Part of the installation process is to rename qa-config-example.php to qa-config.php, so please make sure you performed that step.
Thanks for your response.

I have inserted the following code  in - index.php (under the main "qa" folder)

define('QA_BASE_DIR', dirname(empty($_SERVER['SCRIPT_FILENAME']) ? __FILE__ : $_SERVER['SCRIPT_FILENAME']).'/');

and I removed it from - qa-index.php file.

Now I get a Welcome Screen - "Welcome to Question2Answer. It's time to set up your database!.................."
There is a button which says  - "Create Database including User Management". As soon as I click on this button - There is a Error message  - "Not Found - The requested document was not found on this server. "

The path in the Browser is as follows:


So it seems that its looking for an "install" file in index.php directory.

Please help
OK, this is a different problem. It seems that your web server is not allowing a trick that Q2A uses, which is to have a path after index.php even though index.php is not a directory. I will need to check into this...

Thanks for your response. I would highly appreciate if you can let me know how to fix this problem

hi, I am still waiting for a fix to the above problem.

Please can you let me know if there is a reolution for this problem.

I will need to address this properly in a future version, but in the meantime, here is a possible workaround:

1. In the function qa_path() in qa-base.php, replace the line:


... with ...


2. Later in that same function, remove this line:

    .( ($neaturls || empty($request)) ? $request : ('index.php/'.$request) )

3. In qa-index.php, insert the following code:

    if (isset($_GET['qa'])) {
        $qa_request_parts=explode('/', $_GET['qa']);

... before ...

    $qa_request=implode('/', $qa_request_parts);

That should do it, but please let me know if it works for you, after testing out all the different functions on your site.
