    That’s almost certainly due to a PHP error, and errors are not being shown in the browser on your host. I suspect something in config.php is amiss. Can you post the config.php, or look for these common errors:

    • strings must be quoted (like your akismet key if you entered one)
    • your domain name, home and siteurl must all be quoted (due to slashes and colon)
    • possible problem with the table prefix for bb or wp?

    If you have a command line at your host, you can also check the syntax of the config.php file by running:

    php -l config.php

    No syntax errors detected in config.php

    that’s a lowercase L after the php

    Post your config (edit out the good stuff) if you need more help.

    Create a file called test.php and put in it

    <?php

    phpinfo();

    ?>

    If you get a huge page with something on it with loads of information then you have windows installed. Just looking at your 404 pages show that you have a windows server – low change of having php more likely to be asp.
