Support » Installing WordPress » internal server error

  • sorry if this is old news…

    i had wordpress up and running a few hours ago but wanted to change the directory from
    http://www.scrantiques.com/chris/wordpress/
    to http://www.scrantiques.com/chris/

    deleted all the files associated (the whole wordpress folder) and attempted to reinstall in an empty folder ‘chris’

    tried to install like normal – had worked 2 days ago
    but i keep getting internal server errors (500)
    here is where my current install is:
    http://www.scrantiques.com/wordpress/

    i have followed the directions specifically, but no luck
    i have also changed the db prefix (from wp_ to wp2_) thinking perhaps that might help – but it didn’t any help would be appreciated

    The 500 error is being caused by a .htaccess file. Just delete it.

    To move your blog:

    – Login > Options
    – There are two URI’s. Change them to the new location
    – Without doing anything else, use your ftp or cpanel to move the files (or in your case change the directory name from /wordpress to /chris)
    – Now log back into your blog.

    i removed the .htaccess file, and did a complete upload, and wp-confiure – but still no luck

    I see no 500 anywhere on the URL’s above.
    Where are you seeing it ?

    i just got – after the htaccess – i accidentally used a bad install
    retried with a fresh dload
    works like a charm

    now i’m gonna try the move directions
