Topic: Cannot install 2.4.16

setup recognizes the install directory

but then fails with no default language

PHP Fatal error:  Uncaught Error: The script tried to call a method on an incomplete object. Please ensure that the class definition "language" of the object you are trying to operate on was loaded _before_ unserialize() gets called or provide an autoloader to load the class definition in /accounting/install/

Found that the php 8.1 session path was bad so Front Accounting install could not create a session. Installer now completed successfully.

Re: Cannot install 2.4.16

Php 8.1 is not officially supported by FA.  Php 8 is the last supported version of FA recent.

Would you mind downgrade to 8 if you are not developer. Or if you are developer fix the problem and update the changes to the community to update the core.

Re: Cannot install 2.4.16

Trying to perform a clean install of 2.4.16 on my linux webserver.
The instruction to browse "your_url/account" is incorrect. I had to use "your_url/account/install" to run the installer.
The installer ran, I filled in the fields, then on the next page it displayed a login page with "Admin" as the userid and a row of blobs as the password, then asked me to re-enter the password. Since I had not entered the password on the first line, I had no idea what to type. I did not want to use "Admin" as the userid, so I changed it and entered a new password on both lines. I guess that was a mistake, because I am not able to open FrontAccounting at all. How is this supposed to work?

Check the config file for any relative / absolute urls and for directory separator issues.
State your PHP / MySQL versions.
