500 - Internal Server Error

Postby Tbm1113 » Mon Mar 03, 2014 3:33 pm

Hello,

One of my clients site has been down and I can't figur out how to fix the problem. I can connect via ftp but I get this message "500 - Internal Server Error" when I go to the website and administrator. The website is www.minikonlaw.com .

Also I looked at the scripts log and it had a long list of backtrace errors?

Does anyone have a solution for this?

Thank you in advance!

Good evening.
First of all, take a fresh backup!
Then you can connect via ftp and replace the .htaccess file in root directory with a new one from another website which working well.

my site doesn't have a htaccess file in the root but does have a htaccess.txt file, is that the same?

Sorry, As I can see your Joomla is on IIS webserver. So, the file is Web.config

I had this issue come out of nowhere. Turned out to be in the configuration.php. For me, the dbhost was set to localhost, but when i changed it to the ip it worked.

try switching "localhost" to be "127.0.0.1:3306" and see if it helps. This solved my issues
