Installing Issue

edited April 2015 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8

Hey community,

I just decided to try vanilla since I heard so much positive feedback about it. I used different forum CMS already and I am quite familiar with some of the huge ones. However, I just installed vanilla (the newest version) on a completely fresh database. After the successfull installation I'm getting redirected to the admin panel. Cool so far. But if I try to check out my board's index all I see is:

Something has gone wrong.
We've run into a problem and are unable to handle this request right now.
Please check back in a little while.

How is that even possible? I am not running any theme, nor plugin?

Help please!

    Add $Configuration['Debug'] = TRUE; to /conf/config.php in order to see the actual error.

    Would you mind briefly saying what the issue was, for future reference?

    @whu606 I am sorry.

    I had an issue with the permission set of the subfolders of Cache. As it says in the installation the permissions on Cache, conf and Upload has to be set to 777. However, I missed to include the subfolder Cache/Smarty to the permission change. =)

    Okay, after adding $Configuration['Debug'] = TRUE; it prints me following to the screen:

    The error occurred on or near: /var/www/domains/
    1109: * @param integer $error_type
    1110: */
    1111: function trigger_error($error_msg, $error_type = E_USER_WARNING)
    1112: {
    1113: trigger_error("Smarty error: $error_msg", $error_type);
    1114: }
    1117: /**
