Error 500 when accessing and navigating CMS


We have recently inherited a web site and now that the site is in place on our server we are unable to use the CMS.

When we navigate to '' we receive error 500.

Any insight you are able to provide will be appreciated.

Thank you!

relevant settings as they were inherited:

Config files:

$config['fuel_path'] = 'site-admin/'

$config['index_page'] = "";

    Unfortunately, I'd need a bit more information then that. I'd need to see the actual URL having issues, or access to the server. One thing to try may be changing the main RewriteRule in the .htaccess to:
    RewriteRule .* index.php/$0 [L]
