[resolved] installation problem (5 posts)

    After successful installation when I try to log in to the blog for the first time I get that message.

    The server encountered an unexpected condition which prevented it from fulfilling the request.
    The script had an error or it did not produce any output. If there was an error, you should be able to see it in the error log.

    The problem started yesterday after my unsuccessful attempt to upgrade my blog. Since I was not getting anywhere with the upgrade I just decide to start new database and see If I can do brand new installation I did check all the permissions they are all good. The server info is good to. What else I can do where to look to find the problem ? 6 hours since I start working on that I am about to call quits and just get different engine.

    Might need to turn CGI on, or turn PHP on. Ask you host, it might be a very simple problem to solve.

    Just put the script from Finding_Server_Info in your web-root folder and try to browse to that. If you can't see the phpinfo displayed ask your host what needs to be fixed to do that.

    I just solved the problem. In my case I could not have any permision set to 777 and I had to change them to 755. Because of the security issues files with permission set to 777 are automatically blocked by my server provider.

    Thanks for this thread. I just had the same problem after updating to 2.7.1.

    The weird thing is that it ran fine for an hour or so after I did the upgrade, then I got the error message the next day. I reset the permissions on the blog folder (and subfolders and files) to 755 and it seems to be running fine now.
