    Hi,

    Am haveing a problem with activating alot of the plugins. When I install my plugins by ftp client and then try to activate them it goes to a error 500 - Internatl server error. So i went to my server provider for help and they said that my wordpress was installed fine and that it could be a version issues, but i dont think so becase buddypress is updated. So what else could it be. I am also using default theme.

    Thanks

    There are many raisons to have error 500: I happened to have such an error due to bad transfert mode of my FTP client for mo files.
    Such files are to be transfered as binaries, my client was wrongly setup on ASCII tranfert instead of automatic.
    Re-transfering files in binary mode fixed the case.
    Hope this can help you...

    Hi,

    Srry that didnt work either. What FTP client do you use, i sue filezilla becase its free. I even get the error when i try and change the background for some images. Could it be soemthing else.

    Thanks
