error 500's in plugins directory (2 posts)

    because i have a problem with a plugin that gives a 500 error page i did a little test

    i made a 'test.php' file with just the world 'hello' in it.

    i placed it in my root directory, that worked,
    /test.php 200
    /wp-content/test.php 200
    /wp-content/plugins/test.php 500

    can you guys think of any reason why the same file would give no problem in / and /wp-content/ but do give an error in /wp-content/plugins/ (and deeper directories)

    is there some kind of protection to make execution of deep scripts impossible ?

    thank in advance

    WordPress has no such protections, no. Your hosting site might have that sort of protection. No way for us to tell you. Ask your host.
