500 server error. How can I fix this based on the error log?

My website is down. I ran the sudo tail /var/log/apache2/error.log and received the following output:

curl: (3) <url> malformed
[fcgid:warn] [pid 2871] mod_fcgid: process 3552 graceful kill fail, sending curl: (3) <url> malformed

How can I fix the error?

  • What is the URL that is causing this 500 error and does it happen with certain protocols? For example, receiving the error only with https and not http?

    THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR HELP!

  • @tyagar - Is there something unusual in with how you defined your sms domain in apache? When I tried 'wget http://wisdomwealthadvisors.com' it works, but 'wget http://sms.wisdomwealthadvisors.com' returned ERROR 500.

  • I think I need to have permissions for .htaccess changed. How do I do this? I am trying to have a new script uploaded and I cannot edit the .htaccess
