I tried upgrading to Magento CE from and I got the following error:

Internal Server Error

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

Please contact the server administrator, and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request

When I checked my server log; I saw the following:

SoftException in Application.cpp:256File â€œ/home/valuebin/public_html/index.php” is writeable by group SoftException in Application.cpp:256File `“/home/valuebin/public_html/index.php” is writeable by group, referer:`

I’ve checked the public_html/index.php file in File Manager but I didn’t see any way to change “write” to read/write and perms is 0666. Where do I look and what do I change or fix to get my site back up without performing a fresh manual install? I need help.
