500 Internal Server Error trying to install c5 in root directory.

Permalink
Hi everyone, I'm receiving an internal server error trying to install concrete5-8.5.1 on a subdomain of mine. Any idea on how to fix? I'm using Bluehost.

try placing a simple phpinfo.php or 'hello_world.php in that directory and visiting it. It looks like server configuration rather than a c5 install glitch.

Thanks John, I'll give this a shot over the weekend.

Hi John, thanks again for the help, indeed—it appears this is a Bluehost problem:https://www.concrete5.org/community/forums/customizing_c5/confirmed....

In case this helps anyone trying to use Bluehost and gets an internal server error on a completely freshinstall (before even starting teh install process):https://www.concrete5.org/community/forums/installation/8.4.4-instal... Bluehost seems to apply the wrong permissions to the root-level files when you unzip using their file manager.

Bluehost has been infuriating the past few weeks with their new Server environment. I got the 500 Internal error and then noticed that, for whatever reason, Bluehost was setting the composer.json, composer.lock, and index.php permissions as 0664 when it should be 0644. Try that and report back.
