Right, the problem here is that the permissions for all of the files and
directories were set to 700. You need to change the permissions to whatever is
appropriate for your current setup, like giving ownership (or group permission)
to the Apache user.

Correct, for a "clean" install of Eventum, the config file that is included from
pretty much all other scripts will redirect you to the installation screen.
Nothing wrong with that.

I see your point. My advice wasn't really appropriate for people who couldn't
even install Eventum for the first time, which is the case here. Sorry about

Try changing "allow_call_time_pass_reference" to "1", and not "On" or "True".

Everything on the tarball is fine. All you need to do is change the permissions
and fix the php.ini directive as I explained above.
