500 error when viewing site, no 500 error when viewing admin pages

Reported by: pauljmartinez Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.0.1
Component: General Keywords: 500 error index 2.0.1 installation malformed header
Focuses: Cc:


Brand new install of 2.0.1, PHP Version 4.2.3, Apache/1.3.33 (Unix) mod_tsunami/3.0 FrontPage/, at Hostway (http://www.hostway.com).

All of my admin, configuration, dashboard, writing, and managing screens work fine. If I try to view the site I get a 500 error regardless of the selected permalink structure. Have tried deleting the .htaccess and resetting the permalink structure.

Most intersting issue seems to be that the 500 error only appears when actually viewing the site, no problems accessing the admin pages.

Have seen a little talk that it may be due to the code writing a bad header that the server does not like. "HTTP/1.1 200 ok"

I added a post to the support forum to see if I can get some more information. http://wordpress.org/support/topic/62057

I just got this too and it tunned out that WordPress 2.1-alpha2 creates a bad .htaccess file atm when there is not an extra line break at the end. It just attaches itself to the last char on the current line which causes 500 server error.

Closing bug as invalid.

It has not been updated with additional information in many months, particularly in light of chradil@… identifying what may have been the origin of the problem.
