Php_value error in shared hosting

I just tried to initially install the newest version Nextcloud, but I got an “500 internal server error” when I clicked to the “Next” button after the install had finished.

In my error_log, I find three lines concerning this:

[Thu Jul 27 14:44:06 2017] [error] [client …] PHP Notice: Use of undefined constant CURLOPT_CERTINFO - assumed ‘CURLOPT_CERTINFO’ in /home/www/web68/html/setup-nextcloud.php on line 196
[Thu Jul 27 14:44:06 2017] [error] [client …] PHP Warning: curl_setopt() expects parameter 2 to be long, string given in /home/www/web68/html/setup-nextcloud.php on line 196
[Thu Jul 27 14:46:35 2017] [alert] [client …] /home/www/web68/html/nextcloud/.htaccess: php_value not allowed here

The first two lines were already seen on top of the screen where I clicked to “Next”.

I googled after this and searched also here in the forum, but did not find concrete info how to solve the problem.

Maybe my web hoster ( does not allow an installation of a cloud at all? I also tried with Owncloud (but would prefer Nextcloud), but I got the same error.

So “php -r ‘phpinfo();’ | grep -i curl” shows curl is installed and activated?

Yes, phpinfo() (called in a .php file, as I have no terminal access to that shared hosting) shows that curl 7.48.0 is enabled and also some lines with more info about curl.

Hello HB9ERD,
Did you solve this issue? I have exactly the same problem.
