[Resolved] Secure HTACCESS File : 500 internal server error

  • Hello,

    I installed Bulletproof security .47.9 on my self-hosted WordPress 3.4.2.

    I wanted to activate the Bulletproof security mode, so I cliked on the AutoMagic button to generate the secure htaccess file. Then I activated the Bulletproof mode -> 500 internal server error.

    I tried on a localhost server (WAMP) with the same wordpress and it worked. I don’t know what to do. I’ve read others topics here about 500 errors but it didn’t help me. My site is not on a subdomain or a subdirectory.

    If you could help me, it would be nice. Thank you.
    Best regards

    Most likely your web host does not allow you to use the Options directive in htaccess files. Please see the forum link below for the solution. Also there are a couple of other things that can cause a 500 error, but look at this help section first – 500 Internal Server Error After Activating BulletProof Mode for your Root Folder

    Thanks for your help.
    I commented out the “Options -Indexes” line but it does not work.
    Still the 500 internal server error.

    Do you know what else could cause such an error ?

    Do you have cPanel?
    Which web host do you have?
    What is your Server type? Linux or Windows or something else?

    Also some web hosts do not allow this htaccess directive.

    DirectoryIndex

    Try commenting that line of code out.

    It worked ! I commented out the DirectoryIndex line.
    Thank you 😉

    Operating System: Linux.
