Error 500 using 1&1 Hosting | Forum

Gary Jul 16 '15

I'm trying to install Oxwall to one of my sites.

I've FTP'd all of the files up to my site, created a database, but when I visit the URL to kick off the set-up I just get a 500 error page.

I've changed all the file/folder permissions to 755. The .htaccess is:-

Any suggestions on what I can try next?

I've manually added the db details to the config file, and can see a text only version of the site with no images or formatting.

Gary, you can't manually add the details, you need to follow the installation steps, if you get 500 error in the beginning of the installation, seems like your server does not meet our requirements. Please make sure first: http://www.oxwall.org/hosting , mod_rewrite module in particular
