.htaccess causes 500 internal error


I just created a new file .htaccess and ftp to my web site. Now my web site has 500 Internal error. I guess I overwrote .htaccess file and the web site doesn’t work.
Should I just delete the .htaccess file?

any ideas what I should do now? Please help. Thanks!!


Deleting the .htaccess file might work, and it might not. Understand that you’re dealing with a very touchy part of the web server – and your application may or may not require certain entries in the .htaccess to work properly.

See http://httpd.apache.org/docs/1.3/ for more information.
