I am new to Joomla, I have installed it on Ubuntu 21.04 / with apache2 & Mariadb-server/client. My issue at the moment when attempting to access the Joomla via a web browser and Error appears (see below images)

Additionally, I have enabled both the configuration.php-dist & php.ini files to display error reporting, however, no errors are being displayed. I have a sense the error might be related to the joomla.conf, then again 🤷‍♂️

Here is the joomla.conf:

  • If I'm not mistaken, you should be using whatever you've defined fo ServerName in your browser. But try replacing .com with something like .local. – Lodder Jul 21 at 4:55
  • Virtualhost will not have an effect, because you are not using a domain name in the browser but You have to make a copy of configuration.php-dist and name it configuration.php for Joomla to read it. Does www-data have write access to the /var/www/html/joomla directory? – Geoffrey Jul 21 at 12:30

    Is the php-xml extension enabled? – Geoffrey Jul 21 at 12:51

    The configuration.php is not required for the installation process – Lodder Jul 21 at 13:27

    Have you installed all the necessary php server modules for your PHP version? See downloads.joomla.org/technical-requirements – pe7er Jul 21 at 16:26
