Installation on Vista/Apache
Well good words there, I'm not gonna argue with you on that.
And as much as I have heard general windows users crib about
Vista's security features, I have heard same amount of praise
by more 'developers' genre of users about its' security features.
Your second suggestion of learning your OS is something I'm
deeply dwelling into everyday since I installed Vista, and is
one strong reason I'm not willing to go back to XP just
because things work in XP. I'm finding the challenges in
Vista intriguing and a learning experience.
Have fun with the KB ;)
I'm not sure which drive names you were referring to, but
coming from a Web Developing background, I certainly pay
utmost attention to naming conventions. 10 years ago I've
been there where simple HTML pages wouldn't pull up due to
Case mismatch, spaces or special characters. I can assure you
in my personal case with this "Cannot load mySQL extension",
folder/file names is not the issue.
Security is a an issue I need to learn & understand further
in regards to Vista and may well be the cause of my problem.
i gave up ages ago.. But happy to hear you want to go further :)
And while I don't find much logic in Richard's solutionNo this is not a solution, it is a "fluke" it just happened to work, but the
world is still not aware of WHY! The eternal all so important question !!
(I.e., copying the DLL), without trying, it would be too
premature to label it logical or illogical - because if it
does work, logic can be scrutinized.
You right i "miss-worded" that (if you do search further the reason it works
will most certainly BE logical),
lets do this again:
Copying a file over into a place that makes something work is not an answer,
an answer is 'the .dll must be placed here for x reasons'. Which i "bet"
will if you go further into the matter be because 'folder x doesnt have the
same permissions as the original folder'.
What i mean is:
The more you search for the reasons, the more you will understand the
workings, the less you will have to fix the problems ;)
All in all, good post there mate, and appreciate you sharing
Thanks, and I sincerely hope you get thing up and running like you need
them, and don't forget to have fun getting their ;)
