Installation Help

After a long struggle I have managed to get to the page that says Setup and Get Help.
I had to modify the .htaccess file and it is as follows

# Remove index.php
RewriteEngine on
RewriteBase /InvoicePlane
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule . index.php [L]
now the url: http://localhost/invoiceplane/welcome give me

Please install InvoicePlane.
Bitte installiere InvoicePlane.
S’il vous plaît installer InvoicePlane
Por favor, instale InvoicePlane
Setup Get Help

but when I click on Setup the url is http://localhost:8888/setup
and page displays

Not Found

The requested URL /setup was not found on this server.
where am I going wrong… can anyone help…


Try to access

And please post here what is the outcome.



It worked and I can go past that screen to database setup. But here I have a problem again . It would not authenticate the user

My host name is localhost
username is invoice
password is invoice
databasename is invoice

I keep getting message “Failure Cannot connect to the database server”

Please help. I think we should write a complete installation guide. I will try doing that as I install.

Are you sure the database details are correct?

Are you sure that the database is on the same server ?
Are the database credentials correct ?
Does the database usere have the right permissions on the database ?

Yes I’m sure, I have installed on my MAC. So DB name is localhost and I have created this user “invoice” and gave full access to the DB. Kind of a simple configuration not sure where I’m making a mistake if at all I’m.
Will keep trying later today and will update.

Can u check the firewall of the Mac ?

For testing you can try to connect ssh to localhost on port 3306. If you get a connection failed then it probblably a firewall rule. If you get a blank screen it normaly means the port is open.

guys, firewall is okay. I somehow managed to setup and continue with the installation, not sure what happened. i’m going to uninstall and do it all over again and this time will make sure i document the steps and make an installation manual.
So far looks good.

Good to hear.

Credentials for Username, Password and Database are correct but the same problem…

Question: is Hostname is the same as the URL where InvoicePlane was uploaded?

eg: = hostname
