Sir please make sure your files / folders have the owner and group set to the Webuzo Username and not root.

Look for .htaccess files in your root web directory (/var/www for apache), and in any folder you're trying to access.
Since .htaccess files are hidden (aka dot files), you'll need to use the command "ls -a" to see it.

Alternatively, you could just try opening the file with a text editor "nano .htaccess" from the www directory.

If you find any of these files, rename them to temporarily disable them
"mv .htaccess .htaccess.old" and see if the 500 Error stops.

If this works, there's a problem in that file which Apache doesn't like. Try re-writing any settings into a new .htaccess file.
