PHP Version >= 4.3.10 Yes
- Zlib Compression Support Yes
- XML Support Yes
- MySQL Support Yes
MB Language is Default No PHP mbstring language is not set to neutral. This can be
set locally by entering php_value mbstring.language neutral in your .htaccess file.

MB String Overload Off Yes
configuration.php Writable No You can still continue the installation as the
configuration settings will be displayed at the end. You will have to manually
upload the code.

Click in the text area to highlight all of the code and then paste
into a new text file. Name this file 'configuration.php' and upload it to your site
root folder.

Please run the phpinfo() script from your web_root/ directory

Add the following code to a new file and save as info.php (name is unimportant call it what-you-like)

Code: Select all

<?php
phpinfo();
?>

Upload this file to your web_root/ directory and then call it from your Web browser as http://yourdomain.com/info.php .

Save the HTML output and zip it up and add that file to your forum post using the upload attachment function to the bottom left of the Post Editor screen.

I got the same problem, and I've tried adding the string to htaccess but my website keeps giving me an error 500. Does this means that my webhost is restricting me?

php info attached...

Hi,

You can contact your hosting provider and ask them to solve for you. I did that.

I tried that and got an reply that just stated the same as the joomla install, i had to put some code into a .access file and it should be corrected, but it didn't. I sent a new service ticket to my provider, but have not heard anything from them in 4-5 days now... are ther eany way i can fix this other than with the .htaccess file? or what will happen if i go forward with the install without fixing this? (added phpinfo file in the post)

Hi guys,

To solve this without contacting your service provider is actually quite simple.

If it does not already exist create a file in the root of your website (Where your index.php file is) called ".htaccess" (without the quotes). Then simply place the following line in the file:

php_value mbstring.language neutral

Save and close and that error should disappear.

For the other error. Go to the root of your webserver again and make a copy of configuration.php-dist and call it configuration.php. Now after you have done that you need to temporarily change the permissions on that file so that the webserver can write your configuration to it.

If you are using ssh to connect to your webserver simply use the chmod command:
chmod 777 configuration.php

Otherwise if you are using a graphical program, ensure that you change its file permissions to read write and execute for all users.

Warning: After you have installed Joomla remember to switch back the file permissions, otherwise it is a security hole.

Hope that solves both the problems,

Callaghan001.

Hello guys, appreciate this is an old post but I'm having exactly the same problem as sjorkode - I add the .htaccess file and get a 500 internal error. Did anyone manage to sort this?

Cheers

John

OK, found a couple of solutions to this depending on what you're doing:

For basic install issues add the following to your php.ini file (located in your root folder - or make a new one):

mbstring.language = Neutral

That should override the server settings and reset the site to neutral.

If you're running an Akeeba back up and have the same problem (the issue I was experiencing) then follow this thread and edit the installation/includes/logic/index.php as described: https://www.akeebabackup.com/support/fo ... lt-no.html

Worked a treat for me.

Cheers

Hi to everyone,
I have common installation problems with:

MB Language is Default No;
Register Globals: On

I have tried changing
.htaccess
php.ini
by adding these commands in one of them and both of them.
register_globals = 0
php_value mbstring.language neutral

That didn’t help. Is there another solution? Is MB Language is Default important? Could somebody help me in this situation please? I also attached my info.php file.
