500 Internal Server Error when following link in email invite

Viewing 8 replies - 1 through 8 (of 8 total)
  • 500 – Internal server error is usually a configuration error on the server. Common causes are things in the .htaccess file, redirects, or file/folder permissions being incorrect on the server. You can usually get your hosting tech support to track it down and fix it for free.

    As noted above this is a IIS/Windows site not an apache site.
    I am the host and have full access to the server.

    Does the confirmation url look like this, http://Asblogsite.com/wp-login.php

    No. I’ve found the code that generates the link, it contains this code section it:
    While the $newuser_key variable does work (in that user B does get the access configured by user A) – user B also gets that internal server error.

    I also noticed in testing that the “key” code is not uniquely generated each time. If I add a user, delete the user then add them again they get the exact same link. I don’t if that’s an issue or not, I just expected to see a different key at the end of the url path.

    Anyway, here is a sample of what is sent on behalf of user A to user B for them to click:

    What is generating the invitation to join? WP sends a message like this

    Username: tester
    Password: 12345

    WordPress is generating the email using /wp-admin/user-new.php file. The specific code is located within the else statement of line 72 which concludes at line 84.
    Here is the specific code:

    Was this ever resolved? I’m experiencing the same problem.
