I just figured out the issue. In the documentation, it states:
"Directories within the storage, bootstrap/cache and public/assets/user directories must be writable by your web server. The files config/database.php and config/app.php must be writable by your web server as well."
If you move the IdeaSpaceVR folder to the root of your site, you have to give apache write access. Here's a link on how to do that.
After giving apache the appropriate permissions, it worked fine!
