Trying to do a fresh install of current version, installer works to stage 5, and says all is well and complete, but when goes to stage 6, wait a long time, then gives:

Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator and inform them of the time the error occurred, and the actions you performed just before this error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

Apache Server at Port 80
This is with quick installer first try, then re-did the files from scratch from a full download, ran the installer again, got the same results.

If you then go to the URL, it gives you this:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_translated_text() in /home/content/92/10010992/html/theories/sources/zones.php on line 488


You can bring up the config editor successfully, and it looks like the database was filled properly. Not sure what's wrong and what to do.

Is this the quick installer? If so, try lowering "Number of files per cycle". On some servers the default is too high (maybe a slow hard disk, or a network disk).

  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

i did the quick installer first, then second time, loaded the files manually and re-ran the install.php both times, stopped after stage 5, stage 5 ran fine, stage 6 did not.

then of course i just went and tried running it again, and it ran all the way whatever happened, didn't this time, so we can ignore this guess….
