Throwing 500 Internal Server Problem, unable to configure on Hostgator server
I am new to Magento.
I am trying to install Magento on my Hostgator server but it throws an “500 Internal Server Error” I changed the chmod of Index.php and .htaccess as well, but nothing worked for me.
Can any one please help me to resolve this issues?
the 500 error is probably directly related to file/folder permissions. Checkout the E-Commerce Gorilla Upgrade Guide. Besides covering the upgrade it also address a number of errors you might encounter.
