I am trying to get Omeka 2.8 Classic to run in Azure containers. I have a web service app that runs a Debian variant with Apache and all of the require pre-reqs (although PHP is 7.4). The database exists in a separate app service container running MySQL 5.4 (I had to disable ssl to get it to work).
The Omeka install fails with no details. When I click the Install button a second time it seems to work, but ultimately once I turn on the dev environment I can see that it’s trying to use db tables that don’t exist. So the install didn’t actually complete.
Is there anything I can do to get Omeka to work in this environment? Is it a problem with PHP 7.4 that needs downgraded? Hopefully it’s a fix within the Omeka code so I don’t have to use old PHP. Any help would be appreciated.
