Really struggling getting a 2nd wordpress install on my home server.
I have one installation set up and working as the Default Web Site. I created a second site for the new blog and meticulously copied the permissions from the old to the new.
Quick test of http://www.jeffhorak.com/index.html - it works!
Next, using root, I created a new MySQL database for my wordpress user.
I logged in to myPhpAdmin with my wordpress user and verified I could see and manage the new database.
Next, I updated my wp-config.php with new info at http://www.jeffhorak.com/blog/wp-config.php
Finally, I tested that php worked by dumping phpInfo() at http://www.jeffhorak.com/index.php
So - I'm thinking things are going to work. I was wrong.
Navigating to http://www.jeffhorak.com/blog/wp-admin/install.php does nothing. Looking at the IIS logs I see:
2011-11-16 01:39:57 W3SVC654224070 192.168.2.100 GET /blog/wp-admin/install.php - 80 - 126.96.36.199 Mozilla/5.0+(Windows+NT+6.1;+WOW64;+rv:8.0)+Gecko/20100101+Firefox/8.0 500 0 0
The last three numbers indicate a crash somewhere. Hmmm.
Anyone have experience debugging these kinds of problems? If I had to guess IIS is up to no good, but I'd rather not move to Apache because I'm hosting other stuff too.
Thanks in advance,
