Website shows a "500 Internal Server Error"
If your website runs PHP software (like wordpress or joomla), then please read this article about the "500 Internal Error" associated with PHP.
If you get this error while you're not running any script, then it's most likely because of some bad syntax in the .htaccess file.
Try disabling the .htaccess file by renaming it; then, access your website again. If the website works fine without the .htaccess file, then you need to review your .htaccess file content.
