    Trying to install Arrowchat and getting to the database config, I see:

    I have tried just about everything I know to do. Any suggestions on trying to hunt down why a 500 is coming up?

    So you don't think the 500 error could be anything on the server side? Anything I could check for maybe? I don't see any errors in nginx logs or the domain error logs

    Turns out that this junk plugin isn't compatible with PHP 7 - Dropped down to 5.6.15 and it worked just fine. Clients happy and I'm happy (y) Thanks for the help @eva2000 !

    Guess that answers your questions, you're lucky it works with PHP 5.4 let alone PHP 5.6 !
