We’ve helped hundreds of people resolve the internal server error on their site and will sho you how in this video.

There are a few possible causes and we will go over each but if none of our recommendations are successful you would want to reach out to your hosting provider to see if the error is on the hosting’s end.

First the simplest method to try and resolve the issue would be to resave your permalinks. This will attempt to genreate a new htaccess file for your site to use that should resolve post pased 404s. Should that not work we will walk you through the manual method to remove the .htaccess.
