Hi,

all the installation files are in a tar.gz file. and instructions refer to unpacking these on the server. I use a hosted server and I have no idea how to issue a shell command. I only know how to ftp the file up there.

Can you help me understand how to do that?

Also, why don't you just create a zip file and let us upload them with an ftp program?

Thanks,

Robert

Just installed. Got the tar.gz file to uncompress and completed the installation. Got this message on login:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: stripos() in /homepages/17/d129260592/htdocs/E7Thunders/ATutor/include/vitals.inc.php on line 224

I see others have had this too. What is the usual cause? I did the tar on the server as suggested.

Loks like your hosting uses PHP 4. ATutor 1.6.4 requires PHP 5.0.2 or higher.
Have a look at this page please: www.atutor.ca/atutor/docs/requirements.php

Thanks, I just figured since the installation did not mention that requirement that it would not be a problem. I am taking steps to upgrade to the 5.0.2 version now.

Hm... Strange, I thought it did check the PHP version.

It did check it, but reported no problem with the PHP version. But now, I changed the .htaccess file by adding this line at the beginning:

AddType x-mapp-php5 .php

and now I can login.

Thanks!
