Why do I get a 500 error message?

We use suphp on our servers and PHP scripts are executed with your username for extra security. All files must be chmod to 644 and directories to 711 or 755. No directories must be chmod to 777. If you have any directories chmod to 777 you will get a 500 error message. You should chmod them to 711 or 755 to resolve the problem. Another case where you would get a 500 error message is a wrong line in your .htaccess file. Check it for any php_value or php_flag directives and remove them. That will resolve the 500 error message you are getting.
