    And of course the first thing you did was to search on this forum for that exact message. There was one thread couple of days ago

    After that turn on your debug modus.

    If you ask how I'm going to cry

  • Peregrine, I went to that first link and started to follow their advice....but I cannot find any /conf/config.php file anywhere. Closest thing to it is config-defaults.php...am I missing something here?

  • yes.

    During a normal installation process, it should give you a config.php after installtion completes.

    Since you are doing a new install. You might as well download 2.1.1 make sure you copy all files over from zip and re-install.

    a few people have had problems where the config.php is not created.

    if all else fails you might be able to create one manually. but I would re-install if it was me.
