Mantis 1.1.5 installation failed

Post by siagianfaber »

Dear All,

I'm trying to install Mantis 1.1.5 in my CentOS. But it is fail.
There's no error, just a white page when I try to access http://localhost/mantisbt-1.1.5.
I have installed PHP 5 and MySQL, and both of them work.
I have configure the config_inc.php, too. I have set the database username and password.

Is there any installation step that I missed? Or would someone give a installation tutorial for me...
One more question, the database 'bugtracker', who will create it? Automatically by Mantis or manually by me?

Please help.

It's a bug that was marked fixed but is not. You need to disable html compression. There are two ways I know of to do this in version 2.24.0, the one that I tested is this:

Comment out lines 239 and 240 of /core.php

Code: Select all

# Start HTML compression handler (if enabled)
//require_api( 'compress_api.php' );
The second way is to disable compression using a flag, but I don't know where it is located.
