I've had no problem installing WP several times on live webservers but I'm having problems doing it on my local machine for an intranet.
After install I can see the admin side of things no problem and everything seems to work fine, but when I click on view site I get a 500 internal error.
So I've opened up wp-blog-header.php which seems to be the start of things and through a process of elimination have edited out the line calling the wp() function.
At this point I can see the front page of the site but it shows up the following error in several pages:
Warning: extract() expects first argument to be an array in c:\apache\htdocs\intranet\wp-includes\functions.php on line 2130
Any ideas welcomed.
