Error 500 after installing magento

Error 500 after installing magento

 I've installed Magento OpenSource/Commerce 2.2.3 with Sample Data on a GoDaddy VPS solution. Installatron continually failed at the DB creation phase, so I uploaded the zip to the public_html folder and manually unzipped it.  No errors in the extraction process.

Now I get a 500 internal server error, even when I attempt to manually go to the setup URL to complete the installation/setup wizard.

A check of my cPanel Errors file returns this error:

"[Mon Mar 26 17:37:47.953235 2018] [core:alert] [pid 27278] [client] /dir-snipped/public_html/.htaccess: Invalid command '<IfVersion', perhaps misspelled or defined by a module not included in the server configuration, referer:"  


The ", referer: http..." portion doesn't always show up in the error."  I'm just typing the domain, or www(dot)domain, or domain/setup in my attempt to invoke the setup wizard for Magento.

Of course I'll be appreciative of any assistance that can be offered. Thanks!
