I've tried setting up a blank copy of Moodle on a virtual machine (ScotchBox 3.5) and at first it all seems fine, installer runs through etc. then it gets to the point of creating an admin user and I get "Coding error detected, it must be fixed by a programmer: PHP catchable fatal error"
I can see the setup is creating everything fine in the database and the config is correct too.
I tried turning debugging on but it gives me no more information.
Wondering if anyone else had any joy with a local development version using any other quick VM setup? Or if they even have a working ScotchBox setup?
