Database creation PHP error trying to find git.
« on: 2015-04-21, 10:06:02 am »
I am trying to run the database setup portion of the install site (next step after validation) and when I hit submit I get the following error (saved and linked to pastebin):

I don't believe this is directly related to nZEDb but I don't know where else to turn for help.  I am hoping someone has seen this before.  My configuration may not be the norm since I have cygwin installed as well.  I use it for ssh and cron as well as a few other things.  I did follow the install guide for nZEDb and installed gnuwin32 (not 64) and have the path set correctly.  I even have the gnuwin32 stuff first in my PATH before the cygwin stuff.  When in cmd.exe, I can do "which git" and it shows me the proper path as C:\Git\cmd\git.exe. 

What I do know is that the error "the system cannot find the path specified" is happening because for some reason it is trying to use the /cygdrive/c/Git path from the cygwin bash shell instead of the C:\Git path and the /cygdrive stuff isn't accessible from a cmd shell.  What I can't figure out is where the heck it is getting that from.  I have done a recursive grep through every file in the C:\xampp directory and nothing is defining that.  I have done a full registry search as well.  I don't know if it is PHP or Apache that is doing this or some other subsystem.

If anyone has seen this before or has ideas as to where this is happening, your help would be immensely appreciated.
