I am trying to update my htaccess to do the following two things:
1. change my permalink structure. I have copy-pasted the mod_rewrite rules to the file, and have gotten the 500 error. I have tried enclosing the RewriteEngine commands in IfModule tags, but it did not help.
2. redirect my old MT files using .htaccess. I keep getting the 500 server error.
I am now changing my .htaccess to its previous state (no redirect or mod_rewrite rules) because right now my site is not accessible. I understand that the 500 error might somehow be connected to my server -Dreamhost.com.
Ideas and help would be appreciated!
