Hello Stado,

Here is a link to our guide on how to fix 500 Internal Server Errors.

I'm sorry you were having issues with installing Drupal and other PHP based software. While looking into this for you I see that our Support Team was able to assist you with this issue by renaming a PHP folder which was uploaded to your account. Please keep in mind that PHP is already installed on the server and it is not necessary (nor advisable) to upload a copy of PHP into your account. For more information, please see our article on manually installing PHP software.

I also noticed that you were interested in running OpenPublish with Druapl. Please be advised that the only version the developers have made available on their download page (http://openpublishapp.com/download) is an alpha version of the software. Alpha versions of any software are not intended to be run in live production environments. They are intended for testing and debugging as developers work to create and refine a stable version of an application. I would recommend contacting the developers of the software to see if there is a more stable release for Drupal7. They have a Drupal Group on drupal.org that seems to be the best way to contact them (http://groups.drupal.org/openpublish).

Please let us know if you have any additional questions or need further assistance.
