everything was good, this morning i turned on static pages and have since turned them off now i get a internal 500 error if i try to go anywhere. After searching around support I found a few other mentions of this and tried deleting my .htaccess file. When I do everything works except my permalinks. When i go to admin and try to click on rewrite permalinks it instantly gives me a internal 500 error again. I have been running this install of wordpress for around a year. I have no idea where to look. I've checked permissions and they seem fine. If i look in the error log it says:
[Fri Mar 25 19:16:06 2005] [alert] [client 126.96.36.199] /home/forgott/forgottenvoid.com/.htaccess: RewriteCond: cannot compile regular expression '-f'\n
[Fri Mar 25 19:16:06 2005] [alert] [client 188.8.131.52] /home/forgott/forgottenvoid.com/.htaccess: RewriteRule: cannot compile regular expression '^archives/category/(.+)/(feed|rdf|rss|rss2|atom)/?$'\n
So the .htaccess file is getting refilled but with an error.
