Installing Tiki on 1&1 

This is to note things that deviate from the regular installation instructions.

http://1and1.com/

WebspaceExplorer 

1and1 has a nice tool which lets you unzip the files on the server. This is much faster than uploading all the files.

So when you download Tiki, get the .zip version

unzip on server via WebspaceExplorer can take 30-40 seconds

Make sure you have PHP5 

You may get something like this:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting '{' in tiki-install.php on line 48


By default, it's still PHP Version 4.4.9 as of 2010-11-06
http://faq.1and1.com/scripting_languages_supported/php/5.html

With the proper .htaccess, it becomes 5.2.6

This will change over time (and perhaps from server to server but at the time of writing)
phpMyAdmin is 2.6.4
MySQL: 5.0.91

Database is not localhost 

This is not uncommon. When you are in tiki-install.php, make sure to replace localhost with the value provided by 1and1

File uploads 

With default configuration, file uploads are broken. ref: Understanding Encoding

You can solve by
1- using 5.4 or 6.0
2- apply this patch:
http://tikiwiki.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/tikiwiki?view=revision&revision=30000
3- use adodb, instead of pdo as per http://tiki.org/ReleaseNotes5.0#Database_Encoding_Issues

thing to check
  • Performance & what are differences of various plans

Error 500 

I solved them with this instruction "RewriteBase /" after the "RewriteEngine On" in the .htaccess:

(...)

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On

RewriteBase   /

(...)
