I just tried installing 96 last night with no avail.
I saw the modx page that has the install link and when I clicked it it took me to a blank page...?
I checked the permissions and made sure everything was 777 so as to not have any problems. I added the .htaccess, index.php and index-ajax.php files and created the database before I tried the installation.
FC6 - linux
Has anyone else had this problem or know what the problem may be?
I turned php safe mode off but forgot to restart the apache server for the new configurations.
I have the same issue on one of my hostings... what exactly did solve your problem?
By the way the backend just runs fine!
