Hi @osusertest2!

  1. Please reset your website: 000webhost cPanel > Settings > General > Reset website - note that this action will remove all your website content, website databases, and will unlink your domain from your website.

  2. Change your PHP version: 000webhost cPanel > Settings > General > Change PHP version > 5.6

  3. Try installing again
