[Will, Ushahidi] it looks like your web server might not be configured, which set of instructions are you following and what step are you at/

[Gideon Thande, Ushahidi] i was following the linux instructions..
[Will, Ushahidi] groovy
[Will, Ushahidi] which step are you at?
[Gideon Thande, Ushahidi] Enable writing to the logs, cache, and upload directories
[Gideon Thande, Ushahidi] but shouldn't i at least see an index page?
[Will, Ushahidi] You need to setup the web server and the client first, so if you continue the steps it should take you through the whole process
[Gideon Thande, Ushahidi] so if i continue with the steps i should be able to resolve it..
[Will, Ushahidi] I believe so

[Gideon Thande, Ushahidi] but yo! why is it so difficult to deploy an instance..it should be easier just like before..
[Will, Ushahidi] Well, there are a couple of options to deploy the open source version. You can also use our cloud deployments, here:
https://www.ushahidi.com/plans
There is also a pre-built vagrant box that can be run relatively simply. We're working on creating vastly simplified deployment scripts. Hopefully those will be generally available soon to make the process smoother.
[Gideon Thande, Ushahidi] no i don't want a plan..
[Gideon Thande, Ushahidi] let me just deploy Ushahidi_Web-2.7.4
