Help! - Page Will Not Load When I Try to Login

I am new to vanilla forums as of yesterday, so I am likely making an amateur mistake, but I have searched online and have been unable to find a solution. Okay, here is the problem that I am experiencing:

When I login to the forum with my administrator login information from the "homepage" (The home forum page that a visitor would see.) the site gives me this message -

"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."

Once this message appears, the site will no longer load. I am able to login through the /index.php?p=dashboard/settings and this works fine, even after the front end no longer works. After this happened, I tried to load the forum from a different browser. It worked, until I did the same (Try to login with the admin account through the forum homepage). I tried it with a third browser - same story. It worked at first, I tried to login and then that message.

My site is hosted through GoDaddy and I installed it with the Installatron feature.

Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this?

Thanks for your help!

    You need to turn debug on . Search the forum the answer has been answered before .

  • Thanks! Here is what I received from turning on the debug

    test.lidarnews.com/vanilla

  • I changed the permissions on /cache/Smarty/compile to 777 as I saw this suggested on a post...It did not resolve the problem

    The installation features with certain hosts sucks and it is not advised to do so.

    Get the application Filezilla and get the login info for your host and then re upload the files from the fresh install you are going to download from here in the add ons section.

    Do not give 777 permissions because you are opening yourself to being hacked.

    Use filezilla to overwrite your files. Before that save the config.php on the desktop just in case. then delete the .ini files in the cache of the forum folder.

    Make sure your host is using correct php version required to run this.

  • Thank!
