I seem to be having some trouble getting expression engine to install on my server. I've set everything up as directed and still am having issues with it. When I go to the home page - no matter what I do I still see "Your config file does not appear to be formatted correctly."
So I Double checked the permissions and directories and everything looks fine. I however did notice that the drop down for data base type is completely empty and un selectable ( I don't know if this is a bug).
I can fill out all the information and click create and then the url changes and the browser screen just turns white. It doesn't look like anything is happening (nothing spinning or moving in the browser tabs) but regardless I let it run a few minutes - and nothing. I checked the config and database.php files and both are still blank.
This has been quite frustrating as I have installed EE many times before with no problem at all. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading!!
EDIT - I am using -
centOS: 5 PHP: 5.3.29 apache: 2.2 mySQL: 5.6
I would also like to add - the database type drop down is not populated with anything and I'm thinking that may be a helpful clue.
