XF 1.5 Can't load installed - Error 500

#1
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 27.33.241.132:56833] 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 27.33.241.132:56833] 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.

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!
