That looks accurate. Let me see if I can grab a copy and reproduce the problem.

I got curious and installed a copy of it on my server, went through no problem. A suggestion: try it with the path set to just /home/username/domain/TCExam and see what that does.

Did what you suggested. No luck. Still a 500 Internal Server Error. Grasping... an ownership or permissions problem?

I don't think so. All I did was just straight unzip and run the install script, no changing of permissions.

Did you install this on a similar dreamhost server?

Did you have the install script create the database or did you do it in advance?

All the DH servers are, to my knowledge, pretty similar. And I went ahead and created the DB myself. I don't think DB users have create permissions, so you pretty much have to do that step via the panel.

Well thanks for the help. I don't get it and DH itself won't provide any direct support right?

Contact them and see. Since I think it might be a server issue, they might just help you out. Point them to this thread if you need to.

I hit up the TCExam discussion forum and they returned with this:

"This means that you haven't properly set the files permissions. Try to change the files owner/group to match the Webserver user and set all files permissions to 777.
After installation change the file permissions as described on the installation guide on http://www.tcexam.org"

Anyone know the name of the 'webserver' user on crush? Assuming that DH would use the same webserver name on other similar servers, what is the webserver user name on your server? How/where would I look to find out what it is on my server 'crush'? Thanks!

If you're running PHP as CGI, which DH recommends, the webserver runs under your username to maximise security. So the PHP scripts TCExam needs are running as you. Therefore, when you upload and unzip the files, you shouldn't have to change anything.
