Well done. On my test VM, extracting the file, the permissions weren't set so I had to set everything to 644/777,
It's strange that Wedge can't do these by itself. I didn't think there'd be so many setups that don't give the PHP user any folder rights.

afterwards I then experienced issues with the wedge installer being "unthemed" (like in Norodo's pic), managed to get that installed anyway. Then I browsed to my profile to fix the theme problem. Going to admin, I get many file writing related problem, this all points to /gz/keys/ directory, I then fixed that directory to be writable.
That folder was added to the writable list a few hours before you posted. Did you install from an 'early' release? Because many install bugs were fixed after that... (I think.)

Now for my test-remote server that is not hosted on my computer (Free hosting service.) Uploading to my webhost, installing, no problems, it installed flawlessly. No theme problems too. This hosts uses:
Or maybe it's a problem with PHP 5.4 or MySQL 5.5, but I doubt it. Perhaps I'll give Xampp another try though.

Hmm... I guess it's because of the BIT(1) element.

Open install.sql, and replace all occurrences of bit(1) with tinyint(1) -- that should help.

I don't get why it doesn't work, though. The official MySQL website does say that it was introduced in v5.0.3, which is the minimum version Wedge will accept.
Perhaps an incompatibility in the install.php file, I don't know... Will look into it.

Great movie, BTW.
Seems you hit a bug in MySQL :)
Read somtimes about problems with unsigned BIT.

Did a clean install of Wedge Alpha on my Xampp running MySQL 5.0 and PHP 5.5, worked fine. I don't think MySQL 5.5 would be related to these problems, so it must be some kind of OS setting out there.

Pandos, do you mean you think BIT should be avoided? From what I could see, there are no bugs in the current implementation (except of course for the initial scare over unsigned bits), and the worst it can do is truncate results to 0 and 1. All I can do right now is just stick to bits when I'm sure I'll only be using a boolean value, because I think it's slightly misleading and lazy programming to add a 'is_something' column, with values 0 and 1, and then decide that you want to add value 2 to represent something else, closely related but not directly. Sure.

PHP 5.4 & MySQL 5.5 works fine too.

Dunno if it's worth the hassle.
Just use BIT where it's useful. And that's what you've done.
The only thing is that BIT column doesn't play nice with indexes. But at this time no problem here.
We just must keep in mind that BIT columns never ever should be unsigned.

I unchosed 'allow members to chose their own theme' in  Manage and Install under Themes and Layouts and it broke the css.

I also noticed this happens to logged in members, guest does not experience the css break.

 :edit: Not really logged in members, only break when I logged in as the admin!

I have now removed the root .htaccess and... Still getting 500s for the CSS.

I also get 'weUrl' is undefined in my error log.

Code: [Select]
Uncaught ReferenceError: weUrl is not defined index.php?action=skin;u=1:245

weUrl is part of script.js, so if your .gz files all generate an error 500, it's no wonder JavaScript will never initialize.

I guess I'll need access to your FTP, so that I can see what's wrong with your server.

The part to the theme in the theme settings is wrong, it says website.com/Theme; this is not a correct part.

Ubuntu 12.04, PHP 5.3.10, MySQL 5.5.32, apart from the bit(1) problem in the database, its working fine.
