Hi John,

Are you running the installer as the Apache user? If so, try installing 
instead as a normal user, and importantly in a directory outside of the 
public directories (probably /var/www/kforge isn't the best place)?

The first thing is to sort out the mx.DateTime module, it should really 

After this, we can try to identify the kforge-makeconfig error. But it 
looks like it mostly worked. Try activating the virtual environment, 
then try running kforge-makeconfig directly, and let us know what the 
error is?

Best wishes,
