I have Drupal 6.4 installed on a GoDaddy account. The Drupal install has worked great since day one ( a few months now) with Clean URLs enabled. Today i go to the website and i get an error message that reads:
Internal Server Error
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
Please contact the server administrator, firstname.lastname@example.org
and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.
More information about this error may be available in the server error log.
Apache/1.3.33 Server at www.wildefuneralhome.com
This is exceedingly disturbing because just a day or so ago i was making a few changes; HOWEVER, everything was working fine.
Even more interesting. The Internal Server Error only shows when trying to access certain pages.
If not logged in: if you go to the home page (www.wildefuneralhome.com
you can see the server error
but if you go to www.wildefuneralhome.com/user
you can see the site is working!
if i am logged in (via wildefuneralhome.com/user)
i can view the home page and successive pages such as http://www.wildefuneralhome.com/taxonomy/term/1
or even http://www.wildefuneralhome.com/tracker
also not, for example. That when i am logged in with the admin account i can view http://www.wildefuneralhome.com/tracker
just fine. However, when i'm not logged in, after viewing www.wildefuneralhome.com/user
, viewing http://www.wildefuneralhome.com/tracker
yeilds the 500 Internal Server error. What gives?
Most importantly, I CANNOT access http://www.wildefuneralhome.com/admin
and thus i am at a loss as to what to do.
I had not modified the base .htaccess file prior to this happening.
check it out for yourself. go to www.wildefuneralhome.com
then go to www.wildefuneralhome.com/user
The website is currently in maintenance mode; thus you should only be able to access basic pages unless you log in.
I have tried downloading a fresh install of drupal 6.4 and uploading & replacing the base files including the .htaccess file to the server. This yeilded NO CHANGE.
I also tried installing a backup of ALL the theme files and folders i have been modifying from weeks ago (thus these files were all from WEEKS before this problem started happening). This also yeilded NO CHANGE.
Thus i am led to believe it has to be someting with the server; however calling GoDaddy has only led to dead ends and them blaming scripting errors and advising i ask Drupal for help. But i don't recall doing anything to the code that would have caused this.
This is a very urgent problem. Any advice or help would be greatly greatly appreciated!!
feel free to ask me questions i'll do my best to be as thorough as possible,
Thanks in advance
