Hello there!

I just found out about this project, downloaded the latest stable, and followed the description. So now my config looks like this:

client = '/usr/bin/git'
default_branch = 'master'
repositories[] = '/home/ingwie/git/'

debug = false
cache = true

; If you need to specify custom filetypes for certain extensions, do this here
; extension = type
; dist = xml

; If you need to set file types as binary or not, do this here
; extension = true
; svh = false
; map = true

As you can see when opening it will give you a 500 error. How can I figure out what is going on here?

OS: Debian 7
PHP: PHP 5.5.4 (DotDeb build) w/ curl, mbstring, yadda, yadda
Git: Latest, just installed

Any help would be awesome. ^_^

Regards, Ingwie.

I hope changing 

[app]debug = true 

will help you see what is wrong.

I tried, but it didnt change anything. Fun fact, if I enter a wrong value, like for the git repos, then i do see the error message, so it must be soemthing more inside the core. Some PHP errors lead into 500. Debugging these is kinda hard.
Anything else I can try?
