Getting an internal server error

I recently reinstalled rt2 (under the specific user that I had created for
it) and i get apache and mysql started and when I try to go to the rt page
i get an internal server error. I know that this error is very general but
I was wondering what the best way to debug it is. ( i installed rt the same
way I did before and it worked fine before.)
any tips would be nice thanks :slight_smile:

does the apache error-log contain anything useful ?
“500 internal server error” normaly just means that the script didn’t send
the expected headers but instead generated an error-message.
This error-message is sent to the error-logfile of the webserver.

The error msg is as follows.
I figure some permissions are wrong but I cant figure out where. any
suggestions.

I am pretty sure you can fix this by giving your user(apache?) rwx
privileges to the /tmp directories(recursive).
So a chmod 777 might do the trick, but I think that should basically be
what your permissions are set to anyways on /tmp. What are your current
permissions on /tmp?
