I am receiving Internal Server Error 500 after I uploaded my site files

If your FTP client uploads the files with permissions higher than 755 you will receive Internal Server Error 500. We do not allow higher than 755 permissions due to the fact that our Apache web server runs the PHP interpreter as a CGI in SuExec mode and such permissions are considered a security risk.

More information on how to change file/folder permissions can be found in our cPanel tutorial.
