    Installation is easy at all, do you get any error message or something like that? Do you run on free or paid hosting?

    Did you first create the database and give the proper permissions to the "username" you are trying to log in with?

    yes, database was created with user given full permissions. Yes I pay for monthly hosting. Yes This is going to be a big site, as each military base will have their own access to this site.

    OK, tell us what you mean when you say you "can't get the script to install". What is happening? Error messages?
    So far we know that you created the database and gave full permission. I assume you have put the Webid files on your server. What happens when you open a browser and go to "yourURL/Webid/install/install.php"?

    No need to email. I sent you a private message. Click the "Notifications" link in the upper right portion of your screen.

    login to your cpanel and go to MySQL® Database Wizard and make a new Database and make sure you remember that info you used to make the database because it will be used to install webid.

    Install Steps:
    1. Login to cpanel
    2. cpanel > MySQL® Database Wizard (remember this info that you used in this step)
    3. FTP to your server
    4. Upload the webid script to your server
    5. http: // your domain name here/install/install.php OR http: // your domain name here/webid/install/install.php
    6. Fill in the info it asks for and the database info that you used when you made the database
    7. If the install was complete then delete the install folder that is on your server
    8. Make a new admin user
    9. You are now finished

    Make sure you read every thing that is in the webid install steps.

    Hey guys, tell him to add https://www.softaculous.com/ to his cpan for scripts. Once you give it root and sql admin it will do the work for him. He is working with a niks box I am sure. Free License are license(s) issued for free. The features of a Free are as following:

    Free License
    One License per server
    Free Softaculous Upgrades
    Free Scripts Upgrades
    Support related to Softaculous via the Support Forums
    59 scripts are included
    No renewal is required. It can be upgraded to Premium License anytime
    Here is a demo http://demo.softaculous.com/enduser/
    Do not know if this helps him but he should also look into cloud flare to stop his server from getting a pounding buy the Ru and Af guys right now. They are bot crazy right now. So his server load will be hi for requests. I would say if it is not a google crawler with a cert from google ban it. If he is running if any bb press or wd press then he will need other installs to stop bots right now. Also tell him to try MySQL Workbench. But it is only for the big 5 distro and not minor nik distro. You can see the major distro's here http://distrowatch.com/ and try some new fun one's that will help you learn. hope this help him some. Servers I can do...Php is uhhhhhh still in the learning box for me....:)
