I have ss2.4 and have installed a few modules including gallery, DOM, event_calendar, user forms.
After I installed newsletter 0.4.0 I get the error

Website Error
There has been an error

The website server has not been able to respond to your request.

when i run /admin or /dev/build

If I remove the newsletter dir, it's fine.

Is there anywhere I can start looking for the problem? Permissions look fine ie similar to other modules.

Get your site out of live mode so we can see the error!

Just doing that (by adding hostname to set_dev_servers) not only showed the error (a field missing, so need to run /dev/build) but also fixed it, in that it wouldn't let me run /dev/build before but instead just errored. I installed lots of other modules already with no probs.

so thanks for the tip

and thanks also for DOM, Gallery, Event Calendar - respect the Cheese =]
