Trouble with installing - Raymondt - 02-15-2021

Hi,
So i must be overlooking something, because i can't seem to install HelpdeskZ.
So I'm running :
Ubuntu 20.04
Php 7.4
Mysql 8
Apache
intl extension, mbstring and imap extension.
I have copied the files in the zipfile to the folder /var/www/html/helpdeskz/ and those folders and subfolders seem to be reachable from the browser, so it seems apache is working. However, in the zip file i downloaded (https://github.com/helpdesk-z/helpdeskz-dev/archive/2.0.1.zip) there is no Install directory, so i seem to be missing the install script.
There is an install directory in /helpdeskz/hdz/ , but this directory only contains 3 .sql files, so they cannot be executed from the browser.
Am i missing something? or is my downloaded package missing something?

Thanks
Ray

Hi,

The script does not contact an install folder, it's just a route path and script will detect it if apache mode rewrite is enable.

So if you visit http://yourhelpdesk.com/install will appear the installation wizard. Do you get any error there?

PS: Do not forget to rename the file Helpdesk.new.php to Helpdesk.php from /hdz/app/Config/HelpDeskz. Also edit the content to set your database connection.


RE: Trouble with installing - Raymondt - 02-16-2021

Hi,
So when i go to my webserver to /helpdeskz/install i see this:
Not Found
The requested URL was not found on this server.

Apache/2.4.41 (Ubuntu) Server at x Port 80

When i go to /helpdeskz/ i see this:

Whoops!

We seem to have hit a snag. Please try again later...


And yes, i did rename the Helpdesk.New.php to Helpdesk.php and i have edited it so that it contains the right configuration information.

Hi,

If you get error 404, then mod rewrite is not enable or verify that .htaccess file is is in your site.


RE: Trouble with installing - Raymondt - 02-17-2021

Hi,
I've tried moving the package to another server. I've enabled mod rewrite, and now i get the error:

Not Found

The requested resource was not found on this server.


So it's not a 404 this time, the error differs from the other one, but it still errors.

@Raymondt,

I had that exact same issue.

When you setup the files, you don't have the .htaccess file like @Andres mentioned. That file was not in the download I got either.

I had to create a .htaccess file in the root directory and copied this there:

https://github.com/helpdesk-z/helpdeskz-dev/blob/master/.htaccess

Then it worked perfectly.

Try that!


RE: Trouble with installing - Raymondt - 02-22-2021

Hi redjim,

Thanks for your suggestion, however, in my packages the .htaccess is already there, and is also the right one. So this is not the issue that i am facing.


RE: Trouble with installing - Andres - 02-22-2021

Check if your server meets Helpdeskz requirements:
intl extension, mbstring extension and imap extension.


RE: Trouble with installing - Raymondt - 02-23-2021

Hi Andres, it does. all 3 are installed and are also shown on the phpinfo page.

I don't have too much information to solve your issue, you can email me to [email protected] and if you wish you can provide your hosting panel data and I can fix it.
