    Hi,

    I am getting error " The installation can not be completed:You cannot install more than one script in the root directory of a domain." on installing post nuke on my root directory. I rechecked it and I am sure that I didn't istall any script on root directory. I was able to install it successfully to my addon domains. Can anyone please help me on this:)

    I assume you are talking about Fantastico installation.
    Since your addon domain has in fact a corresponding folder in the root of the main domain, try to install PostNuke into that folder ?

    Another option would be to install it manually (very simple to do).

    postnuke installation error

    Thanks for your response.
    Yes.. I am trying Fantastico installation. So what procedure should I follow to get postnuke installed in my main domain (public_html) and other two subdirectories?

    Install it by hand.
    Upload the zip file to somewhere outside the public_html directory. (preferably in a folder of its own)
    Go to file manager in cPanel and nav to the file and unpack it.
    Go back in via FTP and cut the files from there and move to the directory you want it to be in.
    Create the new user, password then database for it, and write that all down.
    chmod the config.php and config.old.php to 666
    Open your browser and type in the URL to run the pn installer.

    Fantastrico just updated postnuke and then the postnuke developers found some holes so they released a newer version. http://news.postnuke.com/Article2728.html
    Fantastico is not offering that one yet so it's not really worth installing it from there unless you're going to apply the patches after.

    You might want to download postnuke from its site and read the docs. Should help a little.

    Dear Anto,

    When Fantastico tells you it can't install something into root it means either you've installed something in public_html before or that there is already a directory or file in public_html that is named the same as one of the necessary files or directories of the script that Fantastico is trying to install.

    If you've installed a script into public_html previously using Fantastico and manually removed it, then Fantastico won't know you removed it. However, you can go into /home/CPUSERNAME/.fantasticodata and see if there are any files with "root" in the name there. If so, remove it and try installing again.

    If that doesn't work then you have something installed in public_html (FrontPage Extensions, perhaps?)

    Hope this will fix your problem. :)
