My website shows "Internal Server Error"
There are many different possibilities. And in most cases it is due incorrect .htaccess file configuration.
Although this is generally caused by a problem within the script, many times it is caused by incorrect file permissions either on the script itself, or another file or directory used by the script. You should also verify the that the script paths are set correctly.
You should also verify that the scripts were uploaded in the correct mode (ASCII or Binary - check the readme for the scripts to see any special instructions. Normally it is ASCII). Another problem could be permissions of the file or directory. Your script permissions should be 755, or rwxr-xr-x.
