500 Internal Server Error on Magento Product Images – Godaddy hosting

I encountered this issue when I transferred magento files from dev environment to production site. The production environment is hosted on Godaddy. After trying couple of things like making the media folder to 0777 permission, clearing cache etc. I still got this annoying error.

I’ve been spending a couple of hours trying to solve the issue until I found out that the simple solution is to delete the .htaccess file under the media folder. Wt*.

if you are using a Linux server just do the following command

cd /media/
mv .htaccess .htaccess--

And if your using a FTP client, just go to your Magento directory. Go to media folder and delete the file.
