Hi David,

I am not sure if I can be of help here but I actually just got Drupal
7 up and running like yesterday. I was having a very similar issue
installing Drupal 7. After setting up the database and stuff I would
go ahead and when it was suppose to be configuring the site the page
would go white. Then, if I tried to reload the site in my browser it
would have a weird Drupal looking home page that was asking me to log
in but I hadn't created an admin user yet. I would try and create a
user and it would say something to effect of "please contact the
admin." I googled it for a while and found that it may be some issue
with the PHP max memory. I couldn't figure out how to resolve this by
myself because I'm a total NOOB so I consulted the fine folks at
Laughing Squid, my host. All that needed to be done was to add to the
.htaccess file (which is hidden) a line like this: php_value
memory_limit 64M. If you are not a noob like me then all this
information is superfluous but I'm a bit of a long winded noob so bare
with me here. You may have another issue than my particular issue so
before they helped me with this they turned on PHP logging to find out
exactly what was hanging up the install. I believe Laughing Squid is
using Apache so hopefully it is similar to Nginx. I was so frustrated
at first I tried installing Drupal 6 and it worked perfectly. The
default PHP max memory on their servers is 8M so apparently Drupal 7
needs more than 8M. I hope this helps you out. I was very excited to
get it working and Drupal 7 looks all fancy and new.

I should probably try and be more succinct with my emails because they
always end up being really long and people probably barely make it
half way through them but I just can't help myself. Also it's 4:20 in
the morning and I'm loopy.
