Error as shown in snip.

Have tried turning on all debugging options.

Have disabled SELINUX.

Have tried chmod -R 777 .

DB creds to MYSQL work fine in cli.

No discernable errors in any Apache logs.

Has anyone seen this behavior? Have any good directions on best way to trouble shoot.

FYI: Apache works fine when pointed to an info.php file with phpinfo ()

Any suggestions would be great.

Thanks, T

PS: server is CentOS 8.1

Thanks, T

  • first of all check file permission and file ownership. In order to work perfectly apache:apache usergroup should own all files of wordpress installation. Also try enabling debug log. Commented Jun 17, 2020 at 18:58
  • Does www-data own all of the wordpress install files?

My apologies for wasting anyone's time. The issue was the machine was a fresh installation and running an old version of PHP FMP...

Once upgraded everything is working great.

Thanks, T
