500 Internal Error

So I’ve just started using Local and managed to setup a site that I saved as blueprint fine. (Super useful feature!) I then created a fresh site from the saved blueprint and whenever I try to open it via ‘admin’ or ‘view site’ it just takes me to a page that says:

"Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator at webmaster@localhost to inform them of the time this error occurred, and the actions you performed just before this error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log."

Any help here would be much appreciated! Log attached below:

Hi Ben,

Chances are it’s an issue with the .htaccess file for the newly created site.

I’d try the following:

  1. Open the .htaccess file in the site’s app/public folder
  2. Remove all of its contents and save the file
  3. Go to the site’s WordPress Dashboard
  4. Go to Settings » Permalinks and re-save
