Installation Problems
I am trying to install DBMan SQL version. I am able to run the nph-setup.cgi properly and get the following:
DBMan SQL Setup
Let's check your setup and create the neccessary tables.

loading your db.cfg file ... ok.
checking perl 5.004 or better ... ok
checking for DBI module ... ok
trying to connect to database ... ok.
checking for users table ... can't find
dropping and recreating ... dropped ... created ... ok
inserting default user 'admin' password 'admin' ... ok
checking for logging table ... ok
checking for sessions table ... ok
checking for main database table ... ok
creating index table: description ... ok.

Congratulations, you are all set up. Go to db.cgi and log in with admin/admin. Enjoy.

But, when I try to login into DBman using admin/admin, I get "404 Error! The page you are trying to access is not available or cannot be found."

I checked the tables have been created. Any idea why is this happening????

Please help. Thanks.

You need to go to:


The .cgi seems to be missing from the configuration result output. Wink

In my version of DBMan SQL distribution there is no admin.cgi. And, nph-setup.cgi script does not create the directory 'admin' or the file admin.cgi. So, I could not use the suggestion you made. Is admin.cgi really needed.

But, after reading another post by you, I changed:
require "./html.pl";


require $db_script_path ."/html.pl";

It worked !!! I could login, create users, add records, list, delete but modify did not work. I think I need to check the permissions etc to sort it out.

Thanks a ton. I have just started, I'll be back when I need more help.

I'm working on DBManSQL for a month and i still can't modify my records! If i $db_auto_generate = 0; it works fine. So if you find a solution i will be very appreciated.
