The 500 internal server error message is an error message you get when your ASP, or PHP code is messed up.


What’s the domain, and what page are you trying to go to?


Are you running your own DNS servers?


Not to be a smarta$$, but did you push the keyboard into the PS/2 port just to make sure there is a tigh fit?


Good Luck!

Good day all,


I just signed up.  I am new to the Apache world and need some serious help.  I have been searching my brains out and still can not seem to find the answer to my problem.  I am using Apache 1.3.26 on SuSE Linux. One of my websites received a 500 internal server error message.  I contacted someone and he suggested that I reboot the server.  I was told to enter the command shutdown now.  Having done that, now when I enter the information on the website, I receive a message stating “Cannot find server or DNS Error”.  I know that this may be a stupid question, but I do not know what to do.  I was basically told to figure it out for myself.  I am not sure if the system came back up properly or if shutting down and restarting was the right thing to do.  Now when I go back on the server, I can not enter anything.  It is like my keyboard is not being recognized. If anyone can assist me in any way, I would really appreciate it. I am still researching to see what I can find.  Thanking you in advance for your assistance in this matter. This is a copy of the message that was received after the server was restarted.
