|Summary||0000090: After Installation getting 500 Internal Error Problem with Index Page|
|Description||I uploaded all files to my root directory and there seem to be a problem with the script because there is a problem with the index.php file.|
Has anyone had that problem or is there something wrong I am doing. I re-downloaded and re-uploaded same thind 500 internal error.
Installation instructions extremely confusing and incomplete

It does not appear that index.php is even being accessed
Place the following at the very top of index.php
<------ cut here - don't include this line-------->
// leave the rest of the content from the existing index.php file below this line
Then visit your page and report what you see.
If you do not see a php configuration report, contact your service provider.
|Could be a problem with .htaccess? I have to remove "Options -Indexes" with XAMPP and "AddType .." lines on my server, because apache configuration...|
|I suggest updating documentation to reflect the fact that error 500 is usually result of apache configuration brokenness and suggest log inspection. Attaching patch.|
I think we really need to add a section to the install file "If things don't work". There are now several issues that seem to hit a lot of people.
- Site is temporarily unavailable (incorrect DB settings).
- 4xx file not found (mod-rewrite not working or AllowOverride not using .htaccess)
- 5xx internal error (.htaccess syntax)
- permission errors
I've had some difficulty in writing this because our audience is often people who have no idea what an .htaccess file is and one can easily end up writing a complete Unix and Apache primer. Like how to use nano or vi to edit files, explaining permissions, etc.
I will add your text, but we'll probably then be asked _how_ to inspect Apache's error log and what exactly should they look for.
