Good $time_of_day, everyone. Past versions of Tiki have unpacked and installed okay, but this time something's up. And I admit it seems to be mostly on my end. However...
I'm on an old MacBook Pro, using Apple Server (DON'T JUDGE ME ) and I have a few other things running okay, like that install of DokuWiki, Drupal, Joomla, and a skosh of Wordpress. I wanted a copy of Tiki local so I could skin it for a friend.
I can specify a local URL (http://suchandso.local/tiki) for most things, but many of the links in Tiki try loading from a different port (http://suchandso.local:34580/tiki/tiki_cmdfile.php), and it fails to do so. Regularly and consistently.
34580 is a port specified in some of the Apple Server's files, and Tiki is drawn to it like a moth to a 404 error. No other apps I have on here have that proclivity.
There is a preference within Tiki 14 (the version I'm using, by the way) that allows you to specify the ports for non-secured and SSL connections. And yes, I could put an 80 in the non-secured box and hit Apply. And when the page reloads, there's the 34580 in the http_port box again. No amount of typing changes that setting.
Yes, I blame Server for the non-standard port. But Tiki is doing something weird here too, so I'm hoping someone has seen this behavior and knows what to make of it.
