Support » Installing WordPress » trying to install WP after uninstalling django, Internal Sever Error?

  • ok so the website 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, 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.
