    In php.ini there'll be a property called "memory_limit = 8M" or similar. Or, try "ini_set('memory_limit', '8M')" at the top of sapphire/main.php.

    Re: Errors Installing with Xamp Link to this post


    i tried installing SS, and came across an error right at the start. i found this thread, and followed all the instructions.

    mod_rewrite is enabled. here's the line:
    LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so [i activated this]

    in php.ini, the memory limit line reads as follows:
    memory_limit = 32M ; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume (16MB) [this is standard]

    in sapphire/main.php, the memory line reads as follows:
    ini_set('memory_limit', '32M'); [this is standard]

    i added a password to the user. user is root, and password is something i'm not comfortable sharing here ;-)

    this is the first message i receive, after trying to 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 'mysite/_config.php'...
    # Creating C:\xampp\htdocs\nmcbusiness/mysite/_config.php
    # Creating '.htaccess' file...
    # Creating C:\xampp\htdocs\nmcbusiness/.htaccess

    # Checking mod_rewrite works

    # ERROR: mod_rewrite not working, redirecting to mod_rewrite test page
    # Creating C:\xampp\htdocs\nmcbusiness/.htaccess I will now try and direct you to rewritetest to troubleshoot mod_rewrite

    this is the final message:

    Warning: file_get_contents(http://localhost/nmcbusiness/InstallerTest/testrewrite) [function.file-get-contents]: failed to open stream: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond. in C:\xampp\htdocs\nmcbusiness\rewritetest.php on line 47

    Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 60 seconds exceeded in C:\xampp\htdocs\nmcbusiness\rewritetest.php on line 47

    it creates 54 tables in the database (if this info is important)

    i run xampp 1.6.7 on vista home premium. machine is toshiba. 3Gb ram. 1.83 Ghz intel core 2 duo.

    any ideas? i'm really amped to use this CMS. seems wonderful.
