    you need to contact your host, this isn't something that can be fixed using WordPress knowledge, it may need you to ask in a CPanel community – Tom J Nowell Apr 8 at 9:32
  • How are you wanting to access your WordPress site? From the document root, ie. example.com/ or the example.com/wp/ subdirectory? Either way, the "error" is most certainly with your .htaccess file(s) (and possibly the WP config). Certainly, the .htaccess file in the root that you've posted is "wrong". You need to also include the .htaccess file from the /wp subdirectory in your question. (Your webhost is unlikely to help you with this.) – MrWhite Apr 8 at 11:50
