Help with a critical error!


I was trying to install a meta tag into my website through a wordpress plugin called Robot meta and I did something really wrong, I now get an 500 Internal Server Error when I try to get to my website or even my wordpress admin site! I was trying to verify my site with google to use their webmaster tools.

I checked my Hosting site and in the error log I get:

[Sat Jan 08 12:06:57 2011] [alert] [client] /home/theflyer/public_html/.htaccess: /home/theflyer/public_html/.htaccess:1: <meta> was not closed.

Can someone please help me get my site back up, I am really bad at this part of the buisness. Thank you!

Hi theflyer,

The most common cause of a 500 server error is a broken .htaccess file. To resolve the issue, you have to delete the code that was probably added to the .htaccess file when you installed the plugin. I suggest that you contact your host for assistance in fixing your .htaccess file.
