Automatic Installation Issue

Hello,

So I've never encountered this issue before when installing Nova for the first time.

I've done the normal steps of adding a database, yet the auto installer still won't work.

I've tried following the manual steps:

If for any reason this automatic file creation doesn't work, don't worry. All this does is fill in the database information to a configuration file. You can also open nova/modules/assets/database/db.mysql.php, copy its contents and paste them into a new file called database.php in the application/config directory if you'd rather not use this wizard.

... yet despite following this to the letter, it just comes up with an error message when I try to navigate to the site.

Any suggestions where I'm going wrong???

Re: Automatic Installation Issue

I'm getting this message after trying to connect the DB manually;

Re: Automatic Installation Issue

Don't worry, used my brain to actually search on the forum some of the error message.

I've tried this and I've followed the instructions on what it says when I try to load my site and I still get an error. I've even tried starting fresh and using an older version. I still get the same error message.

I have been told - after sending an email - that the problem might be the PHP version on my server. Current Nova doesn't support version 7. I checked and my server runs on 7.0.29. A new version of NOVA will be out on May 25th.
