Installing Tutor on CentOS 7 server

    Installing Tutor on CentOS 7 server

    If you are asking for help, provide lots of detail so problems can be reproduced.

    Things to describe:
    Operating system ATutor is installed on - CentOS 7
    ATutor version - 2.2.2
    ATutor theme name -N/A
    PHP version -5.6.29
    MySQL version - 5.7.17
    Webserver & version - Apache 2.4.6

    After following the installation instructions for new installation, I get to the first log-in screen I see the following text:

    [i][ the_follow_errors_occurred ]

    [ AT_ERROR_DB_QUERY ] [/i]

    When I looked at the error_log, it tells me that three tables are missing from the schema:
    * themes
    * language_text
    * courses

    It also says it doesn't like the use of the date() function because the time zone hasn't been set.

    What is odd is that when I go through the installation process, it reports that the three tables were successfully created. But when I go to MySQL they don't exist.

    I have attached a text document with my error log first and then the text showing what tables were created.

    Is the installation process creating the tables, then dropping them?

    Help please!

    See if the answer on StackOverflow helps. There is probably a timezone setting missing, or misset, in php.ini

    For some reason the system seems to be creating and then dropping these tables:
    - admins
    - language_text
    - members
    - courses

    By going through the install sql scripts I was able to go in and separated recreate these tables, which seemed to eliminate the errors, however, there continue to be issues:

    * [Sun Jan 08 17:14:06.152733 2017] [:error] [pid 6136] [client ::1:38442] Incorrect date value: '0000-00-00' for column 'dob' at row 1\nSQL: INSERT INTO AT_members (member_id, login, password, email, website, first_name, second_name, last_name, dob, gender, address, postal, city, province, country, phone, status,preferences, creation_date, language, inbox_notify, private_email, last_login) VALUES (NULL,'PaulW','c7blahblahblah4d','','','Paul','','Wither2','0000-00-00','n', '','','','','', '',3,'', NOW(),'en', 0, 1, '0000-00-00 00:00:00'), referer: http://localhost/ATutor/install/install.php
    * [Sun Jan 08 17:17:49.245195 2017] [:error] [pid 31043] [client ::1:38470] PHP Warning: require(/var/www/html/ATutor/themes/../themes//theme.cfg.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /var/www/html/ATutor/include/ on line 314, referer: http://localhost/ATutor/login.php?submit=%C2%BB+Log-in%21

    I did notice the follow errors when I was creating these tables from your scripts:

    - When creating date fields, it rejected default dates of "0000-00-00" required something like "1950-01-01'
    - When creating timestamp field is required a date after "1970-01-01"

    Adding the tables got me further along, but the system still didn't create an account for me. It did create an administrator's account, however.

    It would then seem like the error is because MySQL is set to strict mode, added in MySQL v5.7+

    We'll make a note of it, and work a fix into the next release.

    In the meantime, disable strict mode as described in the stackoverflow post, and you should be good to go.

    The next release is at least a couple months away.
