when using wordpress script on virtualmin pro no admin user is created

Hi All,

When I use the virtualmin pro installer for wordpress i can do the steps for installation e.g. select admin name and password.

virtualmin installation is a fresh one on ubuntu Ubuntu Linux 14.04LTS

then when the setup wants to go to step 2 nothing happened a blank page is presented ( seems that the script is not completely executed)

when i take a look in the database, no admin user is created and the sit is unreachable.

the same happens when i take the standard installer from wordpress,
file and directory rights are exactly the same as the old one…

I got stuck on this.

Anyone?

Howdy,

When performing a Wordpress installation using the Install script, what output do you see in Virtualmin during the installation process?

And when attempting the Step 2 that you mentioned above, do you see any errors in the Apache logs for that domain, located in $HOME/logs/error_log?

howdy,

the following

[fcgid:warn] [pid 3177] [client xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:58714] mod_fcgid: stderr: PHP Warning: require(/home/**/public_html/wordpress/wp-includes/functions.php): failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home//public_html/wordpress/wp-settings.php on line 72

line 72 refers to:
functions.php

++++++
// Load early WordPress files.
require( ABSPATH . WPINC . ‘/compat.php’ );
require( ABSPATH . WPINC . ‘/functions.php’ );
require( ABSPATH . WPINC . ‘/class-wp.php’ );
require( ABSPATH . WPINC . ‘/class-wp-error.php’ );
require( ABSPATH . WPINC . ‘/plugin.php’ );
require( ABSPATH . WPINC . ‘/pomo/mo.php’ );

looks like an absolute path it cannot find …

but why is this happening?

Howdy,

So far, I haven’t been able to reproduce the issue you’re seeing.

What distro/version are you using? And are you using that distros default PHP version?

Is there anything in the public_html directory of that domain that might cause problems for sub-directories, such as a .htaccess file?

Also, does this problem only occur for this one domain? Or does it happen when installing WordPress into other domains on your server?

virtualmin installation is a fresh one on ubuntu Ubuntu Linux 14.04LTS
it’s all standard with only one domain so I cannot test it with anther domain,

I tried installing it in public_html and in a sub directory both gave the same result

public_html is completely emty exept for some other installed scripts which are working fine.
