    here is where my current install is:

    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

    works like a charm
