installed LuxCal on XAMPP on a Mac but nothing appears.  The screen is blank.  Set up the database, added the config.php file, but then pressed the start button and nothing appears.

Hi Erik,

This must have something to do with your local settings, like file permissions, PHP settings, etc.

The new LuxCal version 2.6.0 - which is planned to be released at the end of this week - has a tool which can check your configuration and see if all is ready for LuxCal 2.6 to run.
The tool is made for LuxCal 2.6. If you want to experiment, I can send you a LuxCal 2.6.0-beta version, but then I need your email address.

I have installed 2.6.0 to my server, but when I try to access it, all it displays is a "0" in the upper left corner. I've run the install script and everything looked good, DB created, etc.

This appears to have to do with the date_default_timezone_set function in the index.php file.

Hi there,
Are you sure you are running PHP 5.1 or higher on your server?
Earlier PHP versions don't support the date_default_timezone_set function and some other functions used by the calendar and consequently will not work.

Thanks, that was the problem. I'll have to work with my sysdamin to update.
