[quote]also when cron runs I get these errors: (so something is still not right)
/core/include/locale_manager.inc:504) - Asset Type "root_user" is not installed on this system [SYS0091]
/core/include/locale_manager.inc:504) - Unable to get Root User [CRON0023][/quote]
This is a major issue and a similar message should appear while running the installation scripts. Unfortunately not much can be done with a system in this state. It is recommended to start the installation process again with a fresh database and filesystem with the relevant configuration in place, taking note of any errors that may be present at each step.
[quote]Ok i managed to get to the end of the install process without any errors in the log file except the classic error that appears when you try and browse to the website the first time.
[ASSERT EXCEPTION] Asset "session_handler_default" is not installed on the system, unable to include its source file [SYS0320][/quote]
Similar to the missing "Root User", a message similar to this should be shown whilst installing. Please verify that the following directories are still on the filesystem and contain source files. I realise this was verified previously but things may have changed since then…
