Error 500

Viewing 3 replies - 1 through 3 (of 3 total)
  • Hi.
    To rule out any bad WP installation errors, try to reupload a copy of WP downloaded from a reputable source. If you don’t want your content to be overwritten, simply don’t upload the wp-content folder.
    If that doesn’t solve it, the issue is very likely to be on your hosting service’s side, so I would try to contact them.
    Cheers!

    Every time I’ve had that error, stripping everything out of the .htaccess file except for the basic wordpress block “fixed” it. Obviously, there were other issues outside of the .htaccess, but editing it allowed the site to load.

    In that case, you could try removing lines progressively, to test which ones are generating the 500 errors.
    You could also try to contact your hosting provider, since the errors might be occurring because of server configurations that render certain modules or features unsupported.
