My b2evolution Version: Not Entered


I have Xampp and would like to use it. I use it for my website. I figured with some of the problems that I've been having I can use the local server as a tester before uploading live.

I've tried to install b2evo using the script and have myPHPAdmin open. For some reason the install script doesn't work. When I press the button to finish it doesn't do anything. Shouldn't virtual hosting through Xampp still work, no matter what?

Thank you.... I'll look into it... I was trying to avoid loading another software program. :(

This is what has been happening.

What does 'schema version' 9700 mean on local server?

I have xampp and trying to install the blog on my computer. I got through the first step in the installation script, but then I get the following messages to continue:

Your configuration file [C:/Documents.....blogs/conf/_basic_config.php] has been successfully updated.
How do you want to install b2evolution?
The installation can be done in different ways. Choose one:
New Install: Install b2evolution database tables.

When I hit New Install to continue, I get one the following message:

Additional information about this error:
MySQL error!
Your query:


This is b2evolution version 2.4.1.
You cannot use the application before you finish configuration and installation.
Database schema is not up to date!
You have schema version «0», but we would need «9700».
Please use the installer to finish your configuration/installation now.

How can I get past this so that I can finish the installation for the MySql database?

looks like MySql is not started (the program is not active). I don't know how to start it in Windows.

Good luck

Okay, I'll look into it, but it should be active in the Control Panel. If MySql wasn't active, wouldn't that mean myPHPadmin wouldn't work? That program does work fine.

Using phpmyadmin, are you able to see b2evolution database on your mysql ?

No, I see no database -- I believe this is what the next step was suppose to be.

Then, create an empty database and use that name in b2evolution configuration screen.

I had tried that before I made the post. The basic config file is fine, but is there another file that needs to be tweaked to get me past this point?

Thanks for your input.

To create the b2evolution database use phpmyadmin and in SQL box issu the command:


Then in config file you should have

$db_config = array(
	'user'     => 'root',     // your MySQL username
	'password' => '',     // ...and password
	'name'     => 'b2evo',  // the name of the database
	'host'     => 'localhost',    // MySQL Server (typically 'localhost')

Right. I had completed that process and it brought to the next step, which is posted above. This is where I'm stuck.

Hi Afwas:

Yes I did... I tried AGAIN but this time with the debugger on, and b2evo indicated that MySql needs "traditional" in order to set-up. However, MySql/phpmyadmin wouldn't take "traditional" because a table wasn't available.

I was wondering is it possible to import the tables into phpmyadmin as a database set-up?

didnt read the whole thread; assuming you are insisting using xamp, why dont you try another ? wamp or appserv ?

@tosca could you enable debug mode in _advanced.php:
$debug = 1;
Then, could you give us the exact error message you have ?

Which version of mysql is included in xampp ?
Are you using php 4.x ? or php 5.x ?
