    Hello,

    I just moved a WordPress site from one directory to another. Everything was working fine until I tried uploading an a new image. The was a permissions error that popped up in the WordPress site. (htaccess error). I clicked on the .htaccess file in the root folder on the server (using FTP Dreamweaver) and set permissions to Read, Write, Execute for everybody (Owner, User/Group, and Everyone). After I did that - the site had an Internal Server Error.

    PHP itself seems to been disabled- an index.php containing "Hello World" also displays the Internal Server Error but a index.html - displays fine.

    The server is running CPanel.

    Any suggestions???

    Thanks

    Corrected issue:

    public_html folder was set to permissions writeable for everyone + group. Removed these two permissions (#755) and site back and running.

    If you run into these kind of issues again, just check the apache error logs at the following location for the exact reason.
