500 Internal Server Error

i have no idea what im doing so sorry if im such a newb.

i have a wordpress based site and it was working great until I changed a setting that causes a 500 Internal Server Error.

so my website is www.d-3-lab.com

and i was trying to make it so the webpage opened to www.d-3-lab.com/about

after i clicked update the site started having this 500 Internal Server Error.

so i thought i could just go back and simply change it back, but when i tried to go to sign in to make the change at http://www.d-3-lab.com/wp-login.php it just gives me the same error.

please help!



It looks like a problem in your .htaccess file.

Use an FTP program, or the WebFTP link in the DreamHost panel (Manage Domains) and delete your .htaccess file

I deleted the file but still having issues, not instead of the 500 Internal Server Error is says

“RewriteEngine On RewriteBase /about/ RewriteRule ^index.php$ - [L] RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d RewriteRule . /about/index.php [L] # END WordPress ����7���Ã�����”

would the best thing be to re-do the connection to wordpress?
