Internal Server Error

Hi, I have downloaded Omeka Classic 2.6 and have created a mysql database and uploaded the files into a folder on my server (my web host is iPage). I have followed all the installation instructions, including modifying the db.ini file, but all I get is an “internal server error” when I try to complete the installation. Can anyone help me please?

With some server configurations, you need to go to install/install.php to make the installation work.

You might also check that .htaccess is in the root directory – some file transfer programs ignore files that begin with the dot.

In general, if you’re getting an Internal Server Error page (black text, white background), that’s coming from Apache and you should check the Apache error log, which should tell you with more detail what went wrong.

Not having mod_rewrite enabled is a common cause of this issue.
