    I'm not sure what I did to get a 500 error.

    I've been trying to get RSS to function on my site and
    may have done something to produce the error.

    If I need to check my CHMOD for permissions,
    what should they be set at for the main directory.

    :eek:

    I used to get this error, and it was because of my .htaccess file.

    Can you post your .htaccess file here? It might be causing the 500 error.

    sherryt,

    /home 0755
    user dirs 0711
    public_html 0750

    Your web documents should be 0644

    You can also do: tail /var/log/messages

    ....and look for clues/errors there. And as matty005 says, it may well be your .htaccess file. Depending on how you website is set up, you can change your .htaccess to this and see if the error goes away:
    Back up your current .htaccess first.

    There are several reasons could cause this error,
    first check the permission of the exec files like and theirs directories (should be 755) .
    then check the file .htaccess, you can remove it temporarily and see if the problem persists or not,

    and sometimes it is corrected by rebuilding the apache,
