Project Description

I have a website which I have moved away from my previous web hosting provider. I am moving the site to a new hosting provider with a FreeBSD (unix) server.

I have copied all the files and backed up the database from the old host. On the new server, I have deployed the MySQL database and copied all the files to the required directory. I have set up [url removed, login to view] to correctly to read the database. But, on the new server, I keep on getting a Error 500 - Internal Server Error. I have checked the .htaccess file and I cannot find any problems.

I need you to do two things -

a) Fix the problem with the current site - The problem is somewhere in .htaccess.

b) redeploy Joomla on a new database with the fresh installation. Then copy the template to the new installation. Thereafter, copy the content and plugins to the new installation.

I would prefer option A above. Access to the site, database and an FTP server will be available to you. You will not get SSH access to the server.

I need a provider who is highly experienced in Joomla, PHP and relevant installations. In your bid, please outline the experience you have had with Joomla and troubleshooting Joomla.

I need this bug fixed within the next 24 hours. The site has been down for way too long. Payment will be made as soon as the bug is repaired.
