error 500 (31 posts)

    Hi there,
    I have a problem: when I activate a certain number of plug-ins I am always getting this:

    "Error 500 - Internal server error

    An internal server error has occured!
    Please try again later."

    What can I do?
    Maybe there is a limit of allowed plug-ins that can installed?

    Kind regards,
    Dietmar

    I'm also getting that same 500 error. I was trying to increase my upload limit by adding a line .htaccess. If only I knew how to undo what I did...

    thanks,
    Col

    I had the same problem.

    In the /wp-admin/ directory, I added a notepad file titled "php.ini" with only the text "memory=20MB" (no quotes)

    This has something to do with host servers generally limiting the php access to 8MB, which is not enough when installing many plugins at once.

    Hope this fixes your problem!

    Brian

    P.S. I have an account with 1and1 just for your reference

    That solved my problem as well. My site is also hosted on 1 and 1. After going through dozens of posts on the topic, this one worked.

    Thank you very much!

    I too am on 1 and 1 (I even made the horrible mistake of calling their tech support... ugh), and making the change as Brian <THANKS BRIAN!!!!> indicated DID help me to install one more plugin... but the next one, BAM, same error. Trying memory=30MB, or even 128, didn't help either.

    Assuming that this is an issue with memory allocation to php on the server, is there any way to reliably increase the memory allocation so I can run an insane amount of plugins?

    Here's what presently WORKS (but I wanted a few more, like GD-Star Rating, Subscribe2, WP-Polls... you know, irrelevant but fun things):

    Add to Any: Share/Save/Bookmark Button .9.8.7
    Akismet 2.2.3
    All in One SEO Pack 1.4.6.16
    Alternate Recent Posts Widget 0.2
    Anarchy Media Player 2.5
    Collapsing Archives 1.0.3
    Contact Form 7 1.9.1
    DandyID Services 1.1.3
    Google XML Sitemaps 3.1.2
    IntenseDebate 2.0.18
    Plugin Output Cache 4.0.8
    Quotes Collection 1.2.3
    Random Image Widget 1.5
    Scissors 0.95
    SEO Friendly Images 2.3.1
    Simple:Press Forum 4.0
    TinyMCE Advanced 3.2
    WordPress.com Stats 1.3.5
    WP-Print 2.40
    WP Auto Tagger 1.3.2
    WP Super Cache 0.8.7

    Any suggestions?
    Should I call 1 and 1 back and complain?

    UPDATE:
    If Brian's solution doesn't work, you can edit or create an .htaccess file to make your php files run with php5, since Apache by default may be running an earlier version of php.

    Just put the following in the file on its own line:
    AddType x-mapp-php5 .php

    The .htaccess file can be in the root directory of your blog or website, and is just a text file.

    Hope this helps - it worked for me and others for this problem.

    Thanks Brian!!!

    My problem was not uploading plug-ins. I only use two or three. I think I just made the page too long. After implementing your suggestion, the page came up with no problems.

    WP 2.7 - Can View a Specific Page, but Can not Edit - Displays "Error 500"

    My hosting company is also 1and1. I called 1and1, they are not willing to support me.

    I am using WP 2.7 and am unable to edit a specific page in a category.

    I and all visitors can view the page, but when I try to edit that specific page, I get this error message:

    "Error 500 - Internal server error".

    I have not changed anything recently nor added any plugin. The last time I accessed that page was just 3 days ago, with out a problem.

    The "pages" link in WP has about 7 categories, but the issue is with ONLY 1 page. The rest 6 have no issues, I can view and edit them all.

    I tried IE, FF, Chrome and Safari - all display same error page.

    I don't understand why this is happening as I have not had any issues so far.

    Please help as I desperately need to edit that problematic page.

    Thanks

    Brian, I'd like to start organizing a parade in your honor. Thanks for the easy solution.

    Okay, so add me to the list of those for whom none of the above solutions is working (no luck with either the memory=20MB trick or .htaccess).

    I can access the dashboard, and I can retrieve the actual rss feed (e.g., ?feed=rss2), but the index.php file returns the 500 Server Error.

    The only plugin I'm using is Akismet (which I tried de-activating just in case - doesn't fix anything). WP is version 2.7.1.

    The problem seemed to have started today, which doesn't really make any sense to me as I haven't made any changes in about 2 weeks.

    Another story here of the two fixes mentioned NOT working. This started about a week ago just as paulrichardcook says.

    Rebuilding has no effect.
