Hi there,

What I could suggest here is, before uploading the script, make sure to follow this tutorial here on how to setup Apache, PHP and MySQL on the server:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-linux-apache-mysql-php-lamp-stack-on-ubuntu-22-04

After that, you can upload your script, and follow the setup instructions from the vendor.

If you are still seeing any errors, I would recommend checking your error logs for more information rather than the generic error that you are seeing in your browser.

For example, you can check your Apache logs by running the following:

tail -100 /var/log/apache2/error.log

Feel free to share here logs here too.

Best,

Bobby
