problem at installation

edited December 2010 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
Here's the link to my vanilla: (error page is here)
here's the phpinfo:
I downloaded vanilla-2.0.16 from this site, read the installation guide, follow the steps:
-create the database and the collation to utf8.
-uploaded the files from Vanilla folder to my site folder.
the only change i made was set the host, name, user e password in conf/config-defaults.php
and at the step 4, i got that 500 Internal Server Error.
any ideia?

    Did you upload the htaccess file?
  • Options
    i dunno, i uploaded the folder from the download.
    only the 'vanilla' folder, not the _MACOSX
    where is this htaccess?
  • Options
    It's a hidden file. It won't copy unless you use a program to show (and select) the file to copy to your webspace. On OSX I use the FTP client Tansmit. It has an option to show hidden files. Otherwise google for "osx show hidden files".
