Iím having issues getting the gallery to work on my site and I hope someone here can help me.
I loaded a fresh version of SMF 1.1.2 on my site through my fantastico
When I went to my admin page I found a blank page that said:
Unknown system variable 'NAMES'
I contacted my host and was told
This is actually an issue with the newer versions of SMF. In order to correct this, please find the following line at the bottom of your Settings.php file:
$db_character_set = 'utf8';
and comment it out so it appears as follows:
//$db_character_set = 'utf8'
Which I did and my site worked fine. The first mod I tried to install was the Gallery .
This is a screenshot of the SMF install page http://home.comcast.net/~ph4ever/installgallery1.jpg
and this is a screenshot of the page I get when I redirect after mod installation. http://home.comcast.net/~ph4ever/redirect.jpg
I'm attaching a text file of the error log that was generated. I did blank out my forum addy as I maintain a site for people with health issues and I did this to protect my members.
Any help that you can give me will be so greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
