    The WordPress auto-installer has stopped working on all our web servers. Is anyone else also experiencing problems with the WordPress auto-installer?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    When you do a WordPress install and go to admin it, you are told it hasn't been installed and offered a link. When you click on the link you get messages like:

    Warning: main(/home/username/public_html/wordpress/wp-includes/pluggable-functions.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/yourinfo/public_html/wordpress/wp-settings.php on line 141

    and indeed there is no such file. It appears that the current distro is missing a file, and possiblly some install steps.

    Go on, have a guess
    Have any of you logged this through bugzilla and/or a ticket? If not, then you should to bring it to cPanel's attention if this is through their addon script offerings.

    Considering no-one has bothered to contribute to the bugzilla entry or voted for it (it is 0 votes), it's probably at the bottom of the list. How many of you have also logged tickets for the issue through your license provider with cPanel?

    I resolved this by simply downloading the missing file (or entire dir to be safe).

    I sent in a ticket, shouldn't be too hard to fix this, just a file missing from the installation.

    This should be fixed asap.


    I've got error for WikiPHP too when I go auto install...


    I don't see the point of auto installers if they do not work.

    Same problem here because I am unable to recompile apache with modules needed for php.

    I'd be interested in knowing if any of you are able to add or remove modules with easyapache too, bet it's related.

    I've just given up on the Wordpress autoinstaller. Sometime it works... After a Cpanel update it does not. Sometime uninstall and reinstall works... Sometime it does not.

    This Thread just seemed to end without a solution or fix...

    Same problem every time...

    "It doesn't look like you've installed WP yet. Try running install.php."

    Warning: main(/home/blai/public_html/wps/wp-includes/pluggable-functions.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/blai/public_html/wps/wp-settings.php on line 141

    Warning: main(/home/blai/public_html/wps/wp-includes/pluggable-functions.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/blai/public_html/wps/wp-settings.php on line 141

    Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required '/home/blai/public_html/wps/wp-includes/pluggable-functions.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/blai/public_html/wps/wp-settings.php on line 141

    It's also missing an image from wp-images

    wp-images/get-firefox.png


    Not drastically important.

    It doesn't set up the admin user either. You have to immediately do that yourself after the install.

    The OpenInstaller install installs the latest v2.0 whereas the cPanel version is still at v1.5.

    Is OpenInstaller going to be officially sanctioned by cPanel? I don't want to stick in a manual process over an automated one, even if it's occasionally a buggy automated one.

    OI modules are included in cPanel from time to time. You can use the updateoi script to automatically update to the latest available OI version/build.

    Hello... So if I have the cpanel 1.5 version of WordPress and wanted to set up WordPress version 2 in the auto installer I could:

    cd /usr/local/cpanel/addons
    wget http://www.openinstaller.com/distfiles/WordPress/WordPress.tar.bz2
    tar -jxf WordPress.tar.bz2
    rm WordPress.tar.bz2

    and then have 2.0 available for auto install?

    Thanks

    Provided upcp won't overwrite it on update you could:

    cd /usr/local/cpanel/addons/
    rm -rf WordPress/
    wget http://www.openinstaller.com/distfiles/WordPress/WordPress.tar.bz2
    tar -jxf WordPress.tar.bz2
    rm WordPress.tar.bz2

    and have it to install.

    That's the issue though. Would upcp overwrite the 2.0 installer with the old 1.5 installer when it's ran or does it know not to update the later version?

    If it doesn't, openinstaller isn't very useful for those of us that use upcp.
