Is there anything in the ACP server error logs?

Also in the Apache logs?

Which language pack are you trying to install?
At which point does it error? Immediately, or some time after the templates have started rebuilding?
Nope there isnt anything in the ACP server error logs, havent checked apache.

I'm trying to install the turkish pack.
When I select the file and click the import button this error shows up, yes wrongly I started rebuilding for once. :)

A 500 error is quite generic and can mean any number of things.

We need a bit more to go on.
The Apache logs for example.

Is your installation unmodified?
Or do you have any add-ons installed?

I can't test the language pack as I don't have a copy of it.

Didn't you open a ticket?

Just add the details of this error to it; it's most likely related to the other one.

You may want to consider putting your forum in debug mode:

In /library/config.php file place this line: $config['debug'] = true;
