I'm a happy geeklog user since .. for years. I've installed it many times, but this time i'm having trouble trying a fresh install (had to because i couldn't migrate my old install)

When i run the installer i just get a " Unfortunately, an error has occurred rendering this page. Please try again later. " but nothing in apache's error log. (all database tables got installed and geeklog seems to work, i just can't log in.)

So i go back to the installer but chose to upgrade this time, i get the same error message. But i have something in apaches log:

[Mon Dec 13 16:26:42.977242 2021] [php:warn] [pid 40340] [client] PHP Warning: Trying to access array offset on value of type bool in /home/mike/Data/WWW/GeekLog/public_html/admin/install/classes/installer.class.php on line 4984, referer: http://freak/admin/install/index.php?mode=check_permissions&dbconfig_path=%2Fhome%2Fmike%2FData%2FWWW%2FGeekLog%2Fdb-config.php&language=english

I also noticed that in the the gl_users table there is an admin password set, but no salt.

I'm running Apache/2.4.48 (Ubuntu) with PHP 8.0.8

I guess it's a problem with the php version .. i already had problems with some plugins i wrote siince php 7.2

Yup the latest released version of Geeklog (including the plugins and install) doesn't support PHP 8 yet so those are the reasons for your errors.

We have added some fixes to the repository to fix these issues but the upcoming version of Geeklog is not ready for release yet. (and will still be a while)

I will add a link to this forum post so it will get tested as well with the trial fix.
