I've always had trouble trying to install PufferPanel

  • I've tried months ago and kept getting Error 500 just after installing the panel. I have tried again tonight and I'm still running into the same problem. I have literally tried installing it on a virtual machine, 2 different operating systems in fact, with the installer and I have always ran into the ERROR 500 whilst Tracy can't collect any error logs. Well, Tracy may be a terrible secretary, I have done tons of googling and searching and I can't seem to find the problem that I am having. I am using NGINX, I have followed the installation guide STEP BY STEP. I don't know if I am doing something wrong or not.

    I'm trying to install it on my Ubuntu VPS. Please have mercy; help. :(

    Thank you!

  • The issue with the logger is it simply doesn't have permissions to write the logs.

    The "hack" fix is to just chmod the folder to 777, which makes it insecure, but is the quickest way to get around it

    chmod 777 /srv/pufferpanel/logs

  • Aww thank you so much!!!!!

    You see, I thought it was a permission issue but I didn't know what needed proper permissions.
