Installation problems (General (english))

When installing Spider-trap, I had these problems:

1. The .htaccess file:

When this line is in the file, I get a 500 Internal Server Error always, can't load the main page at all--
RewriteRule ^[^?]*/.[^.] /spider-trap/forbid.php

Removing the line allows the page to load.

2. Trying it out by going to the forbid.php file, all functions then work. But if I close the browser and then try to load the main page, I get a page that says

You don't have permission to access / on this server.

Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

If I go directly to http://mysite.com/spider-trap/forbid.php, then that page does open ok, so the .htaccess file in the spider-trap folder is ok.

My main .htaccess file says

ErrorDocument 401 /errors/401error.php
ErrorDocument 403 spider-trap/forbid.php
ErrorDocument 404 /errors/404error.php
DirectoryIndex index.html index.php index.shtml

Spider-trap puts these lines in:

Order Deny,Allow
Deny from nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn

(I did change the name "spider-trap" in setup to another name as instructed.)

The Internal Server Error can be caused caused by something wrong with a .htaccess file, but I don't see where. Could it be cured by the rewrite rule mentioned in #1 above, but that rule has a syntax error? Right now, if someone whose IP address had been used by a spammer and got trapped tries to access the site, all he would get is that 500 error.

Can you help? I'd appreciate it.
