    Limesurvey - stuck at install

    I'm trying to get a limesurvey test box working. Installed ubuntu 11 and set up as a LAMP server.

    PHP is working according to phpinfo and I can login to the mysql server.

    But when I run the first stage of limesurvey where you browse to the \admin\install folder to run the install stage, all I get is a blank page (http 500 error)

    As far as my limited knowledge goes, everything seems to be working (php,mysql,apache) so I'm a bit stuck.

    I've checked the limesurvey forums but theres not much relating to an error like this?

    is there anything in /var/log/apache2/error.log that helps with identifying the problem?

    I would look at the file permissions that you hav eon the Limesurvey directory. I installed a limesurvey a while back and never had any problems other than with file permissions.

    Run
    Code:
    sudo tail /var/log/apache2/error.log
    (where 500 errors are saved) immediately after trying the installation.
