HTTP Error 500 (Internal Server Error) (5 posts)

    Hi all,

    I was just editing my theme's function.php file to enable post thumbnails when suddenly my site and dashboard became inaccessible. I am getting the following message:

    Server error
    The website encountered an error while retrieving http://www.mytraguspiercing.com/wp-admin/theme-editor.php. It may be down for maintenance or configured incorrectly.
    Here are some suggestions:
    Reload this web page later.
    HTTP Error 500 (Internal Server Error): An unexpected condition was encountered while the server was attempting to fulfil the request.

    Does anyone have any idea what went wrong? Was it my fault? Or do I just have to wait for the server to fix itself?

    Thanks

  2. I would undo the changes you made to the functions.php and see if that is the cause. Error in that file do cause major issues.

    I removed the changes I had made through ftp and that fixed the problem.

    Thank you Christine!

    Please post your own topic. Your problem - despite any similarity in symptoms - is likely to be completely different.
