Hi,

I installed composr on my local machine working with Windows and Wamp.

When the installation finished I clicked on the link to go to configuration.

It is trying to go to:
http://highland.comp$2

And I get the error: Server not found.

Can you please help?

Is there a way to subscribe to the forum posts so I'll get an email notification when somebody answers my question?

Thanks

Temporary workaround until the problem is confirmed / fixed: remove the p and the backslash in your URL that appears after .com and see if that takes you to where you need to be.

Also in terms of monitoring this forum, make sure you click the "monitor" button. If it instead reads "unmonitor" then you are good to go and thus don't click it.

Then make sure you have set to receive email notifications by going to Sigal - Composr (your profile) then click edit tab and then notifications tab. Find the "advanced" link beside the item for forum topic activity and click it. Find the name of this forum in the list and tick email notifications. Alternatively you can simply tick email notifications beside forum topic activity, but that may result in getting email from all forums.

Hope this helps :)

Thank you Patrick.

The p is part of my url which is: highland.comp. I removed the backslash and clicked Enter but it just goes back to the same url with the backslash.

No problem, and my apologies on the URL misread. That's quite strange. I'm unable to reproduce the issue on my server. Did you check to see if maybe you accidentally added a backslash in your base URL config option or in any of your rewrite rules (if applicable)?

For some reason the installer is adding %5C (backslash) into the Base URL on Windows installs. Thankfully, this is easy to solve before or after installation.

New installations:-

When you reach Step 4 of the installer, amend the Base URL by removing any erroneous %5C's before proceeding.

Existing installations:-

Just edit your _config.php and amend the Base URL:-

Code

$SITE_INFO['base_url'] = 'http://localhost%5C
Remove any %5C's and save the file then everything should be golden :)

You can just edit the _config.php of the install you currently have, and remove any %5C's there, though by the time you read this you will have likely reinstalled. Either way works :)

Ok, I am busy with a big project and every now and again, jump to try composr on my own site.

So, no I didn't uninstall yet, and will check the config file.

Thanks guys, your support really impresses me.

Ok, I removed the characters in the config file, went to:

comp.com

Waited for a long time, got the login screen, put my login details in and got an error (See attached doc)

I did not install your forum because I don't need a forum in my site.

Attachment

Says the attachment is docx but it's downloading as dat. Probably no use to me if I could read it though :) Ideally you should post the critical error on the tracker, you can paste the full error there and it will be fixed for RC9.

Will take a look at this soon, and also why WYSIWYG allowed the attachment to turn into a raw URL.

  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
