    look at your error message it says:

    unable to write to compile dir - and lists exactly which folder you need to adjust permissions on.

    cache/Smarty/compile

    I shudder to think who owns what on your file system and the permissions all residing in the home directory of the administrator.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

    The $comile_dir is the variable for the compile folder in the smarty folder. The error indicates your host/server is not letting the folder compile be written to.

  • @vrijvlinder just reinstall vanilla and change file permissions. It's simple problem but I couldn't see it before

    occasionally 2 better than 3.

    What helps the most in these cases is adding the mater dev error view to see what is actually happening.

    Blank page sucks, I prefer the bonk or something... I had this happen to me on update. First got the 500 then something went totally wrong message , then got the , I think you are getting closer message, finally I just saw a large green checkmark and Lincoln's pic beside it ... cool new addition to the install , the installcoach plugin :)
