I have gone through countless threads but none of them seem to work. Here is what I have done so far:
Blog was hosted on http://www.bisonsridehard.com/home which I tried moving to the root.
Before I did that I changed the WordPress URL and Site URL as mentioned in http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress
I had changed the index.php earlier which I changed back to the original settings. Set the permissions of the .htaccess file to 666 as mentioned in the codex.
But I have been getting the Internal Server 500 Error. I understand that this is an issue with the .htaccess file from all the threads I have read.
I am at this point unable to login to the dashboard to make any changes but I have full access to the DB and FTP.
