I've got stuck with a first-time Omeka 2.1.3 installation (http://omeka.org/codex/Installation). I've followed steps 1-5. At step 6 I get the message 'Omeka has encountered an error'.
I can't get Retrieving Error Messages to work despite having edited the .htaccess file as instructed and have been unable to Activate Error Logging.
If these instructions don't work, is there another way to retrieve error messages so I can see what the problem could be with the installation?
