Getting settings failed - Johan1974 - 03-04-2014


I am trying to install it but everytime i get the message that the datadirectory does not exist (but it is there with all the rights)
And finally i get the following message

"Getting settings failed: Table 'opendocman.odm_settings' doesn't exist"

If i look in the MySql Databse it is there.

How can i solve this?

You will normally see the settings message if you have a config.php file but have not installed the database. Was this a manual installation or did you use the auto-installer?

check the config.php file after setting
and do manual installations.

It may also help if you tell us what OS you are installing to.
