I am a very very new linux user and I have somehow managed to install debian gnome onto a machine on our network and using apt-get i've installed apache2 with php5.

I can access my website over the network via an IP ( And I get the standard 'It Works!' page.

Now I wanted to install some kind of configuration panel, and after looking through them I decided GNU Panel would be okay. It seemed to have a lot of features. So i've been through the install process, and now, My original page ('It Works') has been changed to a grey page with a table in the middle of it (no text, except for the tag - 'Stats') and when I try and access the address, it routes me to: but that simply produces an internal server error. If I try and go to localhost/admin/ on the debian machine itself, It tries to take me to the above address (/admin/gnupanel-admin.php) but I just get a blank page instead of the internal 500 error.

Can anyone please provide some insight as to why this is happening.
