'error' on blank page after installation

Post by dxvictor49 » Mon Jan 13, 2020 8:56 pm

I too am just getting a single word "Error" on a blank page. (It is baffling that anyone would consider this appropriate)

I have enabled everything I can find in php.ini that even looks vaguely related. There is no way to no what else is missing.

Your list of required extensions: xml | zip | curl | iconv | mbstring | mysqli | pdo_mysql |

** Beyond what is listed below - I am lost in understanding what is is missing **

The only extension with "xml" in is this:
extension=xmlrpc

There is no extension I can find referencing "zip"

"curl" is enabled:
extension=curl

The only thing referencing "iconv" is this:
[iconv]
; Use of this INI entry is deprecated, use global input_encoding instead.
; If empty, default_charset or input_encoding or iconv.input_encoding is used.
; The precedence is: default_charset < intput_encoding < iconv.input_encoding
;iconv.input_encoding =

; Use of this INI entry is deprecated, use global internal_encoding instead.
; If empty, default_charset or internal_encoding or iconv.internal_encoding is used.
; The precedence is: default_charset < internal_encoding < iconv.internal_encoding
;iconv.internal_encoding =

; Use of this INI entry is deprecated, use global output_encoding instead.
; If empty, default_charset or output_encoding or iconv.output_encoding is used.
; The precedence is: default_charset < output_encoding < iconv.output_encoding
; To use an output encoding conversion, iconv's output handler must be set
; otherwise output encoding conversion cannot be performed.
;iconv.output_encoding =

"mbstring" is enabled:
extension=mbstring

"mysqli" is enabled:
extension=mysqli

"pdo_mysql" is enabled:
extension=pdo_mysql

Your PHP configuration does not have database support and other required modules may be missing, too. Are you sure you are looking at the right php.ini file?

Please post the results of the Forum Post Assistant (FPA) by following the instructions from https://forumpostassistant.github.io/docs/, as requested in the red banner at the top. If your workstation runs Windows 10, read the notice about Windows Defender, too.
