Problem WordPress Server Error 500 Fixed


To fix the server error 500-

  1. Check for corrupt .htaccess file by logging to your site through ftp and then renaming your main.htaccess file to something else and then try loosing your site. This will solve the error.
  2. If first method didn’t solve the error then try increasing the php memory limit. To do that create a php.ini blank text file and then type memory=64MB in it. Save it and then upload it into your wp-admin folder

One of the above two methods will definitely solve the problem.

Problem WordPress Server Error 500 Fixed


In WordPress, the two most common causes of “500 Internal Server Error” are the “.htaccess” file and your server’s PHP memory limit. In WordPress, the problem with the “.htaccess” file is that when you install a plug-in or make changes to your site, this file can become corrupted.

If you point the problem was coming from this file, the easiest way to fix the “500 Internal Server Error” is to make a new “.htaccess” file. To create a new “.htaccess” file, open the Control Panel of your site and go to the root directory. Look for the “.htaccess” file then rename it to something like “.htaccess.bak” or something else.

Renaming the file will basically delete the “.htaccess” file of your site. After this, go to your WordPress admin area then go to “Settings” then select “Permalinks.” Scroll down to the bottom of the page then click “Save Changes.” Try visiting your site on your web browser then verify if the error is gone.
