I have a 'feature' using webalizer with joomla that is weird. I am currently in the 24hour period waiting for stats to publish, but now any page other than the homepage gives error: "Internal Server Error

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

Please contact the server administrator, [no address given] 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.

Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request."

I am using Joomla 2.5.4 I have webalizer app hooked into URL domain.com/stats If I remove the /stats link the pages come back again!

any ideas

Adding multiple apps to a site causes the DocumentRoot for the site to change to a fake value like /home/username/webapps/_, and this breaks Joomla's rewrite rules, which causes the error you are seeing.

You can fix it by editing .htaccess in your Joomla app directory to add a RewriteBase directive, eg change this...

## Mod_rewrite in use.

RewriteEngine On

... to this ...

## Mod_rewrite in use.

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /

Hope that helps!
