Currently I am using a QGIS server with a linux Centos system. I am attempting the create a WMS in QGIS and upload it to my website. I have followed the instructions in the "Quantium GIS User Guide: version 1.7.0 Wroclaw" . I am trying to call the newly created WMS in QGIS by "Add Layer(s) from a server" button. I am very certain I am entering the correct address but I always get this error below

Could not understand the response. The wms provider said:
Download of capabilities failed: Error downloading

Server replied Internal Server Error

Thank you for your time and consideration.
