New install of Photofolio
Initial siteshaper-install produces a malfunctioning site - only get part of home page, nothing works.
Followed instructions for SQL update and the site is completely broken after that process. Front end and back end access produces same error message
"Error displaying the error page: Application Instantiation Error"
Joomla 3.6
tried PHP 5.3 -> 5.7 no difference

I just tested with a fresh site shaper install labeled "" and it worked fine for me. Running PHP 5.5.17 and MySQL 5.6.17.

I would be sure your server is running these, especially the MySQL, perhaps it needs updating?
