  Hi Marijn,

  You'll have to delete secret.php to allow the installer to go through its steps again.

Hey Morc,

Thanks for your quick answer.
The command works for me, except that I cannot go further than step 1 of 7 anymore, since the configuration checks have already been done.
Any idea how I can go around this and move on to other steps?

  Hi Marijn,

  I guess the user/group is not ocrrect hence httpd can't read the secret.php file. chown -R apache:apache /var/www/html/RackTables-0.21.4/wwwroot should fix it for you. Unless CentOS runs httpd under user httpd or some other user. The replace apache:apache with that user/group, like www-data on Debian and co.

I am halfway through the installation of racktables 0.21.4 on CentOS 8, I got upto step 4 of 7.
After I issued the command 'chmod 440 /var/www/html/RackTables-0.21.4/wwwroot/inc/secret.php’ I see the following:

This page isn’t working is currently unable to handle this request.

The installation does not go on.
And when I change the permissions back to 644 and go to http://my-server-ip/racktables/?module=installer I go back to step 1 and get stuck there.
It then says the following, and I can’t go on with where I left off...

  RackTables installation: step 1 of 7

Your configuration file exists and seems to hold necessary data already.

Any idea how to fix this without having to reinstall the whole thing?
