Getting the following error when installing OCPortal

Hi, for some reason the error message has not posted. Could you explain what the error is?

I'm not sure you included the full stack trace there. We would want the whole thing pasted in, not just the part "above the fold".

However, it looks like an odd and poorly configured server. My guess is that the server has been set up with a PHP post execution script, which is failing with an error due to incorrect permissions, and triggering ocPortal's error handler (as we display all errors that happen).

Become a fan of ocPortal on Facebook or add me as a friend. Add me on on Twitter.
Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • 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 ocPortal 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.
