hi,I have finished every step written on the install guide ,but can`t open the front website. The backend is ok. And when I change the index.html under the /home/ss/platform/platform-client/server/www/ fold, The index I create works
What can I do to find out the error?
error.log, which you suggest me to look at,show those lines:[Sat Nov 05 18:15:06.784886 2016] [mpm_prefork:notice] [pid 6144] AH00169: caught SIGTERM, shutting down

hi i am trying to set up an amazon EC2 instance as a web server for ushahidi. the problem is that if i select the ubuntu image for my instance, it comes with ubuntu 16, and ubuntu 16 doesn't support php5, whereas ushahidi installation guide says that php7 is not supported by ushahidi. can you please let me know if i should install an older version of ubuntu or will ushahidi work with php7?

also can i run ushahidi on amazon linux?

thanks

[David Losada, Ushahidi] Theniq, you’ve got several options:
[David Losada, Ushahidi] sanqian, how does the front website fail to open with the original index.html? .. Those log lines you pasted are ok, not errors really
