Succesfull installation ends in 503 errors

Directadmin server with installatron installed latest typo3 version for me. No problem
Made a first page, set it to root (took some time, last time I did this is about 10 years ago).
Edited the site configuration.
And when I hit view, I get a page with 503 error saying something is wrong with site configuration.
The logfile also gives this error:
|Core: Exception handler (WEB): Uncaught TYPO3 Exception: #1705656657: | TYPO3\CMS\Frontend\Page\PageInformationCreationFailedException thrown in file /home/weggeefw/domains/ in line 103. Requested URL:

No idea where to go from here. Hope someone can help.

NB: I have a simple user account on a directadmin server, no ssh, no composer.

Hi Eef!

It looks like your host does not have the ´exec()´ function enabled on the server. This can often be turned on in your hosting control panel.

I checked (and send a message to admin of server): Seems you are right here looking at php-settings, I see this:
