Redmine/Internal Server Error

from HTYP, the free directory anyone can edit if they can prove to me that they're not a spambot

This error can happen in various different places for different reasons.

when attaching a file

If this error appears when you try to attach a file, it may be that the upload folders are owned by the wrong user (my theory is that this happens when Redmine is installed from a package and run as a virtual server -- the processes set up by the package assume it is running as the default Apache user, www-data, regardless of whether this is the case, and periodically "correct" ownership of those folders).

To fix: check ownership of the user data folders.

when loading a page

If you get this error instead of a web page, you'll need to check the server logs for a more specific message. It could be incompatible character encodings: UTF-8 and ASCII-8BIT, for example.
