First Check apache error log for exact error message because 500 errors are usually due to invalid .htaccess entries. On cPanel servers apache logs are saved in /usr/local/apache/logs directory and on other servers (without control panel) apache logs are usually in /etc/httpd/logs directory.

Use tail command to view the last lines of apache error_log

tail -n 10 /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log

tail -n 10 /etc/httpd/logs/error_log

Error logs might shows the exact line in .htaccess that is causing the issue. If there is no enough information in the logs then you can comment lines in .htaccess file one by one and check the site. By doing this you can find the exact rule in .htaccess that is causing the issue.
