I'm just starting with WP and did a Fantastico install but first time in admin I saw there was a version upgrade to 2.3.2 so I downloaded the new version, unzipped it and uploaded it following instructions on WP. It appeared to install just fine. I changed the theme and that went OK. Got rid if the Hello World post and put in my own first post. So far so good. Went to install plugins and I see there is a new version of Akismet, so following instructions I uploaded it and got the key and it appeared to be OK. I uploaded another proprietary plugin and it seemed to install OK. Went to post to a page and when I hit publish the whole thing disappeared. I cannot log in or view anything at my site's URI. I am getting server errors:
Internal Server Error
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
Please contact the server administrator, firstname.lastname@example.org and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.
More information about this error may be available in the server error log.
Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
Apache/2.2.6 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.6 OpenSSL/0.9.8g DAV/2 mod_auth_passthrough/2.1 mod_bwlimited/1.4 FrontPage/220.127.116.1135 Server at www.mysite.com Port 80
but the error logs show no errors. I have written to the host, I came back to WP and followed the list of "Try This" but still only get server errors when I type in the URI either for the site or the admin login. I renamed both plugins in case one of them was the problem. I really would like to use WP but I am very tempted to stick with HTML that I know inside and out. I read as much as I could over the past two weeks regarding setting up WP so I felt comfortable in getting started but not anymore.
