I'm trying to install Meeting Room Booking System on ubuntu 12.04 I think I have apache and php5 up and working fine. A test.php file with contents:

<?php phpinfo(); ?>

loads and gives me plenty of info.

Here's the guide I attempted to follow


Unfortunately I point my browser at localhost/mrbs/web/ and I get a blank document.

Any ideas?

  • jorge: did you edit to only remove the 12.04 tag? Did I use it inappropriately? – N8tron Aug 17 '12 at 5:09

Apparently what I want is called a LAMP server. According to the Here all I need to do is

 sudo apt-get install lamp-server^

with the ^ or else it doesn't work. Anyhow I've done this and I no longer get a blank page now I get a "Fatal error: failed to connect to database"

Turns out, I had tried to give my mrbs mysql user enough privileges, but it didn't go right. Fixed this and it works!
