Recent Change in Go Daddy Installation ???

Postby pirkey » Wed Jul 24, 2013 7:35 pm

I have installed both OJS and OCS on GoDaddy in the past. Since they updated their file manager I can no longer extract the .tar.gz file on the server. I can extract on my desktop and then place the expanded folders on the server via FTP. The files are in a folder called "EzConference"

When I try to launch the installer I am getting the following error:

Warning: require_once(core/PKPApplication.inc.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/content/62/8029162/html/EzConference/lib/pkp/includes/functions.inc.php on line 25

Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'core/PKPApplication.inc.php' (include_path='.:/home/content/62/8029162/html/EzConference/classes:/home/content/62/8029162/html/EzConference/pages:/home/content/62/8029162/html/EzConference/lib/pkp:/home/content/62/8029162/html/EzConference/lib/pkp/includes:/home/content/62/8029162/html/EzConference/lib/pkp/classes:/home/content/62/8029162/html/EzConference/lib/pkp/pages:/home/content/62/8029162/html/EzConference/lib/pkp/lib/adodb:/home/content/62/8029162/html/EzConference/lib/pkp/lib/phputf8:/home/content/62/8029162/html/EzConference/lib/pkp/lib/pqp/classes:/home/content/62/8029162/html/EzConference/lib/pkp/lib/smarty:.:/usr/local/php5/lib/php') in /home/content/62/8029162/html/EzConference/lib/pkp/includes/functions.inc.php on line 25

I have already changed the "disable path info" to "On".

Any help would be most appreciated.

Hi Kevin,

Can you confirm that /home/content/62/8029162/html/EzConference/lib/pkp/classes/core/PKPApplication.inc.php exists and is readable by the web server?

I went ahead and did a reinstall and this problem cleared up. I am thinking a file may have been corrupted during the upload.
