trying to install WP after uninstalling django, Internal Sever Error? (2 posts)

    ok so the website themerionite.org used to be set up on a django framework but we decided we wanted to make the switch to wordpress.
    I went about uninstalling django by deleting that folder off from the File Manager in CPanel.

    I tried installing wordpress into the root by using the Softaculous WordPress installer on CPanel.

    however, when I try to log in via themerionite.org/wp-login.php, the login page shows up fine, but the database (and everything else really) gives me an "internal server error"

    going into the error log gives me

    [Sat Jan 05 12:29:36 2013] [error] [client] PHP: syntax error, unexpected '!' in /home/themerio/public_html/wp-admin/php.ini on line 2

    but I can't find php.ini in the wp-admin folder, even with showing hidden files enabled. what can i do?

    - check with your host if the domain name is configured properly to point to public_html folder
    - It may indicate .htaccess issue. Regenerate .htaccess, and be sure the encoding in your text editor is Unicode No BOM
    - It may also indicate a problem with the configuration on the server. Usually your hosting company tech support can help.
    - it could be problem with the plugins, try resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin.
    - it could be a problem with the theme. Momentarily, try switching to the default twentyeleven theme via FTP by renaming your current theme to rule out any theme specific issue.
    - if these steps don't help, download WordPress again and replace your copies of everything EXCEPT the wp-config.php file and the /wp-content/ directory with fresh copies. This should replace your core files without changing your content and settings in wp-config.php file and the /wp-content/ directory.
