Enabling Falcon Causes 500 Server Error
I’ve used WF for some time now, installing it when I moved servers a few times even.
Last night, I was getting high usage on one of my sites running on a VPS. I finally upped the RAM, and I left it in maintenance mode most of the night to wait out the unusual traffic (the .htaccess checks for a specific file, and if it exists, it will put up a static page saying the site is undergoing maintenance).
I’ve been looking at caching plugins today, and I realized WF has Falcon. To make a long story short, I turned it on, and I immediately was given a 500 server error. I mucked around with trying the admin page, the front page and the blog page (the front page is a specific WordPress page). I ended up copying over the .htaccess file I had backed up and then I could access the admin page to turn off caching.
I have no idea what to try. I would really like to give this a chance, even though I run a smaller site there seem to be a lot of bots and such that all want to hit the site at inconvenient times. 🙁
I am running with WP_CRON disabled and running through crontab instead.
I am running a child theme of Customizr, and the only change is a customized 404 page.
I have the following plugins:
401 for WordPress
Anti-Spam by CleanTalk
Basic User Avatars
Jetpack by WordPress.com
RDP Wiki-Press Embed
One thing that is very different and may or may not play a role is that there is a MediaWiki wiki in a subdirectory of the site.
