    Are you trying to call this menu via lightbox? Because, entity menu is a dropdown menu by default not a lightbox. What's in you browser console? Again, no code, no help ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ view reply

    1 - Check the MySQL and servers error log 2 - Check the read+write permissions on the directory/file where Elgg will install view reply
  • zvinisim added a new discussion topic Error secret in install elgg in the group Elgg Technical Support
    I'm trying to install ELGG. I went through the database screen and then I get the error "The site secret is not set." What am I doing wrong? I am in version 3.3.14    
    • 1 - Check the MySQL and servers error log

      2 - Check the read+write permissions on the directory/file where Elgg will install

    • I can give more details about my server and maybe it will help solve the problem
      I have a VM private server that has ContOs7 installed on it and this system has free web hosting of the type https://kloxong.org/
      The domain is a full domain and not a sub subdomain or subdomain folder.
      All files are in 777 permissions including DATA folder (I called it by another name and outside of installation folder)
      Please note that I am now getting an HTTP ERROR 500 server error

      I enclose an excerpt from a log I found on the server (I changed the identifying details to a mark **)

    • Try this tutorial.

      1. Let's say your Elgg root installed directory is:

      /var/www/elgg/www/

      And data directory is:

      /var/www/elgg/data/

      Then your Elgg config is located at:

      /var/www/elgg/www/elgg-config/settings.php

      If you can't find this file then copy file from:

      /var/www/elgg/www/vendor/elgg/elgg/elgg-config/settings.example.php

      And paste + rename it on:

      /var/www/elgg/www/elgg-config/settings.php

       

      2. Open your Elgg config file and fill out these params (I did it with some examples):

      $CONFIG->dataroot = "/var/www/elgg/data/";
      $CONFIG->wwwroot = "/var/www/elgg/www/";
      $CONFIG->dbuser = 'root';
      $CONFIG->dbpass = '12345';
      $CONFIG->dbname = 'elgg';
      $CONFIG->dbhost = 'localhost';
      $CONFIG->dbport = '3306';
      $CONFIG->dbprefix = 'elgg_';

      Of course, you should create a database 'elgg' with utf8mb4 encoding.

      I recommend to delete the existing Elgg database before.

      NoteYou can learn more reading the comments in the mentioned file.

       

      3. Go to /var/www/elgg/data/ and delete all folders/files.

       

      4. Find out your webserver username.

      Usually, www-data or apache or httpd.

      Note: Learn this tutorial to find this name.

       

      5. Let's say your webserver name is:

      www-data

      Now use these commands via console:

      chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/elgg/data/
      
      chmod -R 750  /var/www/elgg/data/
      
      chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/elgg/www/elgg-config/

       

      Done.

      Now you've a manual pre-setuped Elgg and can try to install it again skipping some steps.

      If you've errors then check your server logs again.

      Note: there're already discussed topics about CentOS fails - please read them before start using this tutorial.

      Good luck!
