The requested URL /blog/admin/install/success.php was not found on this server.
This is what I get when I don't check the Use InnoDatabase TAbles

And this is when I do check it.

Now what?

Stop creating new topics!!

If you already hit the install once, the tables exist. You can't run the install again without first deleting the existing tables. Go into your mysql admin and drop the tables if you are going to run the install again. Did you read my post in your first topic? I gave you step by step instructions.

Fix your $_CONF['site_url'].

Otherwise: What jmucchiello said.

I'm also going to delete some of your topics now, they're only cluttering the forum. Please stick to one or two threads. Thank you.

bye, Dirk

I'm sorry.

But I'm really getting impatient with this and I'm just starting to get to the meat and potatoes. I did this.

I get the following error:

1050: Table 'gl_access' already exists

Answer:

You must have run the install script before (possibly unsuccessfully). To be on the save side, drop the database and create a new, empty database before trying to run the install script again.

I emptied the database, tried to run the install again
but I don't know whether to check the box or not.

I'll go back and read everything you've said before I try to do anything else.

If you don't know what InnoDB is, just leave the checkbox unchecked ...

I read that also and did as I was told. I dropped the entire database! Then I set up a new one with the same name
and put in the same user, same password.

Then ran the install again and got the same thing!
1050: Table 'gl_access' already exists

How can it already exist when I dropped all the tables?

It can't. You must be doing something wrong.

I realise this must sound snappish, but that's all I can say with the minimal information you're providing. When you drop a table (properly), it doesn't exist any more, period.

Hmm..maybe this is why?

When I ran the install script from http://www.dollardayhits.com/blog/admin/install/install.php
this is the url that comes up.
http://www.example.com/blog/admin/install/success.php
which of course is coming up not found.

example.com? Obviously I've put something in the wrong place in the file. This isn't the url that's supposed to be there is it?

Also I'm sending a screen shot of the config.php
file as I'm viewing it in my blog directory. I have it circled in red.
http://www.dollardayhits.com/blog/config_path.gif
So the correct path would be /home/dollarda/public_html/blog right?
Should public_html be included if I moved the files
out of that directory? Or should it just be /home/dollarda/blog ?

Now I really don't know what to do.
When I drop the tables and run install, making the path
/home/dollarda/public_html/blog
it tries to add /blog again
so it comes back unfound with The requested URL /blog/blog/admin/install/success.php was not found on this server. So I try dropping the tables again and using
/home/dollarda/public_html
and get this.
Warning: main(/home/dollarda/public_html/config.php/system/databases/mysql.class.php) [function.main]: failed to open stream: Not a directory in /home/dollarda/public_html/system/lib-database.php on line 117

Fatal error: main() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/home/dollarda/public_html/config.php/system/databases/mysql.class.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php'Wink in /home/dollarda/public_html/system/lib-database.php on line 117
So now I'm assuming there is an error in the common-lib.php file. Is that what's going on?

I'm really trying here. Please try to be patient with me
it's my first time doing this and I know I'm a pain in the rear.
