SOLVED: Fresh installation - cannot pass "introduction"

Post by Kami-sama » Sat May 26, 2018 3:15 pm

Hello guys!!

I am doing a fresh install of phpBB 3.2.2. Ubuntu 14.04
I have php 7 and MySQL 5

After opening /install/app.php and pressing "Install" button nothing happens:

Image

Errors on console:
install:1 Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 500 (Internal Server Error)
/lt/install/app.php/installer/status:1 Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 500 (Internal Server Error)

Any ideas what could be causing this?
Bare in mind, this is completely fresh install on fresh server. So there might be missing commands/ tools/ packages.

Is this your own server? Because the errors are server errors, not phpBB errors. You need to check the error logs. Server configuration is beyond the scope of the Support forums here.

Yes, I am renting the server.
For example in apache logs looks like it's not finding correct files:
PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function phpbb\\install\\helper\\iohandler\\json_encode() in /var/www/html/phpBB3/phpbb/install/helper/iohandler/ajax_iohandler.php on line 253

As if there is something wrong with the downloaded file or not understanding the function.
Not sure which one is it.


EDIT:
Also tried installing phpBB 3.1
Yet then, even index.php could not open at all.
So weird.
