output of emerge --info

I am trying to install ampache for the first time.  After emerging I installed into my vhost using webapp-config:

webapp-config -h yggdrasil.virt -d ampache -I ampache 3.8.3

In a browser when I navigate to https://yggdrasil.virt/ampache I get a blank page and in the webserver (lighttpd) logs I see:

cat /var/log/lighttpd/error.log

what happens if you su to the webserver user (presumably using --shell=/bin/bash) and run ./ and then php composer.phar in the root ampache folder?
Comment 2 Daniel Nelson 2018-07-03 05:52:22 UTC
I don't have either or composer.phar in the vhost or package directory and I don't see them anywhere using e-file.
Comment 3 Rob Tongue 2019-01-19 23:08:52 UTC
It appears this project is using several dependencies that can be installed with dev-php/composer now.  Not ideal.  I was able to work around it, but this will break if ampache gets upgraded via webapp-config.  I had to mkdir /var/www/localhost/htdocs/ampache/lib/{vendor,composer} - then chown those two new folders to my webserver user.  Once that is done, and composer is installed, you can chown to your webserver user, cd to the ampache dir, and `composer install`.  That pulled in everything that was needed local to the ampache install, and ampache now runs.  

I am not a package maintainer, but hopefully one can sort this out the correct way.  Hope this helps.
