Can phpBB be installed in HostMonster hosting package?

Post by farrukh004 »

Can it be done? I am trying to install but I am having hell lot of problems. I have uploaded it and made MySQL database. But I am not able to get to far.

When I try to install it, it gives me the following error on pressing 'Proceed to next step' on Install Tab:


Warning: Cannot load module 'SQLite' because required module 'pdo' is not loaded in Unknown on line 0

It's much better to install phpBB yourself, you can find a quick-start guide here. :)

Did you get to the step where you enter database information? If yes, are you selecting MySQL as the Database type?

JimA: Hostmonster is just a hosting company, I think the installation is manual :)

I know. It showed me the requirements and then I clicked 'Proceed to nest step' and this error appeared. I have not entered any information at all.

The SQLite extension isn't loaded properly in PHP and the loading of it fails. Try this small hack, you will edit includes/functions_install.php and turn SQLite off as a possibility, so phpBB won't try to load it.

Find these lines in the file and delete them:

Code: Select all

        'sqlite'        => array(
            'LABEL'            => 'SQLite',
            'SCHEMA'        => 'sqlite',
            'MODULE'        => 'sqlite',
            'DELIM'            => ';',
            'COMMENTS'        => 'remove_remarks',
            'DRIVER'        => 'sqlite',
            'AVAILABLE'        => true,
            '2.0.x'            => false,
        ),

I have posted a support ticket with Hostmonster for I am having the same problem as the others with phpBB 3.0.3. I had no problem with phpBB 3.0.2.
Hostmonster says it has PDO on the servers, but for me their solution of adding

Code: Select all

extension=pdo.so
extension=pdo_mysql.so
from their knowledge base hasn't worked.

If they cannot come up with a solution, then I will try your suggestion ameeck

Hostmonster will install PDO on your server if it doesn't have it. Just fill out a support ticket and they usually get to it within 12 hours. They have installed it on mine and the phpBB install is working correctly now.
When all else fails, read the instructions
