500 Internal Server Error

My website http://www.kazaaliter.u2i.org is experiencing a 500 internal error with my host http://www.fateback.com

I am running no CGI scripts so what's the problem?

looks like you've lost your startup page (default.htm, default.asp, index.htm, index.html, ...) try using the http://www.kazaaliter.u2i.org/specificPageName.extension to see if your web still exists on their server ... if so then using an ftp tool take a look at your folder content .. if it's all there and looks good, contact FateBack as to why your startup page is not working ... they may have made a server change and disabled the feature that loooks for given startup pages like the list I gave earlier ...

index.html is still there. I checked it out with WS_FTP and everything's fine.

http://kazaaliter.fateback.com/index.html receives an internal 500

u2i.org is a URL forwarder. I'll get round to contacting them.

If you are using IE goto tools > internet options > advanced- turn off show friendly http errors. Then revisit the page to see the real error.

Sorry I noticed the error after I posted. My idea was for a different type of error.

This sounds like a total server side error.  Is your host using frontpage extensions?  Is it possible for your host to stop and restart your site?

.htaccess files can cause error 500. You might check those if you can.

A 500 error is a friendly error.  Generally, you can view more specific error messages by turning Show Friendly HTTP Messages off.

To do this, in IE go to Tools -> Internet Options -> Advanced -> Scroll down about one page and uncheck the option for "Show Friendly HTTP Errors".

Now reload the page and look for more detailed error message.

The host does not support FP Extensions. I have uploaded an error 404 .htaccess so I'll see if deleting it will work.

I reckon it is a server error. My host has been performing maintenance operations for the past couple of weeks. First the service was totally down and a couple of days ago they were sorting out the FTP service. I went to the homepage and they're sorting the Members area out.

So perhaps it may start working after a while...

Oh yeah, what happened was after the FTP was back up, I uploaded a few HTML files (5) and I checkout the my website and the error appeared

Like I said above, a 500 error IS a server error:
