I moved a server from a 5.9 CentOS server to a newer 6.4. The 5.9 server has been compromised which is a first time in my experience. I am moving the websites because I don't know how to fix the server at this point. One site has been hacked twice in the last month but when moved I just get a stupid 500 error.
(The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.)
I have move sites a couple hundred times. Once in a blue moon this happens. Now I went from a working Joomla website to a broken website. Looking for suggestions on how to find out why it is not working.
I know this is a very big general question and I am sorry about that. The mySQL and files are all there and all looks good. The questions is if the server restore does a faithful job, what could be a reason for the failure to get a working website? Three different sets of backup files have been tried, all with the same results.
