I just downloaded the Event Calendar Module, unpacked it. changed the directory name to event_calendar. It unpacks as "modules-event_calendar-r88" and the config file is looking for "event_calendar." I upload to the root of my SS install and append "db/build?flush=1" to my base URL. All I get is:
There has been an error
The website server has not been able to respond to your request.
I remove the directory and everything's working again. If I got an error message that wasn't quite so abstract, I'd have a fighting chance at fixing the problem. But, the above text doesn't help.
Problem: Not entirely sure. I added the line to my _config.php, pushed it up to the web server, and expected to see some additional output. Instead, the module installed properly. Now I'll never know what was really wrong. One thing I did different was type add a / after build, as in db/build/?flush=1. I see it entered both ways all over. Does that slash need to be there? The documentation here shows it without.
So I install event_calendar. Discover that the instructions don't tell you to rename the directory to event_calendar ((might save a few posts here eh?) rename the directory and then discover from the fine print that dataobject manager is required. (not exactly in caps or anything)
