I am new to Magento and need some installation help.
I have setup CentOS 7 running as a virtual machine in VirtualBox. Have also installed Apache 2.4.6 and PHP 7.0.7 with MySql 5.6.31. Database for magento was also created.
After copying the files of Magento-CE-2.0.7 to /var/www/html/magento, I also did
sudo chown -R apache:apache /var/www/html/magento and
sudo chmod -R 755 /var/www/html/magento
When I tried to access Magento using http://localhost/magento, I get a blank page
or from the VirtualBox Host environment http://virtualmachine-IP/magento, I get HTTP error 500
Both URL have also been verified using http://localhost and http://virtualmachine-IP and both returned the Apache's test page.
Attached image is the result from Apache's error_log -
I hope somebody can offer a solution.
What was the issue - so that others can follow?
