Hi!

As the message says its an "Internal Server Error" so its nothing wrong with the Joomla installation. Likely its related to the .htaccess file. Try to deactivate this file by renaming it to htaccess.txt. Or if you have done any changes in this file you can try to use the old (default) version.

I fixed this by changing my Joomla directory to 755. It was set to 775.

Thank yuo for sharing this.
I got the same problem....

I didnt change host, but my hostingcompany changed server software (ie. the same thing, really).

Seems my administrator folder got 777 after the change and I was unable to login to admin, lol.
everything else on the site worked like a charm ;)

so, one chmod later, yes!
I owe you a beer or something, if you ever come to Norway.

Hey all - I just changed hosting providers due to this issue. I actually developed the site in a temp domain (subdir) of my hosting account and deployed to Network Solutions. Spent many hours troubleshooting to no avail. That - in combination with other issues - made me switch to my hosting provider (hostmonster) where I developed the site in hopes of eliminating the error since it worked in staging just fine. I deployed....and WALLLAHHH....the same error appears!!! (see attached for screen shot).

I am at my wits end with this. I've checked the directory permissions as stated above....still nothing. If I rename htaccess, then my mod-rewrite goes away. This is crazy.

Can someone help me get to the bottom of this?

Just go here and try to register as a new user (on login screen): http://www.jweitzner.com

Guys, i have the same internal error. I use Godaddy Shared Host.
I´ve tried to:
1 - rename .htaccess to htaccess.txt
2 - delete .htaccess (i had edited) and use old original version
3 - change joomla folder from 705 to 755 permission

But i still get the error. But the strange thing is that it´s not all the time. I can install some components, modules and plugins with no issues... but in the same time, when i try others, ramdomly the error appears and i can´t install.
I installed the same Joomla version in my XAMPP and inside my PC server i could install ALL the extensions i wanted to... but when i try to do it online, i get error and error.
The comp i am trying and getting error is "hwdvideoshare" component. My joomla is 1.5.23.
Just to make a test... i could install with no issues the plugins that comes with the component.

Any ideas? I can´t loose all my website already configured... cause u may tell me: "why don´t u upload the XAMPP version with already comp working and import the DB?". Well... i can´t do it cause i´d have to recreate the website inside XAMPP.
And i´d can copy the online website, transfer to XAMPP, import the DB to XAMPP so install the comp, and reupload all to the server... yessssss.... but would be a really big job and would be great to discover what´s the real problem about uploading and installing the component online.

Any ideas?

This maybe something relatively simple that some overlook... The other day, out of curiosity I attempted to host a mysql database on a separate web host from what the site was hosted on. Couldn't even get passed installation without hitting this exact error. Once I set up a new database under the domains host, I was good to go again.

Dear All,

This issue kills!

I have recently changed my hosting provider. Then my fabrik forms page link throwing this issue. I tried all the options. I updated .htaccess to new version also. my joomla version is 1.5.25. Following is my .htaccess file. (I removed some comments lines for quick readability)

--------------
##
# @version $Id: htaccess.txt 21064 2011-04-03 22:12:19Z dextercowley $
##

## Can be commented out if causes errors, see notes above.
Options +FollowSymLinks

Any help. Thanks in advance.
