    I think this is host related. Do you get the same error when trying to activate other plugins? Is DW removed from the plugin list after the error 500 or does it remain in the WP plugins list?

    Hello Qurl

    I have exact same problem here.

    It does not do this with other plugin. DW was working fine before I moved the installation to another host / Server. I deleted the default install on new server, copied my files onto new server, restore database and then I did a find and replace.

    DW gave errors on save. I then deleted DW and try to reinstall. Then comes the 500 error. Tried 1.5.3 version as well. Same error.

    [Tue Mar 13 00:03:35 2012] [error] [client 196.215.57.95] File does not exist: /home/louddtnh/public_html/clients/500.shtml, referer: http://dev.louddeveloper.co.za/fox/wp-admin/plugin-install.php?tab=upload

    Any ideas?

    Thanks for your help.

    Qurl is the name of my company, so no harm dome... ;)

    Can you check with your hoster to see if you have CREATE rights on MySQL?

    Hello Jacco

    I was troubleshooting this with the hosting provider. We found the problem.

    The problem was with the max upload length setting on Apache was too low. I have increased the MaxRequestLength value to 15MB (was 13) and now it installs perfectly.

    Thanks again.
