Summary0023103: Installation redirects to non-existent URI

I have successfully installed mantisbt on my debian test server. However, when I tried to install on my production RHEL server, it doesn't work. It attempts to redirect from mantis/admin/install.php to mantis/admin/core/install.php, which then 404s. The server shows it is trying to redirect to the non-existent site. If I copy everything into the core directory since it is thinking to use it, I get error 500 instead.

Steps To Reproduce

Use RHEL 7 x64.
Use PHP from the non-standard channel to use the newer version
Extract tarball into /var/www/html
Go to http://localhost/mantis/admin/install.php
It fails.

Additional Information

I have on forums, but nobody seems to want to care or help.

TagsNo tags attached.

Use RHEL 7 x64.

Can you provide step by step instructions to reproduce it on CentOS?

Use PHP from the non-standard channel to use the newer version

Do you get the issue when using the standard PHP?

I am using php 5.6 which is a non standard version with RHEL 7.
I am unable to reproduce on Centos, I used it in a virtual machine and it installed fine.
I was able to install by making a symbolic link core from within the admin folder.
However, the css did not load for admin, and while it did populate the database tables, it added _mantis as a suffix and it was expecting suffix _table, which forced me to rename all the tables from within the database in the mysql console.

This is what I have:

[root@nj-way-intranet:/var/www/html/mantis/admin]# rpm -qa | grep php

As a first step I recommend to compare the Apache configuration of your CentOS and RHEL installations.
Especially have a look at any Rewrite or Redirect configuration in httpd.conf.

This seems not to be a bug or feature request for MantisBT (you are asking for help on how to deal with configuration problems of your web server). I am therefore resolving this issue as "no change required".

Please use the forums to get support on customizing and using MantisBT (refer to for links and further details).

Feel free to reopen the issue if you finally find that Mantis is dealing wrong with a Webserver / PHP configuration that should work.
