Hello Cristian (sorry for name's mistake),

check if exif php extension is installed in your server, if you have previous release to 1.1.4. All php extensions needed are in installation instructions.

Yes, these are installed .. I had also installed other versions of Mahara and everything worked perfectly

Are you able to access the apache error log for your Mahara install? Are there any messages in there?

Failing that, is your site available publicly somewhere, so we could log in and have a look around?

I checked the server  but  exif php extension is not installed. Anybody could tell me what is the role of Exif or where can I find documentation about this extension?

Hi - what version of Mahara are you using? From 1.1.4 onwards, exim is optional, and not having it won't change anything. Which means if you're still having issues, it's not to do with exim. If you are, you definitely need to check the apache error log to see if there are any errors.
