[resolved] Can't log into my site! 500 internal error (5 posts)

    (First, let me note that I am still learning the ropes in WordPress -- so please bare with me.)

    I am currently updating my website (www.angelaprodesign.com), and I wanted to redirect visitors so they wouldn't be able to see my site while it's under construction. As I was trying to figure out how to redirect, I changed both my "WordPress Address (URL)" and my "Site Address (URL)" in the General Settings panel in my WordPress dashboard from: "http://angelaprodesign.com" to "http://angelaprodesign.com/404", thinking it may just display an error page when visitors try to visit my site.

    Well, now, when I try to log into my site via angelaprodesign.com/wp-admin, I get this error message:

    Internal Server Error

    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

    Please contact the server administrator, webmaster@angelaprodesign.com and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

    More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

    Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
    Apache Server at angelaprodesign.com Port 80

    I have no idea what to do, and I can't access my website at all! :( Help please!

    You'll need to change those back using one of the methods in this article - I like the functions.php file method -


    If you don't have FTP access to the server set up yet, ask your hosting company for help with that.
