I have just installed Omeka and am getting the imminently helpful and vague error message “Omeka has encountered an error” when I try to access it through the browser.
When I try to follow the instructions for retrieving errors everything directs me to access the .htaccess file at the root of the installation. There is no .htaccess file at the root of the installation!
There is in fact no such file on the entire server that I can find.
Are there no log files kept somewhere on the server? Why can’t I just access these directly?
Edit I am using PuTTy with SSH, but I’ve also used the console in VMware and I get the same regardless.
