http 500 error

I have added powerCMS to a website, but am unable to get this to work. I have uploaded the files but when trying to access the login page in my browser I just get http 500 error. Would you mind having a look to see if you can figure out what i am missing;
One of the pages i´ve tried to access is index.php
Here are the ftp details in case you want to have a look:

Thanks

I removed your FTP credentials from your post because this is a public forum and you never know what malicious behavior someone might be up to.

I did take a quick look for you to see if i had any ideas, and the first thing i noticed is your database connection file has not been set up yet. Without your connection to the PowerCMS database, you are going to have issues.

Try resolving that issue and see if it gets you further along.

Here's some instructions that you may find useful:

I had already set up the database connection file, without success; the reason why it was empty now was that I removed all files and then downloaded them again from this website to make sure they were not messed up somehow, and this time I forgot to add the information to this file. Still, I thought I should be able to view at least part of the content of the files, even if I did mess up with the connection information?
Even so, I tried adding the connection details again, just as I did before, and this time it seems to be working... Strange, but I suppose one of the files must have been corrupted one way or another... Thanks anyway!

Glad to see you got it working! Configuring PowerCMS 1 is a tricky process and can take some figuring out.

We've definitely smoothed this process out with PowerCMS 2 now that it has a Installation Wizard to handle the database work and WA_Globals settings for you.
