SOLVED: How to Fix 500 Internal Server on WordPress

Sunday, March 15th, 2015

WordPress users are too familiar with this message.

Internal Server Error
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, …..  and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.


Apache/2.0.52 (Red Hat) Server at www.shieldsgroup.com Port 80

The reason I get this error is because WordPress randomly writes an .htaccess file into a directory in which it does not work — the / directory.

If that is your problem and you delete it from that folder, using your FTP client, your WordPress blog will work.
