Need help editing .htaccess file

I made a huge mistake with my .htaccess file and now I can not even log into the dashboard. I need to get back to that file somehow to change the edits I made. My site is completely down and I get a server error. 


Internal Server Error

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

Please contact the server administrator and inform them of the time the error occurred, and the actions you performed just before this error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.


If I can get into that file and change it back to how it was I wouldn't have the error anymore. Please help! 


This is my site:

Helper VI

Hello @cltalbert


Your site works fine:

Your admin interface also works:


If you still can't log in to your WP dashboard, check to see your IP here, and then access your GoDaddy account, go to FileManager, find the .htaccess file, click on it and then click edit. Look inside the file to see if you can find your IP and delete that line.

After that, clear your browser cache and you should be able to access your site.


Good luck.
