Support » Fixing WordPress » No changes, but Internal Server Error – How can I fix it if I can’t login?

    My blog’s homepage and admin page (and presumably all pages) shows “500 Internal Server Error”. I have made no changes to the blog, not even a post, in 3 weeks. Everything else on my website, including other database-using software applications, and a 2nd wordpress installation, still work fine. How can I access the blog if I can’t login? (I can use FTP/SecureFTP to make changes, but I don’t think FTP can help me assess what I need to change, if anything.) How can I diagnose what is causing the Internal Server Error?

    (Before posting, I searched the forums for various combinations of some or all of the keywords:
    diagnose / access / login / internal server error
    I read several internal server error posts, but none pertained to my case. Can you help?)

    Should I specify my blog address or not?
    I won’t make it an active link, but I will post it in case it helps with diagnostics. imagiscape.ca/blog

    SOLUTION CREATES NEW QUESTION:
    – Somehow a week ago my htaccess file somehow had part of the contents duplicated. Once I removed the duplicated part, it was fine. But how did it self-duplicate?

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

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

    # END WordPress
