HI,
I have been reviewing all my server and in principle everything is correct or I can not find the fault. I have reviewed the forum and I have not found in principle solution to my failure.

My problem is a file of the contact form that is in the directory example.com/assets/contact.php

Every time I run the form from the web, I link to that contact.php but I get an error

"500 Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request .... "

I downloaded the apache log from the domain and it shows me this bug:
Code:
"

I tried to create new htaccess file in case it was the problem and that is not the problem

I have tried up to 777 permissions and there is no way to boot.

The web is created in html all under a template and in a normal web server it works and in my dedicated server it does not

Let's see if you can help me. Thank you

Hello @jamesdriank

You profile indicates you're a root administrator, because of this I assume you have root access to the server and can login via SSH. If so can, I'd advice you to find the corresponding error in the apache error log and let us know what is output:

Code:
/etc/apache2/logs/error_log
Hello, it does not let me access as root,

[[email protected] ~]# /etc/apache2/logs/error_log
-bash: /etc/apache2/logs/error_log: Permission denied

[[email protected] ~]# -bash: /etc/apache2/logs/error_log: Permission denied
-bash: -bash:: command not found


I have opened the file with the vi editor and it gives me that data:
