Cant reach install.php

EDIT: Turns out something is at fault with my HTTPS implementation.

Got Librenms running on ubuntu 18.04 using apache2, been following the installation guide and I’m at the step where I need to navigate to the server and run through the GUI setup phase. I’m getting some php error:

<?php

use Illuminate\Contracts\Http\Kernel;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;

define(‘LARAVEL_START’, microtime(true));

/*

*/

if (file_exists(DIR . ‘/…/storage/framework/maintenance.php’)) {
** require DIR . ‘/…/storage/framework/maintenance.php’;**
}

/*

*/

require DIR . ‘/…/vendor/autoload.php’;

*/

$app = require_once DIR . ‘/…/bootstrap/app.php’;

$kernel = $app->make(Kernel::class);

$response = tap($kernel->handle(
** $request = Request::capture()**
))->send();

$kernel->terminate($request, $response);

Validate.php:

Component Version
LibreNMS 21.3.0-75-g40517f695
DB Schema Not Connected (0)
PHP 7.4.16
Python 3.6.9
MySQL ?
RRDTool 1.7.0
SNMP NET-SNMP 5.7.3

====================================

[OK] Composer Version: 2.0.12
[OK] Dependencies up-to-date.
Could not connect to database, check logs/librenms.log.

To be expected that it can’t connect to the DB I guess since I’ve not been through the install.php via GUI yet.

What deviates from the install guide is that I manually had to install php2.4 (since you cant do this via normal measures on 18.04 for whatever reason) using:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt -y install software-properties-common
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ondrej/php
sudo apt-get update
Following installing the required php packages as per installation guide.

And updated mariadb using:

Also I’ve enabled https.

Any tips would be appreciated.

Might want to check Apache and see if it is pointed at the correct php version.

It was an old 18.08 ubuntu server I had setup quite awhile ago, I however used the 20.X guide, so probably why there were some issue. I opted for reinstallation of the OS using 20.X & Nginx which is now running fine.
