Can't Install Theme – Internal Server Error

    So I installed WordPress onto my website yesterday. Tried playing around with it today, and attempted to install a different theme. I tried to do it through the FTP, but that didn’t work. It just doesn’t load. So I tried to upload it, and it gives me a 500 Internal Server error. Apparently GoDaddy has issues like this, so I call them and ask what I could do to fix this. They tell me they can’t help me because the error is on WordPress’s end. They told me to uninstall whatever I installed… even though I informed them I can’t even begin to install anything because of the server error.

    So I’m kind of perplexed and stuck. I’m not sure what I have to do to make it work. I don’t understand why there would be an error in the first place when I’m JUST starting to tinker with it.

    You might check to see if they can tell you more specifically what is causing the Internal Server Error. That would help better pin down whether it’s a WordPress issue or an issue with your hosting provider.

    Well I told them how would I know whether it was a wordpress issue, or a GoDaddy issue, and the guy I talked to went to my site and saw that it was up, said it’s obviously not a GoDaddy issue because my site was working fine.

    Not the most deductive way to find an answer I know.
