500 error after trying to launch a mod exteral install file

Post by Jackson413 »

i am trying to install the phpBB blog mod onto my site. the installation is successful, except for the fact that i cannot launch the external install file. the file is in the right place, however i get a 500 internal server error instead of being able to install the file. this happens for every mod i try to install now. what should i do?

There is no MOD support in this forum, you should seek help in the support topic for the MOD.

If it happens with all mods, I would say the problem is caused by incorrect permissions of the uploaded files. You can check your error log for the exact reason for the ISE.

Try changing the permissions to 755 and see whether this resolves the problem. You may want to contact your host and ask about their file permission restrictions.
