[resolved] 500 Internal Server Error (5 posts)

    I am trying to install the latest version of WP i.e. 2.9.2 and after I successfully unzipped the folder, I copied the files using FTP to the (shared)host server space. Then I go in to the web browser and try typing in http://www.mysiteblog.com/wp-admin/install.php; but I am given the error "500 internal server error".

    Please suggest as to what could be going wrong, or should I consider installing an earlier version of WP? This is a fresh install and not an upgrade.

    Thank you.

    you do actually type in your domain name in place of mysiteblog correct?

    Also, are you installing to your root, or in a folder?

    well, assuming the file is in the right place..... next bet is to check with your host I would think.... if you just go to http://www.mysiteblog.com does it do anything?

    I am trying to setup a blog, so this was just the beginning. I will try to discuss it with my host.
