Installation issues on Ubuntu Server

Hey :slight_smile:
So, I’ve got a problem installing passbolt on my Ubuntu Sever 22.04. It seems like my apache server works, downloading the dependencies installation script works, the SHA512SUM-thingy is looking good too! Executing it, however…

./ line 11: warning: setlocale: LC_ALL: cannot change locale (en_US.UTF-8): No such file or directory
PHP is already installed, you must execute this script on a vanilla server
“Bad checksum. Aborting”

I don’t know what to do. Get rid of everything and start from scratch? I’ve installed so much stuff and I only meant well, you know? :confused:

Hey @Michelle welcome to the forum!

The method you are using to install Passbolt does expect a fresh server. If you install this way it will help you set up Nginx and MySQL/Mariadb so it is best not to have other things installed.

Are you planning to install just Passbolt on this server or along side other things? If you are just planning on running Passbolt it would probably be best to start from scratch. If you are planning on running Passbolt along with other things(not hugely recommended) then you’d likely want to follow the from source installation instructions as that method expects you to have already set up some things.

Generally speaking I’d recommend using the package and starting with a clean server as that tends to be a lot easier than doing a from source installation.
