HELP, I spent 120 hours on the problem, and I am completely stopped in my Work because I can't install Tikiwiki on the development tool on windows. I could not find a way to understand why 4.1 installation seam's impossible on windows. A failure, that I could not find till know, on windows is not detected by the product.
Sorry for the length.
I try to install on windows to make test and developments an installation of tikiwiki 4.1 that is on a unix system (OVH provider with shared servers). So I can't have xdebug and many other facilities.
This local replication is needed to begin my participation to the dev.tikiwiki.org.
For this I have :
1- Changed the way to hold .htaccess (patch) For my apache I use the dÃ©finition
My various application are accessed via virtualhosts
this since six years.
2- Enable all needed extension for php : the lonely problem is that it not exists an adodb.dll for php 5.3.0 on windows (not found)
After I tried a manual installation :
- create mysql db with data 4.1
- create local.php
This crash on (see screen xdebug copy) the instruction in tikisession-pdo.phpTikiDb
But when I made the searches (this is the opportunity to go inside the product)
I could not find the way how the instance of the class TikiDb inherit of the setAttribute method from probably Zend_Db_Statement_Pdo
If the link exists I am interested in the fact to understand the structure.
If this come from the lack of the adodb.dll extension (functions and constants) this should be detected and I could not reach this execution point.
Generally may be a detection of php extension features could in the future avoid my "exploration".
I will redact when I will have solved all the problems a document about detail of a good implementation on windows.
Thank's for an answer, because I am locked till 15 days on this problem.
Nota1: I try new clean installation which don't functions, it crashes, after everything seems to be ended well installed the data are empty and a loop of to forms is without issue :
The analyze shows that the POST('user') and POST('pass') are not got back into tiki-install.php and the failed installer is not run again.
Finally if I populate the data base with the data's (SQL) coming from one of the to implementations I reach the same as described upon.
Nota2: The data's are well accessed by phpmyadmin and the parameters OK.
Nota3:'' I run Mysql with mysqli extension. 256Mo of memory for php

May be there are other reasons that I have not found after 100hours of work...
After a lot of work, a boning of the database management with the help of xdebug and eclipse.
I destroy what I said two days ago because of complementary work and it was mainly false.
The crash appends exactly at the point defined in my first message.
I made a quite complete trace of execution with comments, I join the HTML page.
This affects a new clean new installation or a whole manual site transfer from Linux. The problem don't exist with 3.3.
I still could not find or understand how the 4.1 executes well on Linux provided by OVH while with my configuration the TikiDb_Pdo object has no access to the method SetAttribute which seems to be inherited from Zend_Db_Statement_Pdo, but how.
As I could not find the way this class can be associated to the object accessed by TikiDB::get(), I don't understand how the OVH application functions (but I can't look at because there are no tools as xdebug).
It's a deadlock for me and must stop working on TikiWiki if I can't find a solution.
I have developed the beginning of three sites and worked on three month.
Now I spent now on this bugs or like (installation problem not detected by the soft, which locks my lock, more than 130hour (this has been the occasion to :
- use a lot xdebug
- develop my own "exec_trace" for debug using xdebug
- install SVN preparing for work
- install PhpEclipse
- begin to understand the many part of the whole structure of the product
I had program to integrate well the team for :
- on line help and screens
- templates form and mails
- Form : just a test - I integrate the color-picking for text and background color for boxes of text
- Full windows installation with advice for Apachen Php, and Mysql configutation
- Others, I began
With the same parameters (local.php) the 3.3 is well installed and connected. With dysfunctions because of rewrite with "\/\" for windows easy to patch (.htaccess and rewrite adapted to Windows) and the use by the soft when Apache parameter FileAccessName as been changed changed.
So this is a great help because I can't go on spent whole nights.
i am experienced and It is the first I have such a problem.
Without Help I must stop and nobody send me any useful information.
In another way I think that they must exist people who have installed TikiWiki on Windows, so I don't understand where I am locked.
I work alone so may be there is a way that I don't explore, something evident. I checked everything and after one month of work I am still locked.
