505 Error With Permalinks, 404 Error in Default (1 post)

    I just moved my WP installation from a sub directory to my server's root level. This has caused the following errors to result:

    When Permalinks are enabled (as I was successfully using in the sub directory version), I get this error:

    500 Server Error

    A misconfiguration on the server caused a hiccup. Check the server logs, fix the problem, then try again.

    When I disable Permalinks and select Default ugly method, I get this:

    404 Not Found

    The requested URL does not exist.

    However, it does exist. What's more, I can access the Dashboard fine. It's only the public blog that can't be accessed.

    What I've Checked

    1) I followed the instructions for moving an installation as noted here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress

    2) I checked the ability to create/write .htaccess files on my server. It shows properly (I think) as:

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

    3) Also checked that the siteurl and home tables in the MySQL database correctly reflect the root site address and not the old sub directory path.

    4) Double-checked the wp-config.php file has the correct linkages to the database.

    5) Am using a new database (with the old data imported) instead of the old one so there's no issue with table_prefix designation being duplicated.

    6) Also deactivated all plugins without success.

    Any ideas? Thanks in advance for any help!
