As requested (https://wordpress.org/support/topic/sudden-problems/#post-13163664) starting a new thread for this issue:
My client alerted me to a Google search Console “coverage issue” related to a “server error (5xx). Here’s a screenshot to what I see: https://snipboard.io/whQekL.jpg
The URL itself is not tied to an existing page but should be redirecting to the new version of the URL.
What I discovered in looking into this again is that I had this sort of redirect setup:
This actually works. But, the error is happening on “/community/karsten-cove/” — with a trailing slash. So I added a second redirection rule:
This does not work. When I choose “Check Redirect” within WP for that rule, I get a 500 error. It says in the popup:
Expected: 301 to /community/albertville-karston-cove/
Agent: Not using Redirection
As mentioned in the previous thread, I had previously copied my site to staging, deactivated all plugins except Redirection, and switched theme to Twenty Twenty. Still seeing it, whether logged in or not.
I went back to the staging site and added the second redirect rule, with the ending-slash. But, now, both redirects are sending me to the home page?
Any help you can provide would be appreciated. Thank you!
