I'm doing a test installation on the infamous 1and1.com
I've read people having occasional problems, but none of the posts ring a bell for me on this error.
I uploaded everything including the .htaccess files. Set the database info in the db.ini file. I set archive and enclosed to 777 as directed. I went to the home url and *poof* I get this message...
