For some reason Magento stopped working after i tried installing a attribute. It doesn't show up in var/log, setting init_set to 1 simply gives me a blank page with no error and changing htacess memory limit doesn't work. Disabling the module gives me another error (Invalid backend model specified: 1). What is causing all this?

Config file:




$installer = $this;

$setup = new Mage_Eav_Model_Entity_Setup('core_setup');

$setup->addAttribute('catalog_product', 'countdown', array(
    'group'                 => 'Prices',
    'label'                 => 'Ativar Cronometro Regressivo',
    'type'                  => 'int',
    'input'                 => 'boolean',
    'default_value_yesno'   => 1,
    'class'                 => '',
    'backend'               => '',
    'frontend'              => '',
    'global'                => Mage_Catalog_Model_Resource_Eav_Attribute::SCOPE_STORE,
    'visible'               => true,
    'required'              => false,
    'user_defined'          => true,
    'searchable'            => false,
    'filterable'            => false,
    'comparable'            => false,
    'visible_on_front'              => true,
    'visible_in_advanced_search'    => false,
    'unique'                => false

Check the web server error log. There are certain scenarios where this is the only place that useful error messages are found.
