Installation Error code: nopermissions

Looks like the installation attempt didn't really complete creating tables ....

Your screen shot showing core plugin installs is short

Missing these tables

| mdl_workshopform_accumulative    |
| mdl_workshopform_comments        |
| mdl_workshopform_numerrors       |
| mdl_workshopform_numerrors_map   |
| mdl_workshopform_rubric          |
| mdl_workshopform_rubric_config   |
| mdl_workshopform_rubric_levels 

which are present in a successfully installed and running 3.5.

The one thing I see in the manual config.php file is
dbport is blank .... db server is sql.karnhack.com
If running MySQL would think the default port for MySQL is 3306
but your setup/provider might have that on something else.

Also, DB servers run faster without looking up clients attempting to access it via DNS.  Many DB admins setup the DB server with skip-networking ... no DNS lookups.  So find out the IP address of sql.karnhack.com ... might be a private IP ...
and use the IP address instead of FQDN.  Might need to check with hosting provider.

A failed lookup in DNS during a process like installation might result in some strange errors/issues.

After replacing the FQDN with IP, also change the prefix to somehing like mdl2_.   This way you do not need to create a new DB.

Then try it again.

Total guess ... don't host where you host and do know not all hosting providers do things the same way!!!! :\

I entered the ip address and the port but it gives me the same error:

//=========================================================================

// 1. DATABASE SETUP

//=========================================================================

// First, you need to configure the database where all Moodle data       //

// will be stored.  This database must already have been created         //

// and a username/password created to access it.                         //


$CFG->dbtype    = 'mysqli';      // 'pgsql', 'mariadb', 'mysqli', 'mssql', 'sqlsrv' or 'oci'

$CFG->dblibrary = 'native';     // 'native' only at the moment

$CFG->dbhost    = '000.00.000.000';  // eg 'localhost' or 'db.isp.com' or IP

$CFG->dbname    = 'namedb';     // database name, eg moodle

$CFG->dbuser    = 'userdb';   // your database username

$CFG->dbpass    = 'passdb';   // your database password

$CFG->prefix    = 'mdl_';       // prefix to use for all table names

$CFG->dboptions = array(

    'dbpersist' => false,       // should persistent database connections be

                                //  used? set to 'false' for the most stable

                                //  setting, 'true' can improve performance

                                //  sometimes

    'dbsocket'  => false,       // should connection via UNIX socket be used?

                                //  if you set it to 'true' or custom path

                                //  here set dbhost to 'localhost',

                                //  (please note mysql is always using socket

                                //  if dbhost is 'localhost' - if you need

                                //  local port connection use '127.0.0.1')

    'dbport'    => '3306',          // the TCP port number to use when connecting

                                //  to the server. keep empty string for the

                                //  default port

    'dbhandlesoptions' => false,// On PostgreSQL poolers like pgbouncer don't

                                // support advanced options on connection.

                                // If you set those in the database then

                                // the advanced settings will not be sent.

    'dbcollation' => 'utf8mb4_unicode_ci', // MySQL has partial and full UTF-8

                                // support. If you wish to use partial UTF-8

                                // (three bytes) then set this option to

                                // 'utf8_unicode_ci', otherwise this option

                                // can be removed for MySQL (by default it will

                                // use 'utf8mb4_unicode_ci'. This option should

                                // be removed for all other databases.

);



//=========================================================================

// 2. WEB SITE LOCATION

//=========================================================================

// Now you need to tell Moodle where it is located. Specify the full

// web address to where moodle has been installed.  If your web site

// is accessible via multiple URLs then choose the most natural one

// that your students would use.  Do not include a trailing slash

//

// If you need both intranet and Internet access please read

// http://docs.moodle.org/en/masquerading


$CFG->wwwroot   = 'http://lab.karnhack.com';



//=========================================================================

// 3. DATA FILES LOCATION

//=========================================================================

// Now you need a place where Moodle can save uploaded files.  This

// directory should be readable AND WRITEABLE by the web server user

// (usually 'nobody' or 'apache'), but it should not be accessible

// directly via the web.

