  1. @renobird from the page "If the database does not exist, we will attempt to create it", this implies that it should work? And in the setup guide id didn't go through setting up a database for use with processwire I don't think. 

    OK cool though - so I need to create a database (anything specific about it?) 


    @LostKobrakai yes this is what i thought... So this access is a problem then isn't it? I don't know why the access isn't there? I've followed the guide, is there something that I should check here? 



  2. I'm not sure that I really follow this page;


    I've created a database when setting up the server, so I'm presuming that this
    is what's being asked for here?

    The page linked for getting setup 

    doesn't really mention anything about these fields.

    After trying to use the user name on the server, and the password that I entered
    when setting up the mySQL to start with I got the following error (so I had
    filled in "DB Name"={some name that I thought up }, "DB user" = {name of user on
    server}, "DB pass" = {pass i set up for mySQL});


    After this i tried using

    db name; {whatever}
    db user; {name of user on server}
    db pass; {password for user on server}

    This didn't work either, so I'm not sure what I'm meant to put here.

  3. 777 seems excessive - is there something that I'm missing here?

    This is a print out of the /site content;

    total 28
    drwxrwxr-x 6 geot geot 4096 Sep  9 13:30 .
    drwxrwxr-x 8 geot geot 4096 Sep  9 13:17 ..
    drwxrwxr-x 2 geot geot 4096 Sep  6 10:10 assets
    -rwxrwxrwx 1 geot geot 1548 Sep  6 10:10 config.php
    drwxrwxr-x 3 geot geot 4096 Sep  6 10:10 install
    drwxrwxr-x 2 geot geot 4096 Sep  6 10:10 modules
    drwxrwxr-x 5 geot geot 4096 Sep  6 10:10 templates

    I'm sure that I shouldn't have to have permissions so high, but I'm pretty new
    to this.

    Here's a shot of the setup that I'm currently going through;


    You can see that the error (for site/config.php) is no longer there with these
    permissions, but they still 'feel' wrong.


  4. adrian just read it ;) 


    this command returns

    geot@ubuntu-512mb-nyc3-01:/var/www/html$ php -i | grep -i --color gd
    GD Support => enabled
    GD headers Version => 2.1.1
    GD library Version => 2.1.1
    gd.jpeg_ignore_warning => 0 => 0

    If there's any other info i can give to make this post more complete just say.

    Otherwise this seems to be resolved now

  5.  > Did you restart apache after running apt-get?

    No, I've just run 

    sudo systemctl restart apache2


    > What about the php5-gd package? 

    I'm not sure - I'm running php7 so I'm not sure why I would want this package?

    If I try and install this using `sudo apt-get install php5-gd` I get an error as
    follows though

    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    Package php5-gd is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source

    E: Package 'php5-gd' has no installation candidate


  6. Note - I've not set this up, I'm not experienced, I'm probably omitting much
    relevant information as a result so this post will be a bit of a work in
    progress. The answer may be on the forum here - If it is I can't tell for lack
    of experience (I've looked).

    I cannot for the life of me get an install to work and I've tried a lot, and
    I've asked others who're also struggling but I'll try posting here before
    another CMS as I've heard it's nice.

    Info about the server : https://gist.github.com/65086fbc7b5dd03abd0f0461b9c0ec8b

    I'm using the `stable` version of Processwire.

    My `htaccess` file is working - you can test here http://rightangle.space/ and
    click on the admin page to see the internal server error.

    Here is the htaccess file https://gist.github.com/3b805b8ab3c7978aca90a6e39773da00

    Here is the /etc/apache2/apache2.conf file https://gist.github.com/2b2f2518ce7df4af4739413bc967cf56
