Firstly, I was using the hosts file to point the server/hosting ip to a domain.
I went into Files, and tried creating an Upload Directory. All I did was give it a name and 'Saved'. An error appeared stating I had to select something from the 'Adapter' field. I selected 'Local', clicked saved and instantly received the 500 Internal Server Error page. I cannot view any part of the frontend or EE backend.
'..a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.'
Trying to access any file with a php extension gives the error.
An error that appears in cPanel 'Errors': 'client denied by server configuration: /home/username/public_html/.user.ini'
Tried clearing .htaccess, no change. Am using EE 7.2.10
ANY HELP on how to get things back would be extremely appreciated!
