Installer Error - standalone/index.php doesn't exist
« on: November 29, 2009, 02:23:29 pm »
I got this error message when running http://localhost:8888/civicrm/install/index.php?mode=standalone

>>>
File permissions
[..]

[IN RED]

Is the standalone folder writeable?   

The user account used by your web-server - Andre - needs to be granted write access to the following directory in order to configure the CiviCRM settings file:
/Applications/MAMP/htdocs/civicrm/standalone
>>>

The Standalone Folder didn't exist.

Then I created the htdocs/civicrm/standalone folder, and tried again.

The checklist went fine, the only warning was about php memory limit (the warning was there the first time as well):

>>>
Memory allocated (PHP config option 'memory_limit')   CiviCRM needs a minimum of 32M allocated to PHP, but recommends 64M. You only have 32M allocated
>>>

When I clicked the install button, I got the message "CiviCRM has been successfully installed"

However, when I loaded http://localhost:8888/civicrm/standalone/index.php I got this message:

>>>
Not Found

The requested URL /civicrm/standalone/index.php was not found on this server.

Apache/2.0.63 (Unix) PHP/5.2.11 DAV/2 Server at localhost Port 8888
>>>

Then I inspected the htdocs/civicrm/standalone folder, and I the index.php file wasn't there - there was only "civicrm.settings.php" and the "files" folder .

What should I do now?

hi,
Are you sure about, you have downloaded correct civicrm?
Because in Drupal install, standalone directory is not present.
It is only present in Standalone version.('civicrm/standalone')

During the installation, you have to give write permission to standalone directory.

No need to create manually, Just you have choose correct civicrm install.

e.g You need to use  'civicrm-3.0.2-standalone.tar.gz'  Or prior standalone version.
