    Did you check your server logs? Commented Apr 8, 2014 at 10:16

    Sorry but it's impossible to help you with this without more information. Please inspect your server logs (your hosting provider can tell you where these are if you're not sure) and update the question when you have specific error messages. 9 times out of 10 with these things the problem is with restrictions placed on the .htaccess file by the hosting provider. Quite often <IfModule> and others aren't supported, which Drupal's .htaccess uses.

Could be any number of things.

Check the server error log or stick:

ini_set('display_startup_errors', 1);
ini_set('display_errors', 1);

in your settings.php file (remove once in production environment) to force PHP to show errors.

  • I have put these code in setting.php and again uploaded, but still showing the same error
