From the initial install screen, I'm getting error "An application error occurred. Please try again."

Running Ubuntu 10.04.4, PHP 5.3.14-1, nginx 0.7.65.

All boxes on Install are green except Apache (optional).

My error.log looks like this:

2012/06/29 18:04:17 [error] 1430#0: *22 open() "/srv/www/vbx.example.com/public_html/index.php/install" failed (20: Not a directory), client: 206.248.139.39, server: vbx.example.com, request: "GET /index.php/install HTTP/1.1", host: "vbx.example.com"

Firebug shows me this:

GET http://vbx.example.com/support/rewrite/index.php
404 Not Found
41ms
?g=installjs (line 16)

POST http://vbx.example.com/index.php/index.php/install/validate
404 Not Found
43ms
?g=installjs (line 16)

My nginx config file looks like this:

server {
    listen   80;
    server_name vbx.example.com;
    access_log /srv/www/vbx.example.com/logs/access.log;
    error_log /srv/www/vbx.example.com/logs/error.log;

    location / {
        root   /srv/www/vbx.example.com/public_html;
        index  index.php;

        if (-f $request_filename) {
           break;
        }

        if (-d $request_filename) {
           break;
        }
        rewrite  ^(.*)$  /index.php?vbxsite=$1  last;
    }

    location ~ \.php$ {
        include /etc/nginx/fastcgi_params;
        proxy_pass_header Set-Cookie;
        fastcgi_pass_header Set-Cookie;
        fastcgi_pass  127.0.0.1:9000;
        fastcgi_index index.php;
        fastcgi_param  SCRIPT_FILENAME /srv/www/vbx.example.com/public_html/$fastcgi_script_name;
    }
}

It seems to be an nginx rewrite issue but I can't decipher any more than that. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks!

jpsim,

I've been playing around with this and the issue might be requests for favicons & robots.txt being routed to OpenVBX.

Try adding this to your nginx config:

location /(favicon.ico|robots.txt) {
    access_log off; 
    log_not_found off;
    error_page 404 /404;
    expires   30d;
    add_header Cache-Control public;
}

I was able to get through the install process by changing the OpenVBX.home variable to the proper address (it was showing up as http://myserveraddress.com/index.php/index.php)

Now I can't login. It continues to log me out and with @Gipetto's new config attempts gives me a 404 with the auth/login?redirect url. I've tried using all of the nginx config files I can find. I'm going to try digging into this a little deeper later.

@klearvue

Changing OpenVBX.home to actual URI allowed me to complete install and I am able to log in and use OpenVBX normally. Thanks for the hint, bjtitus!

Just in case someone else finds this thread, I found that if I changed the config.php file, specifically this line $config['index_page'] = 'index.php'; to$config['index_page'] = ''; My issue was solved. This is because the rewrite was already setup. If you have index.php in that config entry it will duplicate it on the OpenVBX.home variable in JS.

@oojacoboo

add this to your php block...

fastcgi_split_path_info ^(.+.php)(.+)$;

fastcgi_param PATH_INFO $fastcgi_path_info;

@ringe

@davismwfl Thank you, that worked for me too.

/OpenVBX/config/config.php

$config['index_page'] = '';

Nginx server:

Put the following directly ABOVE php directive.

Example:

location / {
    index  index.php;   
    if (!-e $request_filename){
    rewrite ^/(.*) /index.php?vbxsite=$1;
    }
}

location ~ \.php$ {
#do typical php-fpm stuff

}
