I'm encountering an error that i can't figure out. I have some html files that I open perfectly withthe browser (falkon) on my pc. But, once i upload them to the website, they give me Internl Server Error. I have tried the following:

a- verify the link is correct b- open the file from the parent directory c- upload the file again with filezilla d- upload the file again with the website utility e- change the file name

note that some of the files from the same batch and from the same directory work fine and all the files work if I open them on the pc.

any suggestion?

  • .html files that cause a 500 series error would point to a misconfiguration of the server, I would think. It might be helpful to post screenshots of the files in the folder on the web server, and a screenshot of the browser with the URL plus the error message. – Maximillian Laumeister Oct 11 '18 at 19:44
  • what's puzzling is that in the same folder I have html files I've uploaded at the same time and the same way which work fine. – black-clover Oct 11 '18 at 20:23

    Check file permissions, too. And if you are able, check server logs to get the error details. – Maximillian Laumeister Oct 11 '18 at 20:36
  • An "internal server error" is very generic. That is your web server saying "something went wrong". To diagnose the problem we would need more information such as entries from the webservers error log which usually has more information about what the problem actually is. – Stephen Ostermiller Oct 11 '18 at 20:36
  • Ok, let me try to get the log, be patient, I'm a total beginner. – black-clover Oct 11 '18 at 20:38
