I have no other plugins installed.
When I activate the Jetpack plugin (latest version), I immediately get the Internal Server Error message. The message persists throughout all of WP-Admin, and through all of my site’s pages except for the home page (probably caching).
Deleting the plugin folder (thus deactivating the plugin) resolves the issue immediately.
I have deleted and manually re-added the Jetpack plugin folder multiple times, trying a couple of different scenarios with the PHP alloc numbers. Nothing has worked so far. I’m currently set to 128M alloc, with a max of 256M.
This problem persists after a fresh manual install of WordPress. I’m using GoDaddy (Plesk) for hosting. Their error logs are way over my head, but if you’d like me to post today’s logs, I certainly can.
This problem has persisted over several versions of Jetpack. By the way, I cannot install Jetpack using the auto-install tool. When I click the blue “install” button at the bottom of the page (after entering my site’s URL) it queues up the plugin install. However, when it attempts to communicate with my WP site, it idles out into the same 500 Internal Server Error page. The plugin folder is created and populated successfully (I can see it through FTP) so I’m guessing it errors out when attempting to activate the plugin, just as it would manually.
I’ve been fighting this issue for nearly a year. SOS! Please send help!
