    New user building site hosted by register.com wanted to add blog. Uploaded via cPanel wordpress earlier version and it worked, but I immediately read on wordpress.org that I should install new version 2.8. I followed wordpress.org detailed steps but cannot even run install script now and get 500 Internal Server error with a 404 thrown in. Tried all solutions I understood on forums with many reattempts but no progress. Exact msg: Apache/2.2.11 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.11 OpenSSL/0.9.8e-fips-rhel5 DAV/2 mod_auth_passthrough/2.1 mod_bwlimited/1.4 FrontPage/ Server at http://www.foreclosureamigos.com Port 80. I know I am in over head, but really want it to work...anyone? Feel free to direct me to nearest lake to jump in.

    Why did you try and run the install script on a pre-installed blog? It might be best if you delete all files and the db and started again from scratch.

    Thank you esmi...I was not clear,my fault...when the upgrade did not work (ie received 500 error), I did try and delete all files and db and reinstall the latest version following WP.org detailed steps three times now and error as up above. Perhaps I am not deleting some file that I am supposed to when I do the delete and that is messing it up? But as I cannot even get it to see the install script, I know I am missing something basic. Thank you again...I will take any ideas you have time for.
