I followed all instructions to install GPEasy.But while installation,the checkings of the server is all correct and passed.

But i get a error message "could not save pages.php" and the installation stops.

I couldn't tell you exactly what is happening, but it appears there's something about your server that is incompatible with gpEasy. The message that pages.php couldn't be saved is a result of gpEasy's inability to use the fopen() and/or fwrite() functions in php.

If you'd like to dig further, you could turn debugging on then go through the installation again. If you do decide to dig deeper, I'd be happy to help you out and try to get to the bottom of the problem.

Sorry for the trouble

I'm getting the same problem as this. Safe mode is off, it found PHP 5.2.6  and everything says "passed".

I've changed that debugging setting mentioned above, and it is a permissions error. Unfortunately, I'm not sure what I need to change here as it is a Windows/IIS server so I'm not sure the chmod stuff applies? It is a shared hosting account using Plesk.

It's a shame because this does look like a great CMS.

Ah, ok, I got around that by messing about with the permissions on the data folder. It is very confusing on Plesk compared to a normal Linux system!

I am still getting 4 warnings related to fopen (looks like it is trying to open an htaccess file), chmod, and ulink functions called in install_tools.php and remoteget.php, but I think this is a windows/iis/plesk issue and my lack of expertise rather than a GPEasy issue.

I don't think I'll be able to get this working in any secure way, so I'll just revist if I move back to Linux/Apache in future.

Does look cool though, so good work!

I have the same problem. While installation the checking of the server is passed, but I get the message "Could not save pages.php". The screenshot is here. It's not isolated case, and if everything is passed, so maybe is it bug of the CMS, isn't it? If it's a server problem, the server checking could not be passed... 

I've tried to turn debugging on, but there's not such line //define('gpdebug',true); in the index.php file. I've added the line, but it didn't help.

Any suggestion, that's the problem?

Though not exactly the same, this does sound like a bug that was worked on and fixed recently: bug report

Are you on a Windows machine or Linux/Unix?

so maybe is it bug of the CMS, isn't it? If it's a server problem, the server checking could not be passed...

That's what I would think too.

gpEasy uses php's is_writable() function to determine if the /data directory is writable. If that returns true, then the check passes and gpEasy is allowed to attempt to write to the directory using php's fopen() and fwrite() functions. If those fail to write files to the /data directory, then the installation stops (as you're seeing).

The reason I ask if you're using a Windows machine is that php does not always return accurately for the is_writable() function. We're attempting to address this problem in php with the fix in the above bug report.

It was Linux server. Now I change it to another Linux hosting and install was successful. There's something strange. :-|

But now there's another problem. I can't log in. Every link is with "index.php" part in it. For example, link for log in is "".

If I'm trying to open such link, I get blank page with inscription "No input file specified". I remove this part manually and the link works, I see login form. But when I click login button, I get another page with "index.php" part in link and blank page.

So I can't log in and use my website.

Your server probably doesn't support mod_env so gpEasy doesn't see that you have the .htaccess code to get rid of index.php. You can tell gpEasy to use links without index.php by modifying your configuration file: See the section describing define('gp_indexphp',false);
