404 error when installing

Recommended Posts


I've been trying to install the version of phpVMS on the github for a while now. I've finally got the first page to show up (where it says phpVMS not installed). When I click "Head on to the installer", I get a 404 Not Found Error. 

I have php 7.1 with all the requirements, mySQL, nginx/1.10.3, and I'm running on Debian Jessie.

Any ideas? Been stuck with this for a while.

EDIT: Just checked the nginx error.log. It says something about not being able to find "/var/www/phpvms/public/install/index.php". I checked the github to see if it was a problem cloning the files, but it doesn't have a folder named install in the public directory either. 

2018/02/10 13:46:19 [error] 24648#24648: *2 FastCGI sent in stderr: "Unable to open primary script: /var/www/phpvms/public/install/index.php (No such file or directory)" while reading response header from upstream, client:, server: , request: "GET /install/index.php?q=user HTTP/1.1", upstream: "fastcgi://unix:/run/php/php7.1-fpm.sock:", host: ""

I get the same.

Ubuntu 18.04, Apache2, PHP 7.2

I've tried removing the content from the phpvms folder and doing another git clone, then tried uploading from the zip. No change...

Same Error here, did you figured it out?


PHP 7.3

Apache 2

MySQL 10.1.37-MariaDB-0+deb9u1

Debian 9


Sadly no Logs in the storage/logs folder...

I don't think any version will presently work with PHP 7.3. Which exact version are you trying to install - Nabeel's version 5 or Simpilot's version 5.5.2?

Can you revert to a previous version of PHP? Maybe 7.0 for Nabeel's v5 and 5.6 for Simpilot's v5.5.2.

How about MySQL? I do know the Simpilot version will not install with MySQL 5.7 presently, so I used MySQL 5.6

Tried it with PHP 7.1, nginx (as its recommended on the installation guide) and MySQL 5.6. No success. 

And I am trying to install this version and with this instructions. This is the right forum for it, right?

By the way, I observed that the composer runs through perfectly, the vendor directory appears...

Still no Logs in storage, also no errors in var/logs/nginx/error.log

That's version 7. The forum you posted in is for the 'classic' versions.... 2.x, 5 and 5.5.2 only. This is the PHPVMS CLASSIC forums. Look down in the next section for the PHPVMS 7 forums.


Version 7 is in early beta and shouldn't be used for a production site.
