tgtje commented Jan 30

Provided info to narrow, need to know php version, update etc.. Is php 7.2 in use? (work in progress, something in that version gives problems) If possible use a lower version eg in the 7 - 7.1 branch. The more info the better can be helped

I do believe the error you experienced is 'fixed' , some alterations are made to the systems files.
Best to update with Github pack >  https://github.com/e107inc/e107  right side; take a zip (delete the install file) and overwrite ..

I did that and I'm still stuck on Page 6 of the install.  I assume that it's because Website Theme section is blank and I can't select anything.

  • Apache/2.4.29 (Win32)
  • OpenSSL/1.1.0g
  • PHP/7.2.2

Using the latest  Xampp ? Is install path so no updating/overwrite, use the full (dev)pack you can download from Github, not the one from org.

DeViLbOi commented Feb 18

It is XAMPP 7.22.

Yes...I installed XAMPP to C:\XAMPP to avoid the windows read/write issues.

I did download the full pack from Github as your answer suggested.  I tried three times before posting here.  I then left for the vet.  When I returned a couple of hours later it finished the install without issue.  Is the install reliant on e107.org/themes being available?  Seems strange but it's the only thing I can think of that might have changed while I was at the vet.

Caching is likely to be the culprit here, either browser (local) or on the server.

No it is not, as all needed, is on the (zip) pack.

Note: when running admin it will try to contact the e107 server for latest update availability and messages on plugins/themes/news

To be sure i downloaded the latest Xampp and installed...I do have to asume you are aware of the folowing points (these become more important since the serverpacks are being rewritten to comply with newer php versions..) >

Visual Studio C++ 2017 aka VC15

Be sure !! that you have installed the latest C++ Redistributable Visual Studio 2017 : vc_redist_x64 or vc_redist_x86 (updated 5 December2017).

 (php info page third line : Compiler MSVC15 (Visual C++ 2017) !!! (is it there?) Although compat with VC14 should exist...carefull... (so it is for xampp and also wamp).: here's my info:

As you can see it is created just before this posting, and i have NO issues whatever.. It installs (about 3-4 minutes). Posting here  time  +/- 14:35  (13:35 +1)
No settings changed, using all fresh without any extra things.. Install xampp, create folder in htdocs (e107 is unpacked), run install > done...
One confession to take into consideration : i do not know if the new Xampp has VC15 build in, as i already had it installed on my pc
