After some searching I found that this is a common error with a few different solutions. In my case I logged into the server and looked at the apache error log. What I found was the error and also what I think was the cause.
Premature end of script headers: index.php
SoftException in Application.cpp:256: File “/home/somesite/public_html/index.php” is writeable by group
The error was actually helpful. After that I was able to do some more detailed searches to see that there was a permissions error.
I ended up having to change the permission of the index.php file
Here is a good site with some information regarding resetting permissions for http://www.magentocommerce.com/wiki/groups/227/resetting_file_permissions
After changing permissions the site just started working. I believe the issue was caused by the server site transfer.
