Check for errors in the httpd log file (typically /var/log/httpd/error_log).

So you don't have to enter your credentials every time, create /root/.my.cnf 
permissions 700:
^^Use the real root password.

Check to see if the install program created any tables:
mysql gallery3 -e 'show tables;'

You should create a separate login for the gallery3 user and grant it
privileges.  root should only be used for administrative stuff.

Make sure MariaDB's logging is turned on:
mysql -e 'set GLOBAL general_log=ON;'

Re-run the web installer using the new user instead of root.  Then check
the MariaDB general.log to see if that user was allowed access.

Hello, Everyone

Until recently, I had been successfully running Gallery3 on Fedora 23.  I just did a full install of Fedora 27 (which now has all available updates installed) and I am having difficulty getting Gallery3 set up.  The web based installer starts as expected, with options to configure a location to store images at, and to set up a MYSQL database.

I created a MYSQL database using the following commands:

mysqladmin -uroot create gallery3

mysql gallery3 -uroot -e"GRANT ALL ON gallery3.* TO root@localhost IDENTIFIED BY 

But when I click "Continue", the page just goes blank, with no indication as to 
what went wrong.

I will gladly provide all additional information that you require.

I have downloaded Gallery3 from their SVN repo.  I have also tried with the RPM 
from the Fedora repo.

Kind of funny... The reason that I waited as long as I did to upgrade from Fedora 23 to 27 is because I didn't want to risk failure in setting up Gallery3.

Another thing: I don't believe that Gallery3 is being developed any more, and the official support forum appears to have been dead for a few years, which is why I bring this here.

Thank you,

Steven P. Ulrick
