Support » Fixing WordPress » many errors, I think it is on my wp-config.php

  • Hello,

    I just installed wp in a new instalation and I have errors in wherever I decide to do. It says “Error 500: Script Execution Failure”.
    I think this is some to do with the wp-config.php file in the field ABSPATH, I’m not sure because my old instalation did not change anything on the field.

    My try is on

  • Carlos I can see a wordpress blog, it just doesn’t have any posts in it.

    Thanks for check it out. The error is weard, occurs in diferent places, sometimes I can’t even see the blog. This morning I could login and the error accurred when I tried to change my password. In many option I have this error:
    Error 500: Script Execution Failure
    Description: The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

    Most common reasons for returning this error message are:

    • File Upload Mode
    When you upload Perl, CGI scripts via FTP you should use always ASCII mode. If you get “Error 500: Script Execution Failure” you should check whether your FTP client uses ASCII mode when uploading your scripts, because if it uses BINARY mode to upload your scripts they won’t work on the server. The problem caused by wrong upload mode is associated with the way different operating systems handle the “end of line” character. Unix system uses a “line-feed” (LF), Windows uses a “carriage-return” (CR) and “line-feed” (LF) pair. That’s why it is very important that you set the uploading mode to ASCII.

    • File Permissions
    When you upload scripts via FTP the file permissions are set by default to 755. If you get “Error 500: Script Execution Failure” you should check whether your scripts have 755 permissions. Otherwise your scripts have lower level of permissions and does not support execution upon request. The octal representation of the 755 permission is equal to the following textual format: -rwxr-xr-x
    Most FTP clients support the CHMOD command which is used for setting file permissions. In case you have set improper permissions to your scripts, use your FTP client and set “Read, Write, Execute” permissions for the owner, “Read, Execute” permissions for the group and everyone else.

    • Script Errors
    This is the third well known reason for getting “Error 500: Script Execution Failure” upon execution of your scripts. Check your scripts for any obvious syntax or programming errors to make sure your code is not broken.

    Remember: When you get a “Error 500: Script Execution Failure”, you should always check for any file uploading problems (ASCII/BINARY) and the executable permission settings. Once those are checked and verified, it looks like there is a syntax error or some other problem in the script.

    Please take a look at this error:

    Usually the 500 error will drop the reason why into your server’s error logs. Please check there.
