Did you follow a specific article to set up your server?
You should check the error.log of your webserver (which shoudl be under /var/log/apache2/). This happens e.g. if your .htaccess uses unknown/wrong/forbidden variables.

If the script you're testing is in PHP, try setting
at the beginning of your script (if it's really PHP) and reload the page. After that, check the php-error.log to see what's wrong.
