Support » Plugin: iThemes Security (formerly Better WP Security) » HTTP 500 errors upon activation

  • yeswap


    Tried this plugin on two different WordPress blogs. Immediately after activating all pages of the sites began returning error 500 on every request for ever page.

    I had backed up .htaccess and was able to recover one site by restoring .htaccess

    On the other, higher traffic, site restoring .htaccess didn’t fix the issue. There seemed to be some sort of race condition that spawned over 25 long running processes. I was able to recover by renaming index.php in the blog root and manually killing all the rouge processes.

    I had exactly the same problem, thanks for the partial solution!

    Doesn’t help with the actual problem, but hopefully it will allow me to uninstall the plugin :oP
