Hello everyone.
I have tested all the proposals you have suggested in this topic.
Nothing has worked and received 500 internal server error on any adjustments that are in this topic.
Found another solution that worked for me and maybe for you that no proposal has helped.
Had trouble with 2 pieces sites but now it is corrected and everything works as it should.

I changed to the following in the .htaccess file:

From:
# RewriteBase /

To:
RewriteBase /

Small adjustment, but works fine for the problem that I have received on these sites..

Hope it works out for you who have not found a solution yet!

before you start chmodding etc, make sure your template is correct. 500 can also happen if there is some bad coding/php error in your index.php. That was the case for me anyway.

use phpcodechecker.com for example and run your entire index.php trough it to eliminate errors.

Are you all aware that Joomla 1.x is dead for over 8 years?

whenever i tried to install template on my joomla website, the installation was not successful, instead i receive this message "The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator at webmaster@cremchurch.org 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.

Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request." please i do i resolve this

I think that you did not read this viewtopic.php?f=268&t=296527&start=30#p3389465 .
Joomla moving ahead, php and mysql too. I think it s time for migration.

Hi,

that's great its working fine now.

.htaccess file can be also one reason for 500 error

Hello...

It is easy, Just delete the .htaccess file from the public_html or renamed to _.htaccess or .htaccess1 any thing then make refresh to your site sure it will working again.

This is not a solution. What about if anyone wants to use Use URL Rewriting? If the 500 error is from .htaccess then he must find in the content of the file what is the code that gives this error. He han take a fresh htaccess.txt and rename it to .htaccess and after he can check the content that he have in the old .htaccess .

Correct the good way to test each .htaccess rule by commenting them one by one and checking which exact rule is causing the issue and accordingly finding the solution for the same.
