Hi, so I am a bit of a novice, so I hope someone can help me.
I am suddenly getting an Internal Server Error (quite common I think):
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
Please contact the server administrator, (suggested email) 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.
Here’s what I have done:
1.my googling told me that it might be a .htaccess file issue. so I have renamed the .htaccess via ftp and the error goes away (and wordpress tells me to make the file writeable)
2.If I then navigate in the wordpress dashboard to settings/permalinks, wordpress will sometimes automatically rewrite a new .htaccess file and everything goes down again.
3. I did have the http://url/sample-post/ permalink option selected, I have since changed it to no avail.
4. I have looked at the content of the .htaccess file, the top half looks like my googling tells me it should look, but it is followed by # BEGIN HTML5 Boilerplate , and then a whole lot of text.
5. also the only error_log file I can find via ftp is in the wp-admin folder and the content does not list any error during the time period I have been having errors.
I am not sure what to do/try next. If I remove my rename of the .htaccess file I can’t work on my site, cant even log in.
PLEASE HELP kind people!!
