    Installation issues on mediatemple (dv) 3.5 server Link to this post

    I'm currently trying to install SS (2.2.2) on my server and for some reason it keeps failing even though all the installation requirements seem to be met.

    Listed below are the install checks and their results:
    Does the server exist   OK (localhost)
    Are the access credentials correct   OK
    MySQL version at least 4.1   OK (MySQL 5.0.45)
    Can I access/create the database   OK (Database '***dbname***' exists)
    PHP5 installed   OK (PHP version 5.2.6)
    GD2 support   OK
    XML support   OK
    MySQL support   OK
    Memory allocated (PHP config option 'memory_limit')   OK (32M)
    Check that the php.ini setting allow_call_time_pass_reference is on   OK
    Does the webserver know where files are stored?   OK (/var/www/vhosts/***domainname***/httpdocs/)
    mysite/ folder exists   OK
    sapphire/ folder exists   OK
    cms/ folder exists   OK
    jsparty/ folder exists   OK
    Is the .htaccess file writeable?   OK
    Is the mysite/ folder writeable?   OK
    Is the tutorial/ folder writeable?   OK
    Is the assets/ folder writeable?   OK
    Is the temporary folder writeable?   OK
    Server software   OK (Apache/2.2.3 (CentOS) Server at ***domainname*** Port 80)
    mod_rewrite enabled   OK
    However, this is the extent of the install.php output once the "Install SilverStripe" button is pressed to commence install:
    Installing SilverStripe...

    I am now running through the installation steps (this should take about 30 seconds)

    If you receive a fatal error, refresh this page to continue the installation
    # Creating 'tutorial/_config.php'...
    # Creating /var/www/vhosts/***domainname***/httpdocs/tutorial/_config.php
    # Creating '.htaccess' file...
    # Creating /var/www/vhosts/***domainname***/httpdocs/.htaccess
    # Building database schema...

    Doesn't change when safe_mode is on or off either and all php modules necessary are loaded . . .

    It seems to be failing at creating the database tables . . . I can provide the output from phpinfo() if needed, I just really wanna use SilverStripe right now! :-P

    Hi Duyfken,

    Right, luckily for you, i also have a dv 3.5 from (mt) so hopefully i'll be able to help you out.

    Would you mind emailing me the domain name that you are trying to solve, so i can look at the actual page as opposed to the error message.

    It seems to be failing when writing the schema for the DB. Have you tried creating a different user for the mysql db?
