I am getting this error on the homepage and the admin page after trying to install an extension that failed.

I have attempted the fixes on the other questions, but I am still getting the error.

I have searched the entire site for a maintenance.flag file but it doesn't exist. I have also deleted the session data and cache manually within FTP.

I am still getting this error. Any ideas as to why?

  • I have created the /var/log folder with 0777 permissions but no log files are being created. Jul 18, 2016 at 21:35
