[resolved] 500 Error on Site #1, Site 2 & 3 work perfectly (10 posts)

    Hola.
    I have created a clone, named asa-template.thesenioragent.com and it works just fine.
    I cloned that, named seniorsrealestate.thesenioragent.com and it works fine.
    I installed 3WP Broadcast, and it is working fine - clones posts across the network.

    I went to one of my domain hosting companies and forwarded a domain (seniorsrealestate.ca) to seniorsrealestate.thesenioragent.com and now when I go to thesenioragent.com, I get a 500 Internal Server Error.

    The error logs in c-panel don't show any errors, and I am able to log into the dashboard of http://thesenioragent.com; I just cannot visit the site.

    Hmmm. That sounds like a puzzle! If you undo the forwarding does that fix it? Did anything else change? Are you using domain mapping? It doesn't sound like it's related to the Cloner, but is some kind of DNS issue or domain mapping issue.

    Can you provide any other details?

    After reading many of the posts here, I wonder if the similarity of domain name and sub-domain makes/made any difference. Also, when I first created the site seniorsrealestate.thesenioragent.com, I used capitalized words in the title, and title was very similar - contained the same words as the site address.

    The other thing I notice is now when I type thesenioragent.com into browser bar, the www. gets added - it didn't before. Also, if I remove the www. and add the login.php to it, I am able to log in. I cannot log in with the www. in place.

    Fascinating. I spent 9 hours looking for solutions, and finally found something that appears to work - sharing it here in case someone else has the problem and looks here. Answer was to set permalinks to default, as in this thread: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/500-internal-server-error-5

    Cannot understand why that would make any difference, but hoping it solved it - the site comes up now, and the template and site cloned off the template also come up. Now I'll try re-forwarding the domain to the cloned template and keep fingers crossed.

    Ugh! Sorry that took so long for what turned out to be such a simple solution. Thank you for posting what you found and hopefully it will help someone else!

    Hi, @adefirmant: The option that you're looking for will be at the top of the Dashboard > Settings > General and is called "Site Title"

    Otherwise, are you getting the 500 error during cloning? Or after the clone completes and on the new clone site?

    Does the cloning itself complete?

    Ok, is your root site very large? It sounds like the cloning operation is hitting a hosting limit and not able to complete which is leaving the site half-cloned.

    The most likely cause is either max_execution_time or memory_limit are too low. There are other potential issues that could cause this, but please try all these first:

    1. Make sure you can create a site normally with no issues through Sites > Add new Site (I'm assuming this works 100% fine).
    2. Increase PHP max_execution_time as high as you possibly can (like 600 which = 10 minutes)
    3. Increase PHP memory_limit to at least 256MB or 512MB
    4. Delete and purge all post revisions and auto saves - your DB might have many times the number of posts in actual size from the revisions.
    5. Delete and purge all transients
    6. Optimize the DB (There are several plugins that make that really simple)

    Give those things a try and if one of them does the trick, please provide the details here. Thanks!
