Creation of .htaccess file leads to a 500 Error
|Reported by:||hakre||Owned by:|
Turning on permalinks can render the whole blog into a 500 error situation under certain conditions.
The issue has been experienced with a WP 3.0.5 setup, other versions seem affected as well.
The creation of the .htaccess file does not reflect the systems umask setting which can result in creating a file that is not accessible by the server.
That triggers the 500 then.
Normally WP chmod's all files it creates. This is not done with the .htaccess file if it did not existed already.
