Installation Problem

Permalink
I've just downloaded and installed a fresh copy of C5 and it looked like the installation went fine, but after logging in I am just getting a blank overlay. When I look in the Chrome developer tools, I'm seeing a 404 Not Found error on /index.php/dashboard/home?_ccm_dashboard_external=1. All the other assets however seem to load fine. Does anybody have any ideas on why this might be happening? Using PHP 5.3 and nginx in a local virtual machine. I've attached the screenshot for reference. Thanks for any help in advance!

Are you using the stable version or the beta version?

If you are using the stable version, I would think that a uninstall and reinstall would do the trick. Be sure that you download a fresh copy, don't use the one that you tried before.

If you are trying to use the beta version, use the stable version. I have never had success setting up the beta version.

I'm using the stable version. I even tried one of the older versions of C5 and am still having the same issue. I have no problems at the dashboard or system settings, it's only on the home page of the site. I am thinking I have a misconfiguration for nginx, but I'm baffed why the dashboard / system settings work fine. I've attached another screenshot.

You have not edited it or anything yet, right?

It sounds exactly like a JQuery conflict, but if you have not put anything on the site, then there should be no conflict.

Nope I haven't edited anything. It's a brand new fresh installation of C5. I've tried re-installing about 5 times now ugh.

change the permision in your server at 755

Permissions are 775, so it's not a permissions issue :(

I have no idea if this is how it works, but I noticed he said 755. You said 775. Could that mean anything?

Having 775 is even more permissive than 755, as the owner and group both have full permissions. So the permissions shouldn't be the issue!

Hello,
You may need to make sure errors are viewable on your server. If not, and you are on a Debian/Ubuntu server you might be able to see those here.

/var/logs/nginx/error.log

Not sure of the location of CentOS/Redhat, but I'm guessing you could hunt that down.

It's likely that you are getting some of php error that you aren't seeing that would help you track this down.

Best Wishes,
Mike

I never thought of checking the nginx logs, good call. I've managed to track down some errors that were logged which you can view here:

The line that looks really interesting is this line:

2013/06/16 11:42:33 [error] 3040#0: *3 open() "/var/www/indianlakes/index.php/tools/required/page_controls_menu_js" failed (20: Not a directory), client: 192.168.1.10, server: , request: "GET

I'm thinking maybe I have my rewrite rules wrong, however it's weird that the other assets load fine. Hmmmm, back to the drawing board to figure this one out. I think it may also be related to PATH_INFO.

FINALLY got this working. Turns out it was the PATH_INFO environment variable not being set properly. I followed the advice from the post below to get it working. Thank you all for the help, I appreciate it!
