HI,

I have apache 2.2, my sql  5.2, php 5 on windows 7 64 bit. Apache working, php working as i have a tester program, but whenever i try and launch the php install it comes back with this error.

Whatever my mysql parameters in wp_config, the browser hangs then comes up with a http 500 error in IE and firefox nothing.

Any pointers?

Thanks.

I took the easy route, rather than installing the components myself, i downloaded wamp, after setting my user permissions a little better it works.
