PHP & MySQL Versions

Below are the version numbers of the PHP interpreter and the MySQL server on your webhost. When reporting problems on the Nucleus Support Forum, please include this information.

MySQL Login Data

Enter your MySQL data below. This install script needs it to be able to create and fill your database tables. Afterwards, you'll also need to fill it out in config.php.

If you don't know this information, contact your system administrator for more info. Often, the hostname will be 'localhost'. If Nucleus found a 'default MySQL host' in the PHP settings of your server, this host is already listed in the 'hostname' field. There's no guarantee that this information is correct, though.

General Database Settings
Advanced Database Settings

Unless you're installing multiple Nucleus installations in one single database and know what you're doing, you really shouldn't change this.

All database tables generated by Nucleus will start with this prefix.

Directories and URLs

This install script has attempted to find out the directories and URLs in which Nucleus is installed. Please check the values below and correct if necessary. The URLs and file paths should end with a slash.

(absolute location of the action.php file)

Note: Use absolute paths instead of relative paths. Usually, an absolute path will start with something like /home/username/public_html/. On Unix systems (most servers), paths should start with a slash. If you have trouble filling out this information, you should ask your administrator what to fill out.
