Googlebot cannot crawl my site

Hi guys

I've got a really odd problem. My site works fine, but I google and applications that try to access it like https://technicalseo.com/seo-tools/robots-txt/
Fail with 500 error message.

I have no idea how to debug / resolve this. I'm confident its not a perch issue, but desperate for a resolution, so any help would be appreciated.

My site URL www.glsescouts.org.uk

A 500 status response should correspond with an error message in your log file. Check for that.

Very odd ... when I click the link to your website above, I get an Internal Server Error 500 ... but when I right click, open in new tab ... I see your website. I think you have a server setting error or bug.

Route cause found in .htaccess - all sorted - thanks
