I have try to install passbolt on my server. I taked the error in installation wizard and finally I solved problems.
I take healtcheck report , everything is OK.
with this code:
sudo su -s /bin/bash -c “/var/www/passbolt/bin/cake passbolt healthcheck” www-data

I’m showing web interface and i installed chrome extension.

I have try to send mail with command line and thats OK. The mail sent to address.
with this code:
/var/www/passbolt/bin/cake passbolt send_test_email --recipient=xxxx

But I didn’t login the system and I didn’t recovery account with web interface. Gui says

But mail didn’t sent to the address.

And I have try to new install with cli
with this code:
sudo su -s /bin/bash -c “/var/www/passbolt/bin/cake passbolt install” www-data

Everything Ok and it show the link

When I went this link, I show the page like installation page. I fill the all data. I backup key file. But the last step give an error.

Json data give error like this.

Also have try to recovery this account and I found the recovery link in sending email (emailqueue) to user email address .
with this code:
sudo su -s /bin/bash -c “/var/www/passbolt/bin/cake EmailQueue.preview” www-data

recovery link like this

this page shows for user login but it’s want to private key file and it didn’t accept the backup key file(from installation page).

How can i login the system?

Hello @ali,

Can you please tell us more about:

  • The environment on which you installed passbolt? OS / PHP version.
  • The documentation you were following to install passbolt: from scratch / using the distro install script / using the beta debian package ?

Regarding the error 500, could you provide us with a copy of logs/error.log file, it would help to understand what’s going on.

Regarding the email which are not sent, the log file could help if you have installed passbolt using the install script. If you installed passbolt from scratch it could be related to the cron job, see the setup the emails section of the following documentation:
