    Hi All,

    Trying to install XF for the first time. I'm getting 500 errors when attempting to load the directory containing XF.

    Error log states:

    [Sun Jun 12 12:58:12.035129 2016] [:error] [pid 5496] [client] SoftException in Application.cpp:603: Directory "/home/broncos/public_html/xen" is writeable by group
    [Sun Jun 12 12:58:12.035188 2016] [core:error] [pid 5496] [client] End of script output before headers: index.php

    Help appreciated!

    Not sure if I'm correct but I think it's because /home/broncos/public_html/xen is writeable by group so you'll need to change the permissions for that directory so that it's not writable by group.

    Hahah I was the same way! Don't worry about it :D But did it work?

    It sure did! I was actually not going to copy paste that line. I never check logs as my host usually does, so I thought the lines there were just informing me of the permissions, not telling me that was the specific reason. Derp!
