I know this is an old topic, but I have a 500 Server Error and I can't see the solution here. Actually I think I know what's causing it, just don't know how to fix it.
PHP List. 2.10.14
PHP Version 5
Shared hosting (1and1)
Linyx hosting (not sure what distro/version)
I have successfully installed PHP list, no errors. I try to go into configure (page=configure) and make a change by clicking "edit" next to a setting. After I make a change and click "save changes" I get a 500 server error. The change is however made correctly because when I go back to "configure" I can see it has changed.
As I am just starting (and first PHP Lists install) I can image this will cause other problems later.
I think the problem is cause by the way I have to host it. I have shared hosting with a Joomla install in a folder. The folder is linked to a domain, so if you go to the domain you go inside the folder. This means, the only way to visit PHPlists is to put it in a folder within the folder which contains the Joomla install, so I can go to www.mydomain.com/list
to get to it.
Ok. but, the Joomla install has a .htaccess and I think that inherited settings from Joomla install are affecting it. I tried making the proposed changes to comment out magic quotes in .htaccess (it wasn't there anyway). If I put and empty .htaccess file in the root for phplists then I only get the server error and cant see any pages at all. I definately think it's in the .htaccess file but I have little knowledge of such things.
Gratefull for any help.