//

// - On hosting systems you might need to make sure that your "group" has

//   no permissions at all, but that "others" have full permissions.

//

// - On Windows systems you might specify something like 'c:\moodledata'


$CFG->dataroot  = '/home/mhd-01/www.karnhack.com//htdocs/moodledata';



//=========================================================================

// 4. DATA FILES PERMISSIONS

//=========================================================================

// The following parameter sets the permissions of new directories

// created by Moodle within the data directory.  The format is in

// octal format (as used by the Unix utility chmod, for example).

// The default is usually OK, but you may want to change it to 0750

// if you are concerned about world-access to the files (you will need

// to make sure the web server process (eg Apache) can access the files.

// NOTE: the prefixed 0 is important, and don't use quotes.


$CFG->directorypermissions = 0777;



//=========================================================================

// 5. DIRECTORY LOCATION  (most people can just ignore this setting)

//=========================================================================

// A very few webhosts use /admin as a special URL for you to access a

// control panel or something.  Unfortunately this conflicts with the

// standard location for the Moodle admin pages.  You can work around this

// by renaming the admin directory in your installation, and putting that

// new name here.  eg "moodleadmin".  This should fix all admin links in Moodle.

// After any change you need to visit your new admin directory

// and purge all caches.


$CFG->admin = 'admin';


.......

.......


require_once(__DIR__ . '/lib/setup.php'); // Do not edit


// There is no php closing tag in this file,

// it is intentional because it prevents trailing whitespace problems!

I managed to install Moodle with your help. The only problem is that it does not seem to have a style... It's normal or something went wrong? Thanks

First, please share how you got around the error you were getting ... others (including myself) would be interested.

And it's ok to admit some omission/boo-boo ... done that so many times that I know more about what not to do than to do the first time. ;)

Congrats!  Pat yourself on your back!

Yes, theme is messed up ... others reporting similar issues .... and there may not be the same fix - factors still involved.

But, that's the default theme ... login, go to themes and select another theme ... there's more and clean if I re-call at the moment ... let's see if the site looks like it should that way.   You will see a button to purge theme cache ... do that for sure.

I would turn on or allow the use of multiple themes ... at category level and at course level ... for now ... until things settle in/down.

Re: Installation Error code: nopermissions
 

Thanks! I have select the "Clean" Theme and now it's ok! big grin
I have solved with Server IP (numeric) and Port as you advised me. But I had to do it as a configurator, eliminating config.php and following the instructions.

Glad to help.   Does help to read and follow instructions, I've found. smile

Still though, that was a very strange error ... not that I've seen all the errors possible, mind ya.

So if you created a 'theme test' category and one course allowed to change themes, and then changed the theme of that course to the 'default' theme, would you get the same error?  Might turn on debugging when you do as suggested ... that's if you have time.   Might be worth reporting.

Re: Installation Error code: nopermissions
 

Give me some time to get familiar with moodle. I am available to make the favor! smile
I have a question. The moodledata folder is safe with chmod 777 and .htacces with

deny from all
AllowOverride None

Thanks

Time to refer to official Moodle docs:
https://docs.moodle.org/35/en/Security_recommendations

Reason for the .htaccess file already in place due to those who host on a service where they cannot put moodledata outside of document root.    In your case, that might be true so leave the .htaccess file.

I created a "themetest" category, a course themetest/coursetematest and i have assigned  it the "boost" theme.

This is "themetest" category:
themetest


coursethemetest with "boost" theme

boost


The debug is active but not work on "boost" theme

First ... https://docs.moodle.org/dev/Themes you'll find User Docs and FAQ's.

Doesn't look like it's rendering like it should so don't use it - anywhere ... until resolved.  Resolution might be in FAQ's.

Am a minimalist when it comes to appearance ... more into function than form.
