How am I supposed to install a script?

Usually 99% of the scripts that we have tried before have complete instructions and a special ReadMe file with everything you need to know about installing that script. We recommend you reading the instructions a few times before starting to install the script. This will help you to make less mistakes.

One of the most common errors is "500 Internal Error". The chances are that you will experience it many times. The worst thing about it, is that it doesn't actually tells you what's wrong with the script. It only tells you that something isn't right. There are several possibilities that make up 99% of this error. Here they are:

* Incorrect CHMOD command. Make sure that you chmod directories with 0755 (0777 is not allowed) and files with 0644. You can also get an "Access Denied" error, if you didn't chmod the file or a directory correctly.
* Incorrect path to PERL . See the next question for more information
* Syntax error. Check and see if you didn't accidentally deleted a command or a word that the instructions didn't tell you to.

Basically, 500 Internal Error and Access Denied are 99% of errors you'll experience. And 99% the cause of the error, will be one of the above.

 Also, make sure you check our 1-click web app installer (Login and scroll to the very bottom of the cPanel) that provides the simplest way to instantly install 325+ top web applications.
