header line in functions.php producing internal server error.

  • So i was trying to make wordpress work, installed it a few days ago, but after installation i got a 500 internal server error. I couldn’t get past the login screen, and after commenting a line indicated in another of the forum posts i can’t get the main page index.php to display.

    Started going through the code, and got to the functions.php and specifically to the status_header function. Seems that it will display an internal server error when sending the header. In this case this happens with this line:

    @header(“HTTP/1.1 $header $text”);

    Any ideas on why is this caused? I don’t have any .htaccess file, and double checked that the files have the right permissions. If i comment the line above it will display the main page, but im guessing that any other operation that also sends headers will result in the 500 internal server error.

    Any ideas?
