[resolved] Internal Error 500 (11 posts)

    Perhaps I am doing something wrong but for some reason I cannot get the install.php page to run for me. I have followed every guide on here but nothing works I get the same error.

    Once I extract WordPress into a subdirectory on my server (www.myserver.com/blog/) I then goto http://www.myserver.com/blog/wp-admin/insall.php at which point it just comes back with:

    500 - Internal server error.
    There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed.

    I have carried out everything I can think of and even used old WP releases to no avail. What am I doing wrong? The above message suggest that there is something wrong with the php page. I have checked with my hosting provider and they support WP with no issues and even have a guide to install it which I also followed and got the same message.

    This is hard to guess... Maybe posting some steps that you did when you installed WP might shed some light. Any link to your domain please?

  3. Internal server errors are sometimes described in more detail in the server error log. If you have access to your server error log, generate the error again, note the date and time, and immediately check your server error log for anything useful.

    I have got exactly the same problem.

    Did you (or anyone else) find a solution yet??

  5. Did you check your server error log?

    I've asked my hostingparty to enable my error log.

    This is what it's saying:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_CONSTANT_ENCAPSED_STRING in /home/vhosting/k/vhost0035571/domains/sponsor-platform.nl/htdocs/www/wordpress/wp-config.php on line 46

    Anyone know what's wrong and how I can fix it?

    I found it :D

    The problem was in the four security keys. I changed them and now it is working :D

    Hi I keep getting the message "500 - Internal server error.
    There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed." Every time I try to update anything on my site. I just recently posted a new blog post and when I tried to insert a pic... I got the same message. I don't know what to do Someone please help.

  9. Internal server errors (error 500) are often caused by plugin or theme function conflicts, so if you have access to your admin panel, try deactivating all plugins. If you don't have access to your admin panel, try manually resetting your plugins. If that resolves the issue, reactivate each one individually until you find the cause.

    If that does not resolve the issue, try switching to the Default theme (WordPress 1.5 - 2.9.2) or the Twenty Ten theme (WordPress 3.0 and higher) to rule-out a theme-specific issue. If you don't have access to your admin panel, access your server via FTP or SFTP, navigate to /wp-content/themes/ and rename the directory of your currently active theme. This will force the Default theme (WordPress 1.5 - 2.9.2) or the Twenty Ten theme (WordPress 3.0 and higher) to activate and hopefully rule-out a theme-specific issue.

    If that does not resolve the issue, it's possible that a .htaccess rule could be the source of the problem. To check for this, access your server via FTP or SFTP and rename the .htaccess file. If you can't find a .htaccess file, make sure that you have set your FTP or SFTP client to view invisible files.

    If you weren’t able to resolve the issue by either resetting your plugins and theme or renaming your .htaccess file, we may be able to help, but we'll need a more detailed error message. Internal server errors are usually described in more detail in the server error log. If you have access to your server error log, generate the error again, note the date and time, then immediately check your server error log for any errors that occurred during that time period. If you don’t have access to your server error log, ask your hosting provider to look for you.

    Hi

    I also have a error 500 on my website : http://www.e-motion-marketing.com.

    The funny thing is that it's only on the blog page, all other pages are fully functional.

    Would you pls give me a hand ?

    Thanks a lot

    Pierre

    Same here.
    Win2k8, php5.2.17, mysql5.5.8
    Extracted wp.zip file to domain.com/wp/
    Browse to http://www.doamin.com/wp/
    Instead of forwarding to install and db setup, I get the following:

    500 - Internal server error.
    There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed.

    I have a Win2k3 server w/ php5.2 and mysql4 that I do the exact same procedure and it works without problem.

    I've also exported some wp sites from the 2k3 server to 2k8 and they run just fine, even will allow me to auto-upgrade to 3.1 without any problems. It's just installing a fresh copy that errors out.
