install issues - puneet112 - 02-20-2013

I downloaded latest version of opendocman. Facing issues in setting it up.

As per the instructions:
1. I unzipped opendocman content inside my apache htdocs/opendocman folder
2. Opened <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://localhost/opendocman/install/index.php">http://localhost/opendocman/install/index.php</a><!-- m -->
It stated that config.php file needs to be created. I clicked on "Create a configuration file" button.
3. It opened "http://localhost/opendocman/install/setup-config.php"
which stated that i need to create a database in mysql and should have DB user name and pwd ready. I should also have a data directory to store content files
4. I created a data directory inside apache named "odm_data"
5. Created a database "opendocman" in MySQL
6. Then i clicked "Lets Go" button; which showed me a page to enter database name, id, pwd etc.
7. I entered the details i created above and clicked "Submit" button
8. I got http 500 error. Website can't display page

I dont know what's wrong. I am using apache web server and php5. I tested my apache & php by creating a sample php inside htdocs directory of apache and it opened fine.

Appreciate any help..

Templates_c folder created with right permissions?

That type of error will show up in the web server error log. Take a look in there and see if there is anything you can find that helps explain the issue.

Has anyone got to the bottom of this.

I am having the exact same issue.

Fill out the detail then move onto the next page and I get http 500 internal error.

"GET /opendocman/install/setup-config.php?step=1 HTTP/1.1" 200 3956 "http://dev-esb-1/opendocman/install/setup-config.php" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.04506.648; .NET CLR 3.0.4506.2152; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET4.0C; .NET4.0E)"

Does that mean anything to anyone?
