Support » Fixing WordPress » 500 error after subdirectory migration

  • Hi All,

    I recently did my first migration from a temp server to the sites final home. Site URL points to server IP where wordpress files live. I was successful in importing database, uploading files, theme, etc. My issue is that I get a “500 – Internal server error” message when trying to access the sites URL (the one that points to the wordpress site).

    Files are stored at accessible at:
    http://www.sourcescientific.net/english/

    Domain that points to IP where error message occurs is:
    http://www.sourcescientific.com/english/

    I have:
    – set permalinks to default, and back to pretty again
    – uploaded a test index.html file in subdirectory and the server finds and loads that fine
    – added subdirectory code in .htaccess file
    – changed the theme to default twentyten
    – deactivated all plugins via dashboard and also hid folder via ftp
    – changed url and site location addresses in Settings/General

    .htaccess:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /english/
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule ./english/index.php [L]
    </IfModule>
    # END WordPress

    I will contact hosting company to see if they know anything but want to make sure my wordpress is in line at the same time so I can confirm with them.

    Thanks.

    – uploaded a test index.html file in subdirectory and the server finds and loads that fine

    Delete index.html file and see what happens.

    Thanks Krishna but I’ve tried deleting and re-naming the temp index file. No change….It’s in there for right now so client can access existing website while the migration is in process.
