Getting this error in the PHP error log file while trying to install craft.

PHP Fatal error: Class 'Craft\DbCommand' not found

The file is there, permissions are granted and I've tried reinstalling twice. Any other ideas?

    Sounds like a file is missing/corrupt. Can you try again with a fresh copy of Craft from buildwithcraft.com?

  • Now I'm just getting a flash of a 500 error in the console on refresh, and then nothing. There's no log anymore either, since I completely reinstalled it.

  • I am, although I'm putting it in a subfolder since I don't want it to be the main site yet. I've done that before and haven't had any issues...

  • Now I got "PHP Fatal error: Class 'Craft\InfoModel' not found" in the php log a twice (but not every time I refresh so I don't think that's the issue anymore. I'm getting "Could not find your craft/ folder. Please ensure that $craftPath is set correctly in .../public/index.php" on the page now. I know the path is correct and the permissions are set to 774.

Even thought this is an old thread, I recently ran in to the same problem. It turned out to be a PHP version issue. I was running MAMP with PHP 7.0.0, once I switched that host to 5.6.10 it worked perfectly.

    Craft is compatible with PHP 7 since 2.5 — are you running an older version? May 26 '16 at 10:37
  • We have a site running Craft v2.3.2620 where I ran into this issue and where this solution worked in resolving it too. Nov 25 '16 at 23:48
