Installation error: 500 Internal Server Error
We are trying to install C5 on a domain on our VPS. We can get to the initial installation screen, and all the requirements are good. But, when we click the install button, it runs, and then we get a 500 Internal Server Error.
We have checked if mod_rewrite is available, and it is being loaded just fine.
We have C5 running on 2 other domains on this VPS, so we are very puzzled why it will not install on this domain.
The installer seems to make tables in the database, and also puts some items in the files/ directory.
I looked in the error.log and it has this in there:
Premature end of script headers: index.php, referer:http://ourdomain.com/index.php/install/-/configure/...
Any ideas or suggestions on what could be wrong? Any help is greatly appreciated!

It's a shame that 5.4 has been out since April and it has this installation problem in it.
I'd check the error log and see if that can shed some light.
Other than that, I can't offer much help.
Could you fix it?
For me a fresh installation doesn't works since 5.5
I hope you got your install problem sorted. I had a similar issue - the install would get as far as 'setting up dashboard' where it would seem to hang and then crash with the 'Internal Server Error'. I eventually fixed this by increasing the script timeout in php.ini
max_execution_time = 180
<?php phpinfo(); ?>
Hope you find something.
