Hi All,
I am getting 500 error while installing silverstripe. And on apache log i am getting following error.
SoftException in Application.cpp:256: File "/home/examwind/public_html/silver/sapphire/main.php" is writeable by group

Please help me.

File "/home/examwind/public_html/silver/sapphire/main.php" is writeable by group

Thats an interesting error message, Is that the only one you get? seems like its more of a security warning than something that worth throwing a 500 error about. But if thats the thing its complaining about then remove the group write permissions. On UNIX then would be chmod g-w sapphire/main.php

Hi Willr,
I did that but its not worked.
This following error i am getting.

"Internal Server Error

Please contact the server administrator, and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

Additionally, a 301 Moved Permanently error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request."

Check your server logs. Should have (hopefully) a different error from last time!

Check your .htaccess.
