I installed WordPress on my website this afternoon, and I am getting Error 500 - Internal Server Error on numerous operations. I can't change themes, log-in gives me the error, but then when I try to go to the WordPress directory, it shows me as being logged in.

Hello Gapcares,

Sorry for the problem you're having with the WordPress installation. This is a result of the PHP version setting in your cPanel. It is set to version 5.2 by default. I have changed it to 5.4 on your account. You should be able to use WordPress without any further 500 errors.

If you have any further questions or comments, please let us know.
