    found a fix
    on the suggested “generated” halalan.php configuration, there will be a problem on the base_url

    it should be
    $config['base_url'] = “/halalan/”;

    and not
    $config['base_url'] = “http://localhost/halalan/”;

    As stated in CodeIgniter’s config.php,

    /*
    |————————————————————————–
    | Base Site URL
    |————————————————————————–
    |
    | URL to your CodeIgniter root. Typically this will be your base URL,
    | WITH a trailing slash:
    |
    | http://www.your-site.com/
    |
    */
    $config['base_url'] = “http://127.0.0.1/CodeIgniter/”;

    Your fix might work in some cases but not all. The recommended value here is http or https, then localhost or the IP address, then the path to the installed Halalan.

    ok great.

    but, I think we will use the previous version first, we did not encounter problems there.

    NOTE:
    I can’t upload files, like images, CSV of voters, folders unwrittable, what’s the hack for it?

    i found the fix at the project’s wiki, and used it.

    btw, i would like to inform you that the “La Verdad Christian College” (Apalit, Pampanga) —a free college— used your software in its student gov org election today, and they really appreciate your team’s efforts

    keep it up

    God bless and Thanks be to God!

    ;)

    when I Add Election Details I get this error on the page:

    A Database Error Occurred
    Error Number: 1364
    Field ‘status’ doesn’t have a default value
    INSERT INTO `elections` (`election`, `parent_id`) VALUES (‘Election 2011′, ’0′)

    how to fix this error?

    Try running these SQL statements in MySQL prompt or phpMyAdmin:

    ALTER TABLE `elections` CHANGE `status` `status` TINYINT( 1 ) NOT NULL DEFAULT ’0′
    ALTER TABLE `elections` CHANGE `results` `results` TINYINT( 1 ) NOT NULL DEFAULT ’0′

    By the way, may I know the version of your MySQL? Thanks.
