I have been struggling to get my initial install to work. All seemingly went well with the instal. I am sure it must be a very basic setting I have wrong.
When trying the Wordpress dashboard link to CiviCRM panel, I got a base_dir problem where I applied the recommended "fix" of adding a line to CiviCRM setting to force directory to my base wordpress instal. This progressed me a little further.
After that, now receiving ... Fatal error: Uncaught CiviCRM_API3_Exception: [unknown error: DB Error: unknown error thrown in /home/…/wp-content/plugins/civicrm/civicrm/api/api.php on line 45
Thinking of abandoning CiviCRM as a Wordpress option for my needs. The install seems to be problematic.
However, if anyone is willing and has the time to work with me to resolve the issues, I am really keen to use the product and willing to give it a good crack :)
