Is there anyone here has installed and configured Codestriker on Ubuntu? I'm seeking some help.

I've just installed Codestriker on my server Ubuntu 9.x.

I've run the page: http://myserver_address/codestriker/ on a client machine and got the login page show up.

However, if I try to create a new account, after I put in an email address and hit register I got the following error:

 The webpage at
might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new
web address.
 Error 330 (net::ERR_CONTENT_DECODING_FAILED): Unknown error.

If I go back to the create new account page and type in the same email address I've just used earlier to register it will tell me that:

 User account already exists.

What did I miss in the configuration? How do I fix it now?

Also, in codestriker.conf, I've specified admin email in $admin_users=['']. But I don't know where the password for this admin account is specified. Can someone explain please?

I figured out the problem was some setting of compression option in configuration file. By turning off compression, the problem is solved.

  $use_compression = 0;
