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.

  • Virtualhost will not have an effect, because you are not using a domain name in the browser but 127.0.0.1. 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?

    Is the php-xml extension enabled?

    The configuration.php is not required for the installation process

    Have you installed all the necessary php server modules for your PHP version? See downloads.joomla.org/technical-requirements

If 'configuration.php-dist' exists you have not installed Joomla.

Check here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Joomla

For a Guide to Installing Joomla! on an Ubuntu Server.

Change your apache2/sites-available/joomla.conf to {modify to your situation}:

<VirtualHost 192.168.1.1 xxx.xx.xx.xx> DocumentRoot "/www/server1" ServerName server.example.com ServerAlias server

If you continue to have issues, post them here.
