I've copied the .htaccess information from the permalinks to an .htaccess file and moved it to the root directory of the site, but after I've done that, I can't do anything. Anything I try to access on the site - the wordpress blog, the wordpress admin, even unrelated html pages - isn't returned, and I get this message:
Internal Server Error
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
Any ideas? What am I doing wrong?
