    Wordpress site has been running fine. All of a sudden it's coming up with internal server error.
    Cant access anything.

    Checked htaccess it looks fine - even deleting it makes no difference.

    Even tried deleting index.php and just uploading a blank php index file, still same error.

    I have about 5 more sites on same hosting, all wordpress, they are fine!

    Anyone come across anything like this?
    Any pointers?

    Have you updated to a new version of WP recently?

    Check your apache error log.

    There may be a problem with your mysql server, or you have permission issues.

    Sorted it - problem with host. Fantastic support though - contacted me and sorted it out so I didn't even need to open a ticket:)
