Trying to install modules gives an error

Hi There,

I have tried to install a module, but in the terminal it generates the following error:
Started in the root (where fuel and index.php are located)

php index.php fuel/installer/install validate

A PHP Error was encountered

I have the database setup correctly, as I can see the dashboard of the fuelcms.

So what is wrong?

Comments

  • I've ran into a similar issue on Mac due to having multiple version of PHP installed. Make sure you use an absolute path to the PHP binary. So for example, if you are using MAMP, /Applications/MAMP/bin/php/php5.3.6/bin/php
