Fresh Installation Joomla 3.8.8 - Blank Page With "Error"

Post by angadarora » Thu Jun 14, 2018 2:17 pm

Hey Guys

I am new to Joomla, used to work on Opencart but wanted to expand :D. Anyway i have a AWS EC2 setup with PHP 7.2.5. I am unable to make the installation index.php work, i mean there are no errors in Apache/Php error Logs, no errors are reported on screen. Hope someone can help me out.

My Php info File : http://www.max-nidhi.com/phpinfo.php
My Installation Directory: http://www.max-nidhi.com

Do let me know if i need to provide any further information.

Cheers

You have not removed your 'installation" folder (http://www.max-nidhi.com/installation/index.php). Remove this folder and the problem is gone

Also change the permissions for the logs folder to '755' and change Max. Upload Size: 2M | Max. POST Size: 8M to at least Max. Upload Size: 32M | Max. POST Size: 48M. With 2Mb set you won't be able to install components or upgrade Joomla.

Hey Leo

The thing is i have not installed joomla yet, there are no configuration files, if i delete the installation folder i think i will have to create the Db tables and other things manually?, you can check http://www.max-nidhi.com/fpa-en.php as well

Seems the FPA file was removed.....but I get a 404 screen (file not found) and it is a Wordpress 404 page so it seems you still have a wordpress site installed. You can't install Joomla in the same directory (that would create more problems)

You need to start with a blank folder with nothing in it (so remove the WP site....) then install Joomla.

Hey

So sorry for this, but after hitting alot of roadblocks with Joomla i decided to change the CMS, And but i was able to narrow down my problem to one of the following factors Either Amazon Linux 2, Php 7.2, Apache 2 or a combination of these together was causing a problem, since when i changed my OS to Amazon Linux 1 and php 5.6 it worked just fine.

Anyway thanks for your help :).
