Quick update: I had some spare time a few days ago and initially planned on logging the output of the installation process but instead ended up investigating the problem further. I ran some of the postinstall scrips manually and if I remember correctly, added some apache2 configurations settings manually.
In the end I was able to get the web admin interface running but had a red “Server process stopped.” error on the sidebar.
I believe it might have something to do with what’s in the mysql logs:
$ sudo tail /var/log/mysql/error.log
2019-09-28 15:12:08 1030 [Warning] Aborted connection 1030 to db: 'bluecherry' user: 'bluecherry' host: 'localhost' (Got an error reading communication packets)
There’s nothing in Bluecherry logs:
$ sudo tail /var/log/bluecherry.log
I am able to login to mysql with the bluecherry credentials on the command line so maybe this is relates to the different php/mysql versions?
Worth noting is that during the postinstall script the database verify step fails (only end part shown):
+ `disabled` tinyint(1) NOT NULL DEFAULT 0,
PRIMARY KEY (`id`)
) ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8;
/*!40101 SET character_set_client =
Database doesn't match reference schema
I have done all my modifications over a git cloned version of the repo so I can push them to a fork later on if needed. At this point I don’t have further info to provide as I’m busy this weekend.
