Hello Administration and Mods here :).

I was uploading wordpress plugins through wordpress.

After uploading and While activating W3 total Cache plugin my site suddenly started showing 500 internal server error. It happened after I clicked on activation of W3 wordpress plugin.

I searched for the topics in File management and FTP section on the right side of open ticket system, Where there is a thread named :
"I get "Internal Server Error 500" on my website, how do I fix this?"

I could not figure out what the problem is after reading the thread, but followed what is written here in the below paragraph :-

In some cases there are so many lines in your .htaccess that it is difficult to inspect all of them to determine which one, if any, is causing the problem. An easy way to find out whether it is the .htaccess file that lies at the bottom of this problem is to simply disable the file by renaming it to a.htaccess, for example. This action is easily reversable.

I did this steps and named my .htacess file to a.htacess and my site is working now.

My question is :-

Should I continue using site with this settings a.htacess ? OR is there a issue with .htaccess ?
I am not able to fix the issue if that is so, Please help me :shock: .

Thanks and Regards,
Cantaxian.

Hello,

Please assure that you are using the default wordpress .htaccess file for your blog which is following one:

# BEGIN WordPress

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
</IfModule>

Then you should not face any problem to run your site using .htaccess file instead of your current a.htaccess.

If you have any other questions or problems, please let us know.

Hello Widwool :),

Should I replace the .htaccess with the one you supplied above ??

Here is What I see in my .htaccess file :-

# BEGIN W3TC Browser Cache BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4 gzip-only-text/html BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4\.0[678] no-gzip BrowserMatch \bMSIE !no-gzip !gzip-only-text/html BrowserMatch \bMSI[E] !no-gzip !gzip-only-text/html Header append Vary User-Agent env=!dont-vary AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/css application/x-javascript text/x-component text/html text/richtext image/svg+xml text/plain text/xsd text/xsl text/xml image/x-icon FileETag None Header set X-Powered-By "W3 Total Cache/0.9.2.4" FileETag None Header set X-Powered-By "W3 Total Cache/0.9.2.4" FileETag None Header set X-Powered-By "W3 Total Cache/0.9.2.4" # END W3TC Browser Cache

Should I replace this with the one you provided ?

Thanks and Regards,
cantaxian.

The .htaccess file is used for Permalinks in WordPress script and if you plan to use this feature of the script, you will need to replace the existing code in your .htaccess with the one that my colleague have provided for you. Otherwise you could just leave it renamed , so it could be disabled and the website will be properly operational
Here it is a detailed information on Permalinks:

Let us know, if we can assist you in a different matter.
