I've got a 500 Internal Server Error on my website and can't access wp-admin anymore
I've seen on Google that the way to fix that is to access to my htacces file, but when I try to connect to my sftp with Filezilla it's not working ...
I am using the username and password given on Godaddy so I don't understand why it's happening and how to solve that
Thanks for your help !
Have a lovely day
Solved! Go to Solution.
Your ftp info may be different than your GoDaddy login... Just create a new one using your cPanel
I went into my domain settings and I've got a special username and password for my sftp, that's the one I used
For the host, it is just my domain name, is that correct ?
Maybe I need to activate something ?
I am not used at all to all this (I usually use wordpress in a very basic way) so I am completely lost ...
Oh yeah, activate ssh. Also, GoDaddy might have blacklisted your IP for too many failed attempt... Call them to double check
For host, use your server IP. By the way, sFTP is port 22 and FTP is port 21
Also, editing htacces file for WP is kind of a drastic move... make sure you back it up first. What did you do before getting this error anyway?
I am having the exact same issue. Use to be able to access my Wordpress site via SFTP and now it keeps timing out. Go Daddy was trying to say it was my ISP, but I can SFTP into another Go Daddy account that is not managed via word press just fine. I think Go Daddy has done something on their end. Did you ever get a resolution to this issue? I'm still having the problem.
i too went through same issue but i tried replacing domain name with IP ADDRESS and problem solved !!!
so, instead of using domain name as host name, use your IP address !!
