    This morning, my old version of WP stopped working. When I tried to get to the login page, I kept getting "Error 500" messages. Since I hadn't really done much work it it, I thought, what the heck, I'll start over. So I deleted the DB, deleted all the files, downloaded the newest version (2.9.1) and FTPd all my files, created a DB, did the 5 minute install and voila! It was working. Now, whenever I try to install activate new plugin, I get 500 error again. If I try to install it through WordPress, it says "unpacking files" yet the page has stopped loading and nothign is happening. Help?

    Did this happen last time with the same plugin? If so, that could be the issue - but I can't be sure.

    Go into your FTP and delete any plugins you have added. Then clear your browser's cache/history/cookies. Do you still get a 500 error?

    Hmmm yes it seems to only be with that plugin... I will take it up with the creators of the plugin. Thanks for the tip!
