Summary 0000855: During installation after "Database Configuration" step, the page goes blank
Description When we start installation of In-Portal using the URL http://localhost/in-portal/core/install.php the first page that appears is "Database Configuration", which is step 2 of installation. After entering the information, when we click on "Continue" button, the page goes blank. Debug mode produces no output. The installation platform is WAMP Server 2.0.
Additional Information This issue has been tracked down and the problem is the code "while (($entry = $folder->read()) !== false) {" in the file modules_helper.php, which comes near line 220 (Please check couple of lines above and below). The script quits without informing when a call is made to "$folder->read()", The reason is the it is trying to enumerate the directory named "modules", which does not exist after the default installation. This may be some internal exception or something else but the issue can be easily resolved by creating the directory named "modules" in the root folder.
Tags No tags attached.

Thank you for well documenting the issue you are experiencing!

After looking into this I can say that modules/ folder should always present in default (or any) installations even if there are no modules installed.

As you probably noticed we are using built-in PHP dir/read mechanism here ( ) which means that there might be some issues with PHP Windows version when folder doesn't exists and you trying to refer to it via object notation.

Please remove modules folder from your file system at first and then try to add IF checking if folder before "while" and closing it after $folder->close();

if (is_dir($folder)) {
...current code inside...

Please post your results here.
