Welcome to a big huge can of worms.

The short answer:  It could any one of several things posted or something not posted yet (as some like myself STILL have not resolved this issue).

The long answer:  Prepare to spend some HOURS sifting through the search results for "cookies do not appear to be enabled".  Try EVERY option you see listed.  Any one (or more??) could be your problem.

You didn't say it, but I'm betting money your running a Windows-based rig with either IIS or Apache as your webserver.    Most importantly, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, document either what you did and more importantly what finally did it for yours to work.  Remember just because the "last thing you tried" works, doesn't mean that was the only problem.  Good luck - May you be one of the lucky ones who get it solved :)

I was having the same problem, and it turned out to be the following line in php.ini:

session.save_path="C:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\php\session"


I commented that out, and it worked.


Good Luck!

In my case (Web Browser Installation on SourceFroge), I was getting a blank screen. I run

Code: Select all

> php installation/index.php>index.html
and faced with the same message afterwards. I solved the problem by using Manual Installation instruction and it worked like a charm. http://help.joomla.org/content/view/1944/302/

Instead of commenting this out, I went to my Temp folder, created a php directory and session and upload subdirectories.....then the Web Installer worked great.

Thanks for that post, Doug.

I was having the same problem (IIS, Windows XP). The answer for me was that the php.ini (which must be stored in your windows directory, like c:\windows) referred to a upload_tmp_dir and a session.save_path to which IIS cannot possibly get access (because IIS runs using a user that is not the logged in user). So if you change those values to a normal directory the whole thing works.

Thanks for you help everybody. Now if I can only figure out how to get my Joomla to work on Godaddy Shared Hosting without switching to Linux... well, we shall see.

Best,
Dan

Dan,
Can you explain what you mean by a normal directory and exactly what steps you took?
