I got this error when trying to deploy my site on server:

Internal Server Error : The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, root@localhost and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

There might many reasons a few of which may be

  1. Inappropriate file permission- To apply right permission use

php bin/magento setup:upgrade

  1. There may be some errors which can be tracked if you enable error reporting by renaming local.xml.sample to local.xml inside pub/errors folder (obviously in developer mode)

  2. static contents not deployed. Use

php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy

  • but checked the permissions and upgrade and deploy static nothing special Dec 27, 2018 at 12:46
  • but where to find this local.xml.sample Dec 27, 2018 at 12:47
  • I already have mentioned it in my answer, its inside pub/errors folder. Thanks
