  • Gallery installation Failed

    Jan 11, 2011 03:46 AM|g_malusardi|LINK

    Hi there,

    a hoster my customer is testing his env for WebMatrix compatibility.

    He is testing Gallery installation by WebMatrix.

    When he uses WebMatrix to download and install Gallery on the developer machine he is asked to install also:

    • MySQL Connector/.Net 6.2.3
    • PHP 5.2.14 For WebMatrix
    • MySQL windows Essential 5.1

    MySQL Windows Essential 5.1 installation fails with this error: "Configuration template file cannot be foud"

    If needed I've the installation logs

    Any advice?

    Hello,

    I suggest that you look at this

    Another post on missing installer.

    post : http://forums.iis.net/t/1174162.aspx

    It has a link to where the common MySQL Installers are located.

    I suggest that you get installer that best matche for  X86 or X64 and the system.

    If you have more questions post to this thread.

    Thank you Martin!

    I have read the post, and yes this is a valuable solution but I think WebMatrix should handle all the installation process if I use it to install an application on my "developer" machine.

    IMHO this is a problem in WebMatrix and a tipical WebMatrix users should not be asked to search the correct installer etc...

    Have a good day

    Hello,

    I will agree that the "Web Platform" install should be automatic.

    To help the resolve the problem could you make

     a direct  contact via comment

     email to the Team in the IS Net Blogs.

    Thank you,

    Martin :)

    Sorry Martin but I didn't understand you. 

    What do you mean with "make a direct contact via comment email"?

    A quick web search seems to refer to mysql forums which don’t have a fix but mention that this error might occur when the mysql directory is locked.

    I guess the best suggestion is to uninstall mysql and connector, clean up %programdata%\mysql and %programfiles%\mysql and then install Gallery again.

    Hi,

    The issue is the Web Platform installers "XML" file is missing where to get the

    proper installer. This is why the comments to have the Team update the program.
