I'm 100% sure its something stupid on my part but I could use some help figuring out exactly what that was.

shinraonline.com -- currently running vb4 w/ vbseo url rewrites
xen.shinraonline.com -- subdomain for me to test out xenforo install.

I'm getting a 500 internal server error message when trying to install however one of the earlier beta's was working great when I did a test install on the same server under a different domain.

Any idea where I should poke around?

Is there anything in the Apache server logs?
A 500 error is "internal server error" so it could be anything.

You could also try enabling debug mode which may shed some more light on it.

Changing the perms to 755 got it working!
