    I have recently purchased a license and uploaded all the files. When I run the installer an go to the next step, it does not advance past the Welcome page. Does anyone have any idea how to fix this? I already chmodded all the files and rewrite is enabled.

    I'm using a VPS running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. Server is Apache 2.2 and PHP version installed is 5.4 (using php-fpm).

    Any specific errors? What exactly happens when you click for the next step? Ideally there will be some error or output.

    I installed it on a different server and then move the files back and importing the database, and now it appears to work, but none of the pages works as it gives a 404 error as seen in my access log.

    - - [21/Jul/2015:05:34:34 +0000] "GET /index.php HTTP/1.1" 404 5513 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_9_5) AppleWebKit/600.7.12 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/7.1.7 Safari/537.85.16"

    This indicates a problem with the apache configuration, but I do have AllowOverride enabled, which makes me even more puzzled as I don't have any problems with Wordpress using rewrite with the same server configuration.

    Here is my VHost configuration:
    DocumentRoot /home/chikorita157/abcafe
    <Directory /home/chikorita157/abcafe>
            Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
                    AllowOverride All
            Order allow,deny
            allow from all
        ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /usr/lib/cgi-bin/
        <Directory "/usr/lib/cgi-bin">
            AllowOverride All
            Options +ExecCGI -MultiViews +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch
            Order allow,deny
            Allow from all
        ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/aberror.log
        # Possible values include: debug, info, notice, warn, error, crit,
        # alert, emerg.
        LogLevel warn
        CustomLog /var/log/apache2/abaccess.log combined
    ServerName abcafe.ateliershiori.moe
    Also, the figuration to make PHP5-FPM work with fastcgi
    <IfModule mod_fastcgi.c>
        AddHandler php5-fcgi .php
                    Action php5-fcgi /php5-fcgi
                    Alias /php5-fcgi /usr/lib/cgi-bin/php5-fcgi
                    FastCgiExternalServer /usr/lib/cgi-bin/php5-fcgi -host -pass-header Authorization
    Update: I reverted back to mod_php and everything works.
