11-22-2004, 06:56 PM
I have just installed phpwebsite (it comes as part of my hosting package) and now I just don't know where to start.

The installation is @ http://mmmboptastic.com/php/

Is there anywhere that explains what to do to get everything set up?
Php is incorporated into html isn't it? Please....I need help!! :confused:

I don't even know where to find the admin panel as when I log in on that page I just get all of those errors.

Thanx in advance.


PS If anyone wants to talk me through this off the forums my msn is joannemojo@hotmail.com :(

You can incorporate PHP into HTML by adding PHP to a HTML file and then using a .php extension instead of a .html extension.

Firstly, I've never heard of PHPwebsite, the nearest thing I use to administer PHP through a SQL database is phpMyAdmin - this is also free and comes with most web hosting packages. So does the PHP Modules and a MySQL Database (well, every one I've seen does)

To find your phpMyAdmin login/admin page to administer it (or PHPwebsite in this case), the best thing to do is to contact your host and ask, but usually you should have got instructions as to where it is.
There are loads of tutorials available on the internet. The best ones I know are:
www.php.net and www.mysql.net.

If you're getting loads of errors with the installation, the best thing to do would be to contact your host and ask for everything to be reset/reinstalled, as the most likely things to be spewing out errors are either misconfigurations or corrupt installations.

Anyhow, hope you find you solution...and welcome to Coding Forums!

Thanx for your help.

I have given up on phpwebsite!! lol. I'm now going with PhpNuke as it suits my needs and will give my site the interactive features I wanted without the headaches (sorta!!)

I'm still having trouble but of a different type!! lol.
