    That error message appears when it can't connect to the Database. If you are certain that the info in your fuel/application/config/database.php file is correct, then I would make sure to check that your MySQL server is properly running and that PHP can connect to it. You may even try just doing a simple basic PHP script to connect to the database like so:
    <?php $link = mysql_connect('localhost', 'mysql_user', 'mysql_password'); if (!$link) { die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error()); } echo 'Connected successfully'; mysql_close($link); ?>

    I'm finally happy to say that I was able to connect, and can now see the Dashboard. Onward!!!

    Thanks for you help!

    Hi, I'm having trouble viewing the dashboard when I have installed Fuel in a subdirectory as well. I have tried many combinations of the above, but here's what I have right now.

    I have CodeIgniter installed in the subdirectory /CodeIgniter/ if that matters at all.

    I have edited config.php to:

    $config['index_page'] = "";

    I have edited MY_Fuel.php to:

    $config['admin_enabled'] = TRUE;

    And my .htaccess reads:

    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond $1 !^(index\.php|images|robots\.txt)
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.php/$1 [L]
    RewriteBase /fuel

    And I ran the SQL query.

    Thanks in advance for your help. I am excited to use your product!

    What happens if you use the .htaccess file that came with the download and just change the RewriteBase on line 4 to the subdirectory you installed it in (e.g. RewriteBase /my_fuel_site/?

    I'm assuming you've been able to use .htaccess before on CodeIgniter sites?

    As you suggested, I changed my .htaccess file to:

    Options +FollowSymLinks

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /fuel/


    Order Deny,Allow
    Deny From All


    # Allow asset folders through
    RewriteRule ^(fuel/modules/(.+)?/assets/(.+)) - [L]

    # Protect application and system files from being viewed
    RewriteRule ^(fuel/install/.+|fuel/crons/.+|fuel/data_backup/.+|fuel/codeigniter/.+|fuel/modules/.+|fuel/application/.+|\.git.+) - [F,L]


    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d

    RewriteRule .* index.php/$0 [L]

    Options -Indexes

    I get the "A database error has occurred" error.

    I was able to get into the dashboard by changing my config.php file to:

    $config['index_page'] = "index.php";

    And my MY_fuel.php file to:

    $config['fuel_path'] = 'fuel/';

    And removing the RewriteBase line from my .htaccess file.

    Thanks so much for your help! On a Sunday no less! I would love for the ugly index.php to be gone from my web structure, but I plan on getting a domain exclusively for my Fuel installation once I have it up and running.

    Is the database error because of the database.php config file not being setup? Also, the fuel_path configuration value most likely doesn't need to be changed unless you want to change the name of how you access fuel (e.g. "http://www.myfuelsite.com/admin" instead of "http://www.myfuelsite.com/fuel"). That value is not related to the subfolder you installed FUEL in on your server (in case that may have been changed and thus contributing to your issue).

    Hi!

    I'm trying to install fuel but it doesn't work for me.

    i'm under macos x Lion.

    Fuel folder under www/ is /fuel_cms/

    I modified .htaccess like this:
    Options +FollowSymLinks

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /fuel_cms


    Order Deny,Allow
    Deny From All


    # Allow asset folders through
    RewriteRule ^(fuel/modules/(.+)?/assets/(.+)|fuel/crons/.+|fuel/data_backup/.+) - [L]

    # Protect application and system files from being viewed
    RewriteRule ^(fuel/install/.+|fuel/codeigniter/.+|fuel/modules/.+|fuel/application/.+|\.git.+) - [F,L]


    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d

    RewriteRule .* index.php/$0 [L]

    Options -Indexes

    I got a 404 not found blank page error.

    If I modify $config['index_page'] with "index.php" I got a 404 error from fuel not blank like before, but no admin page.

    I have mod_rewrite enabled and everything seems to be fine.

    Have any idea ?

    Thank you

    Problem solved.
    I had to put an alias in my http.conf !

    Like this:
    Alias /site_name/ /Users/brizoo/Sites/site_name/


    DirectoryIndex index.php
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
    AllowOverride all
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all


    Thank you !

    Great CMS, I love it

    Is your RewriteBase in the .htaccess set to / ?

    If so, make sure .htaccess and the mod_rewrite module is enabled for Apache on the server.

    What if you remove the "?" from after .php:
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php/$1 [L]
