I got a headache because my WordPress website inaccessible. Discuss with so many forum without any results. The next day I check back to my htaccess file and I found that error is caused by blank enter space on the first line.
Oh man, I know the feeling. I've gotten CI/CD pipeline failures because of a (missing or extra) blank line at the end of a file, etc. It's a pain.
