I'm getting an Internal Server 500 error

An Internal Server 500 error message looks like this:

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.Please contact the server administrator at webmaster@localhost to inform them of the time this error occurred, and the actions you performed just before this error.More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

This error is usually triggered for one of the following reasons:

  • Server misconfiguration (httpd.conf)
  • .htaccess configuration issues
  • mod_security or similar issues

Contact your web host provider or server administrator for help.
