No Database Drivers found!

confused
Hi,
I loaded geeklog onto godaddy server. I created a data base and have successfully recorded the host name, user etc information. I also moved the db-config.php to a new folder that was setup to be private.
I ran the installer and it worked all the way to :Step 2 - Enter configuration information.
Here I get a red text warning that says: No Database Drivers found!

When I enter all the data into the form and press "install" I get "Incorrect database information

Sorry, but the database information you entered does not appear to be correct. Please go back and try again."

:helpme:

That message could mean one of two things:

- either the files in system/databases are not present or not readable
or
- the PHP version on your server does not have support for any database built in

The latter can be checked by calling up the info.php script that we ship with Geeklog. It's in the same directory as the install script, so replace ".../install/index.php" in the URL with ".../install/info.php" and search for MySQL on the page that shows up. There should be an entire section about MySQL on there, with information like "Client API version" etc.

bye, Dirk

Hi, I notice I was not signed in so I created an account.

So Geeklog works on Godaddy but I want to be able to load the site myself (Im a newbie) wordpress guy. so I loaded per instructions and also follow instructions to secure the site's database file. I did that and all works but when I get to the database info page, I add the information and I get the message I wrote about on this form.


So to answer your last message:
I think godaddy supports the correct version of PHP ... because the other geeklog works (Godaddy loaded this one)

that leaves system/databases ....

I going to step though the geeklog install instructions and come back to you

Thanks so much

Am trying to install Geeklog and have made it to step 2 asking for information and am getting the message in bold red letters "No Database Drivers found!". I looked in the info.php page and don't see a section for the MYSQL info. I have MYSQL installed and running, created a database and a username password with all permissions for the geeklog account. So how can I get php to recognize that I have MYSQL installed?

Thanks for any insight

See my post above. You're either missing some files from the Geeklog tarball or your PHP version doesn't have MySQL support built in.

Verify that you have the current up to date version of ODBC driver for MySQL from www.mysql.org for your version of mysql on the server. Some versions do not play well with others, this is why I mention that. If your running a newer version of mysql and your running it under an older version of windows, IE Win2K, then your going to have issues.

unfortunately i do not have that kind of access to machine
so i moved to linux machine
Razz

ty anyway


btw
when i connect to phpmyadmin i can access the database, but i get warnings:
The additional features for working with linked tables have been deactivated. To find out why click here.
Your PHP MySQL library version 5.0.51a differs from your MySQL server version 5.1.36. This may cause unpredictable behavior.

Read this to get a better understanding of how to fix the problem.

Here is also a bit of concern for those running Win2K and XP for servers
