  • Your hosting company is facing a server issue…, this can take a couple of minutes up to some hours/days, depending on your hosting provider. In case you are getting the 500 internal server whenever you try to visit a website, then you’ll have a internet connection problem.

    I would recommend you to contact the customer service of your host… the 500 internal server error can only be corrected by repairs/corrections on the web server software, not on the clients site!

    – switching to the Twenty Ten theme by renaming your current theme’s folder in wp-content/themes using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin.

    -re-uploading all files & folders – except the wp-content folder – from a fresh download of WordPress 3.0.

    I had an error like this and it was because the permissions on my files were screwy. Some were set to 777 and this caused the error. 755 solved it.
