    Trouble setting up phpLD

    Hi guys,

    I have a plan to add a Link directory to the site NewGenre Software and BPO Solutions. Simply like wwwsitename/directory. From the php link directory I have the downloaded copy of the script with me. When i tried to install it in my site it shows some writing CHMOD permission errors. I checked it and that feature is disabled it seems. Though I contacted the hosting providers a few days before, that's not my doubt.

    I created a free hosting account with a site where I could install the directory and it is working perfectly. My question is if am creating a similar index.php page in my own site, will it be possible to utilize the database of the free hosting site. Will inter server database transfers work. I have no idea, please share some information regarding this.

    Thanks.

    To host the database on another server you could try:

    $db_host= "www.yoursite.com" instead of "localhost"

    Hi friend, thanks for the information. I tried to do this way but showing errors still.

    I downloaded the phpld script extracted and uploaded it in to my hosting in the folder Directory

    see http://www.newgenresoft.com/directory it is showing a blank page . What could be the reason.? At lease some error messages should be popped out. Isn't it? I erased the dir and uploaded once again and tried.. Same result.

    I tried both and it was not working..I changed the host and tried again. Now its showing but the host changing for database feature is having some error still.

    This is the message

    An error occured while creating/updating the database structure. Please check if you have appropriate database rights.
    If you require help with your database server settings, please consult your hosting company.
    The database server returned the following message:
    The used table type doesn't support FULLTEXT indexes

    Going to try with another hosting

  6. Why not ask at the PHPLD support forums, they're great with support and fast.

    Did you create a database and assign it a user/pass?

  7. Yes, we would have been happy to help you on the forums. A blank page may have been related to the file permissions not being set yet.

    I think that I would track this issue down with the hosting company before I posted a trouble ticket to the phpLD Forum.
