I’m running into several issues trying to install this on Hostgator’s shared Linux server. I believe the first issue was ensuring that PHP 7.1 criteria was met. The next problem seems to be in the collation. Hostgator says this error is due to the way the Omeka-S application is creating the database. Is that even possible? I see it as a server issue, which I cannot resolve because I cannot access the etc/my.cnf settings to force UTF8. I’ve copied the error text that shows after I try to create the first user. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
There were errors during installation.
