Howdy,

Im new to CI and tried to install it based on the installation guide you guys provide with the beginners guide, and also followed other install guides available on the web. I just moved from a windows environment to a linux one so i might be really doing some crazy wrong stuff with this but i swear i'm loosing my mind :|. So here are my steps:

note: im using Xampp(Lampp) for linux wich kindly installed apache+php and mysql residing in /opt/lampp/

1 - downloaded version 1.7.1

2 - moved CodeIgniter_1.7.1 directory to /opt/lampp/ht_docs/

3 - changed dir name from "CodeIgniter_1.7.1" to "shout"

4 - edited ht_docs/shout/system/application/config/config.php

5 - changed $config['base_url'] = "http://example.com"; to $config['base_url'] = "http://localhost/shout/";

6 - opened browser and gone to http://localhost/shout/index.php/ to see if installation was successful

the page displayed:

Should it not be htdocs instead of ht_docs? Or did you change some config settings somewhere?

[eluser]meckanism[/eluser]
ops sorry it is htdocs my mistake.

EDIT: ok sorry guys problem is solved, dunno why but it started working now ( downloaded files and did the steps again and it worked fine, and i did do that like an hour ago with no luck ) maybe some files got corrupted i dunno, im just happy it works now Big Grin

So did that fix the problem or was it just a typo when you wrote up your steps here?

#5
[eluser]meckanism[/eluser]
it was a typo everything was set properly. Guess a re-installation fixed it somehow now i can start finally =) thanks for the help Dam1an!
