5.1.32 Fresh install


I managed to get to the setup website.

Tested PDF - Success
Tested Database - Success
Tested Email - Success

When I submit the settings nothing happens. I don’t get redirected to Login page, nor the database gets any tables.

this is my Apache conf:

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerName newinvoice.local.com
DocumentRoot /var/www/invoice-ninja/public

<Directory /var/www/invoice-ninja/public>
   DirectoryIndex index.php
   Options +FollowSymLinks
   AllowOverride All
   Require all granted

ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/invoice-ninja.error.log
CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/invoice-ninja.access.log combined

Include /etc/apache2/conf-available/php7.4-fpm.conf

Can you please suggest where to troubleshoot it?

Thank you

Are there any errors in the web server error logs?

Thank you for your reply Hillel.

Actually, there is a strange log in error.log. I’m using a generated strong passwords for mysql and it might be a problem using those characters.

The environment file is invalid!
Failed to parse dotenv file. Encountered unexpected whitespace at ["WpY9zg~8;-~7EjIS{i].

"WpY9zg~8;-~7EjIS{i is the temporary mysql password

I will try to change it for MEDIUM or LOW.


Yes, exactly.

That was it !!!

Thank you
