Trouble installing GeekShop on EC2 instance AWS

Posted In Product Support
  • wayne-laury 2 years ago
    Hello- I have been trying to install Geekshop on an EC2 instance on Amazon and I have been unable to do so. I have the database setup and phpmyadmin and all I am getting when I go to the domain is a file tree; I renamed the index.php to index1.php, otherwise I get the Laravel welcome screen. 
    
    It is a little confusing because of the Public folder that is standard with Laravel and the Geekshop script has a public folder, so in desperation I moved the GeekShop public folder to the root and I get the same situation. 
    
    Any help would be great. Thanks

    Hey @Wayne-laury,
    
    Sorry to hear that you are having trouble installing the script. Have you installed a Laravel app on Ec2 before? Are you familiar with the Laravel File Structure? 
    
    Here is a video that shows you how to install Laravel on Ec2 [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ARpTKWc6lQ](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ARpTKWc6lQ), let me know if you are doing things similar to this video. If you still can't get that fitured out I can help you out more :)
    
    Make sure that the domain or ip address is setup so that way it points to the public folder. Keep me posted. Thanks.

    That is the issue that I am having. Pointing to the public directory. I followed the video and installed Laravel. That was the easy part. Just need to know how to point the domain to the public directory. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Also, do all files and folders go into the public directory? Thanks, and I look forward to your reply.

    Nope, basically all the files should be in the same place as the public folder and the current public folder should be overwritten by the Geekshop public folder :)
    
    Let me know if that helps.
    
    Additionally, If you have verified your purchase you will be able to see a download button on the products page. If you download the latest version, you will see to versions of the script in there which include:
    
    1. geekshop.zip
    2. geekshop-developer-version.zip
    
    The `geekshop-developer-version.zip` is the Laravel version and the other version will be able to be installed on any server, so you may want to try the `geekshop.zip` version.
    
    Keep me posted if that helps :)
    
    Thanks. Talk to you soon.

    Well, I have switched servers to ubuntu, downloaded the non-laravel script, and changed file and folder permissions but I get a  HTTP ERROR 500 when I load the page. Just curious if I am missing something. This is my file structure: /var/www/html 
    
    At this point I am at a loss. I am sure it is something simple, but any help would be appreciated.
