I have just installed Mahara 17.10 on mac osx10.9.5 running mamp pro with php myadmin 4.4.10. When I try to connect to localhost/mahara I get a blank screen and nothing happens i.e. I don't get the option to install.
I have configured the database through php myadmin4.4.10 as utf8_bin
The privileges are set as user = mahara / host = localhost / type = database-specific / privileges = ALL PRIVILEGES / Grant = Yes
I don't have any tables in the database.
Can anybody advise on a troubleshooting process
See below for config.php file;
SyntaxEditor Code Snippet
<?php // Mahara configuration file unset($CFG); global $CFG; $CFG = new stdClass(); $CFG->dbtype = 'mysqli’; $CFG->dblibrary = 'native'; $CFG->dbhost = 'localhost'; $CFG->dbname = 'mahara’; $CFG->dbuser = ‘mahara’; $CFG->dbpass = ‘mahara’; $CFG->prefix = 'mhl_’; $CFG->dboptions = array ( 'dbpersist' => 0, 'dbport' => '', 'dbsocket' => '1', ); $CFG->wwwroot = 'thishasbeenremoved'; $CFG->dataroot = '/Applications/MAMP/data/maharadata'; $CFG->admin = 'admin'; $CFG->directorypermissions = 0777; require_once(dirname(__FILE__) . '/lib/setup.php'); // There is no php closing tag in this file, // it is intentional because it prevents trailing whitespace problems!

I have also created the Applications\mamp\data\maharadata directory

The config.php information you posted looks to be a Moodle config file
Mahara and Moodle have some similar configuration elements but Mahara does not have a lib/setup.php file.
To make a config file for Mahara begin by copying the htdocs/config-dist.php to htdocs/config.php and fill in the required details.
Then look in htdocs/lib/config-defaults.php to see if there are any settings you need to override.
Also please note that it is recommended to run Mahara17.10 on ubuntu/linux rather than osx as it is more fully integrated/tested with that operating system

Should I install on ubuntu server or ubuntu desktop.

If you are installing Mahara on a server, I would say that Ubuntu server would be the better option as it contains server-related packages. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ServerFaq#What.27s_the_difference_between_desktop_and_server.3F
