Secure Server 500 Error


Recommended Posts

Hi, Ok I installed oscommerce and I thought I had it configured correctly, my hosting account uses a shared SSL, basically it is https://web1.secure-secure.co.uk/jonsmedia.com


The problem is when I try to create an account or go to checkout I get a 500 Internal Server Error - Apache/2.0.50 (Red Hat) Server at web1.secure-secure.co.uk Port 443


Any ideas, because I am stuck here is my configure.php file :-

Erm, many thanks for that, doh!! I see that someone has edited it now, never mind I am in the process of deleting the catalog directory and will reinstall with a different password when I work out how to use this program correctly, I think I may be in a little over my head here so I will come back after I have learnt a bit more about what I exactly need.

Have a look at your .htaccess file permissions... These are set in an apache webserver in a file called access.conf


If you don't have access to this then ask your host. I am trying to solve another problem which gives that Internal server error and I have just this second read something on the apache.org website which pointedthe finger for this error at .htaccess errors







ps: .htaccess files are hidden by default using ssh unless you select 'view hidden files'. i don't think you can see them using ftp programs
