Simple portal (and others) install errors
« on: November 14, 2017, 09:41:37 PM »
Any idea on what in my core files are messed up for these errors. 
This started with installing Simple portal 3.3.6 from 3.3.5   I installed 3.3.6 from the installer and got the HTTP500 error.  I "upgraded" SMF and got the forum back but now installing and uninstalling packages gives me the errors that I have the screen capture for.
I am not sure if it is the theme (Current, up to date) or the core files.

Its always important to make a full backup of files and your database before installing anything. The mod you were installing was not compatible with the current version of SMF. Sometimes you can change the settings to make it work but that can also lead to other problems.
