Install does not progress to step 3 after skipping wordpress

  • Hi, I’m attempting to install bbpress on Windows Server 2003 Ent SP2, IIS6, MySQL 5.1.34 community, PHP 5.2.9-2:

    I have followed this guide to installing & configuring PHP: http://www.peterguy.com/php/install_IIS6.html

    Step 1 – bb-config.php succeeds

    Step 2 – skipping wordpress integration as don’t have this installed

    On clicking Goto Step 3, the installation doesn’t get anywhere and the browser returns:

    “Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

    Most likely causes:

    You are not connected to the Internet.

    The website is encountering problems.

    There might be a typing error in the address. “

    Any help please?

    What is the URL that’s being displayed? Can you paste the link here?

    IIS is configured for several websites, each with it’s own ip address allocated. The URL I’m using to configure bbpress is http://newintranet.savethechildren.org.uk/forums/bb-admin/install.php

    The ‘newintranet’ website is allocated ip address 10.1.10.49

    The mysql settings in the bb-config file is as follows:

    define(‘BBDB_NAME’, ‘bbpress’);

    define(‘BBDB_USER’, ‘Forum’);

    // the user Forum has been granted all privileges to the bbpress db

    define(‘BBDB_PASSWORD’, ‘Forum’);

    define(‘BBDB_HOST’, ‘localhost’);

    // mysql is installed on the same IIS server listening on ip 10.1.10.53 standard port 3306

    define(‘BBDB_CHARSET’, ‘utf8′);

    define(‘BBDB_COLLATE’, ‘utf8_general_ci’);

    The physical directory structure is as follows:

    I found this site, very useful for anyone trying to install/configure php on windows server: http://www.iisadmin.co.uk/?p=4

    Following the above article, and related mysql & wordpress articles, all now works.
