I'm trying to install SMF 2.1 frpm development repository but i can't

The problem is when i try to install, when i go to where is installed the script give me 500 error and when i check the error found "Settings.php failed to open stream". So i go to installer path and definitely not exist also not exist install.php.

How is suppose to install SMF 2.1?

Are you just trying it out, or are you looking to do development on it?

Use the nightly build from https://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=558451.0 instead.

GitHub has a slightly odd setup so that devs don’t accidentally commit their Settings.php file.

Is the error the same as in your opening post?
"This is really a generic concept about human thinking - when faced with large tasks we're naturally inclined to try to break them down into a bunch of smaller tasks that together make up the whole."

"A 500 error loosely translates to the webserver saying, "WTF?"..."

Confirmed bug.  Just logged an issue on Github:
https://github.com/SimpleMachines/SMF2.1/issues/5210

Address the process rather than the outcome.  Then, the outcome becomes more likely.   - Fripp

Fix has been merged, i.e., a fresh download from Github should work now.
