Installation problem

edited March 2011 in Installation
Step 1., Step 2. I have copied FuelCMS (v0.9.3-12) into my virtual server.¨
File structure as I unzip downloaded files. All files under Fuel folder. Assests, index.php, .httacess in root.
Step 3. Browse to (ERROR: Fatal error: Class 'CI_Controller' not found in /data/www/virtuals/zkustocz/html/fuel/codeigniter/core/CodeIgniter.php on line 217)

Error on line 217 should be on 210 to, it moves to 217 after I copied newest codeigniter 2 to codeigniter folder.

I am not sure where I am wrong, but it should be something with my installation order, because I had the same problems on my another webhostings.

What is the problem? Codeignitor 2, it self, works fine.

    Within the downloaded folder, there should be an .htaccess, assets, index.php, README, and a fuel folder that has the application, codeigniter, modules etc. in it. You should be able to put that entire structure into your web's root directory and an installation page should show up. Are you seeing that?

    Yes I have this file structure. But installation page not show up.

    Only error "Fatal error: Class 'CI_Controller' not found in /data/www/virtuals/zkustocz/html/fuel/codeigniter/core/CodeIgniter.php on line 210"

    Here is my server php info:

    Can you try downloading the latest from GitHub and take the entire contents of the folder and put it on a webserver without upgrading the CI 2? If you install it in a subfolder say called "test" then the URL would be something like You should see the installation instruction page.

    No change. Only in path to CodeIgniter.php file.

    That is strange. If you look at that file, you'll see a require BASEPATH.'core/Controller'.EXT; right above it. That file should contain the CI_Controller class. Do you see that class in that file?
  • edited 1:44AM
    Yes, this is the one class defined in Controller.php

    I know, that this is strange. But all seems ok, but it does not work.
    I can send you ftp info.

    OK... why don't you do that when you have time. I'd like to know what the issue is. My email address can be found on my profile.

    As this looks similar insofar as my install error(s) should not happen...

    Just to check if something was amiss I created three folders and copied the contents of git to each... I then tried to browse each folder and got three different error reports...

    1st: Cannot redeclare class ci_lang in C:\wamp\www\fuelcms\fuel\codeigniter\core\CodeIgniter.php on line 227

    2nd: Call to undefined function get_filenames() in C:\wamp\www\fuelcms2\fuel\modules\fuel\libraries\Fuel_layouts.php on line 48

    3rd: I got the Welcome page.... but when I try to access, it brings me to my wamp index....

    Windows7, Wamp 2.1, Apache Version 2.2.17, PHP 5.3.5 and MySQL 5.5.8...

    Disregard the first two test installs, I may have had a problem on my side...

    The third install error remain...

    Is the admin "enabled" config parameter set to TRUE in your fuel/application/config/MY_fuel.php?

    Added index.php to $config['index_page'] ... and it worked...
    I could have sworn I have mod rewrite on?

    It looks seriously nice.... sorry fot the bother...
    Oops... just noticed the edit option...

  • Wasted 4 hours checking, doublechecking, re-installing and failing to get a login screen! Thank goodness I stumbled onto this and noted need to enter 'index.php' in the confif file! Almost given up entirely!
