New to hosting -500 Internal Error message

I am new to hosting. I have an active wp website hosted on cpanel There was an authenication issue and i need to login to wp to paste a live streaming code urgently. Hence,I'm migrating the contents of this wp website to hosted on godaddy, to create a seperate wp admin login and access the site content in the new domain name to paste my code. So, I have downloaded the full (Migrate worthy) version along with database from existing cpanel hosting and using FTP uploaded it to the root folder httpdocs/ as primary website in godaddy account. I imported the mysql database and changed necessary docs to new url Then i downloaded wp app and created an account . I copied my existing database into the newly created wp database. I don't know what else to do so I tried to access the new url. "500 Internal Error message showed up- The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request". please help me complete the hosting. Give me point wise intstructiuons. Urgent please.
