ok – this is probably not a WordPress problem but am looking for ideas anyway…
Trying to set up a site at fatcow – I setup a MySQL db & inserted the appropriate db, name, password & host fields in wp-config.php and uploaded everything to the root dir. When I try to run the install script in wp-admin/install.php, I get the following error –
“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.”
I checked permissions on the wp files ( and changed to 777) but no difference. Any thoughts on why this is failing? I’ve setup WordPress several times now (including on fatcow) and this is the first time I’ve seen this not work…but as I say above, this looks like a fatcow issue…
