  • hi,

    I am running a blog “” on this host. I have about 3 old themes and have uploaded a couple of new themes yesterday. When i am trying to activate the new themes on wordpress, i am getting an error.

    Internal Server Error
    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
    Please contact the server administrator, and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

    More information about this error may be available in the server error log.


    Apache/1.3.33 (Debian GNU/Linux) Server at Port 80

    This error comes only while i try to activate the newly uploaded themes.

    Kindly help in fixing up this issue.

  • sounds more like a webserver problem than a WordPress problem.

    try contacting your web host about it.

    But the host ppl are telling that this is an issue with the wordpress..
    this is the reply i got from them

    “”””Thank you for contacting our Technical Support Department.

    I have investigated this problem for you and I ahev not faced any problem to change your current WordPress theme to default one via WordPress admin panel. In this situation I would advise to try to install other theme for your blog. If the problem still persist from your end, please contact WordPress moderators in their forum regarding this issue:

    Support Forums

    Because we do not offer third party software support.
    Moreover I can assure you that we do not have any server side problems for the present time which can be the reason for this issue.

    Please let us know if you have any further questions or problems.

    Best Regards,
    Max “”””

    Kindly help…
