    I have a site with WordPress installed in a /blog sub-directory. It was working just fine until I discovered that some time after the last update the only post viewable is the most recent one.

    I saw that Bulletproof Security plugin was implicated in one other similar problem, but deactivating my plugins and removing the .htaccess files didn’t fix it.

    Try checking your site’s error logs for a more specific error message. Your hosts should be able to help you in accessing your site’s error logs.



    code 500 is returned when server had internal error processing request, it can be a error inside php script or another problem.
    the best way is to look inside http server error.log
    you can ask your hosting provider support about details how to access error.log for your site



    This is the error message that we get:

    Request exceeded the limit of 10 internal redirects due to probable configuration error. Use ‘LimitInternalRecursion’ to increase the limit if necessary. Use ‘LogLevel debug’ to get a backtrace.,

    This occurs with all plugins disabled except Akismet. My helpful hosting company told me it wasn’t their problem and go hire a developer.
