    The box to self register and login don't open.
    config.php:
    $USE_REGISTRATION_MODULE=true; //- turn on the user self registration module
    $REQUIRE_ADMIN_AUTH_REGISTRATION=false; //- require an admin user to authorize
    Whats the problem? Any ideas?
    Regards

    Probably your browser is configured to not open popup windows.

    You should not be running with "Admin approval not required".  To do so is to invite hackers to flood your site with userids.  Who knows what will happen then!

    Arne:
    Please e-mail me with the URL to your PGV installation, so that I can try this myself.

    I'll give you the URL to my site, so that you can see how it's supposed to work.

    You have not said:
    1) What version. At the least, it should be v4.0 (SVN)
    2) What support systems? PHP, MySQL

    HOWEVER,
    Have you added a GEDCOM ? You may not register anyone to an empty tree.

    Version 4.2.4 changes
    PHP version 5.3.13
    And indeed i didn't try to register after i added a gedcom file. The registration now works. Thank you.
    Would have been nice to know though LOL

    Its in the WIKI. Not sure what you would be able to do before you have a functioning site, and a site isn't functioning until it has a gedcom to display ;-))   Glad its OK now.  DO NOT USE 4.2.4. You will have problems with PHP 4.3.
    You need to install v4.3 or switch to webtrees.

    Since this is a new installation, you should really consider using Webtrees.  As has been noted many times in the past, Webtrees is under active development, while PhpGedView has been stagnant for about 3 years.

    Webtrees was cloned from PhpGedView about 3 years ago, and all the developers have moved there.
