I’ve got a VPS running Ubuntu, Apache, PHP, and MySQL. I conformed to the installation instructions and after using wget to download and unzip to mydomain.com/stats/ This phenomenon is happening whether I download and unzip via CLI or whether I ftp the files over (binary).
After copying the files over, I thought that pointing my browser to mydomain.com/stats/ should trigger the installer wizard, but instead I get the index of the stats folder.
If I click on the How to install Piwik link, it merely re-directs me to the instructions page on the Piwik site.
If i try to go to mydomain.com/stats/piwik/index.php, I get an error occurred.
If I try to go to mydomain.com/stats/piwik/piwik.php I get a browser error that the site isn’t working. error 500.
Any advice? Any other details I can provide that can assist in troubleshooting this issue?
