Installing FireStats on SourceForge is a bit tricky due to SourceForge strict security.
Configure FireStats database
You will need to create the php/fs-config.php manually. Create the file with this content, and edit to match your settings (obtain the actual values from sourceforge):
<?php $fs_config['DB_NAME']='a12345_firestats'; $fs_config['DB_PREFIX']=''; $fs_config['DB_USER']='DB_ADMIN_USER'; #like a12345admin $fs_config['DB_PASS']='YOUR_PASSWORD'; $fs_config['DB_HOST']='DB HOST'; #like mysql4-a $GLOBALS['fs_config'] = $fs_config; ?>
Configure sessions directory
Additionally you will need to configure FireStats to work with a special sessions directory manually: Create a directory under /tmp/persistent, name it after your project:
If you don't already have a file named conf.php, copy sample-conf.php to conf.php (FireStats does not come with a conf.php file).
Add the following line to your conf.php file.
