Hi all..
I have a clean installation of the latest version of joomla, joomla 3.9, in ubuntu 18.04. Already check all the prerequisites as follows this post
https://docs.joomla.org/J3.x:Installing ... tion_Check
Everything is going very well until the last step, when I delete the installation folder, the message of congratulations comes out that you can now access joomla.
But nevertheless I can not access the backend, nor the frontend, when clicking on these buttons it redirects to the same page of final step of installation. Someone please enlighten me, no error, attach images.
Greetings.

Did the last step in the installation process create a configuration.php in the root of your website?
If not, then your webserver does not have write access in the folder of your website.

Hello Peter,
Thanks for such a quick response, but the server have the required permits, look at the photos of the installation.
apparently everything looks good, but when entering http://localhost/site redirects to http://localhost/site/installation/index.php
and shows the photo of the last installation step

Yes, i have the file configuration.php, I have opened it and it has the connection data to database and others.
I do not understand what may be happening, I should click on the site button to take me to the frontend.
See attached image.

Hello Peter, I found the solution in this post
viewtopic.php?f=707&t=967307,
Basically although the installation said that all the requirements are ok, apparently Joomla did not have the permissions to delete the installation folder.

Best regards, thank you very much and you can give solved this post

Solution

viewtopic.php?f=707&t=967307 (what I normally do is to rename the folder "Installation" to something like: "Installation-Deleted". then either go to the Administrator or to your sdite to see if it works. I never use the button; have never used it at all.

By renaming the folder, you can re-install if something didn't work right or you can then delete it completely if everything is working as expected. that folder contains many sql files for samples and all that which could be used to install sample data if somebody wants to.)
