Help figuring out HTTP 500 Internal Server Error when installing (2 posts)

    I have seen others with this problem when installing, and it seemed to relate to the current verion (3.2.2), so I downloaded version 2.3.3 and have the same error (500) when running the blog/wp-admin/install.php

    Not sure where to look for errors. (which logs, etc.) Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks, Rich

    If you're on a Windows box it could be related to permissions and error logging. I can't find the solution I came across, but what worked for me was commenting out line 163 of wp-includes/wp-db.php

    error_log($error_str, 0);


    //error_log($error_str, 0);
