Support » Fixing WordPress » migrated site, admin side gives 500 error

  • Resolved flymo42


    Hello All
    I have recently migrated my WP blog to a new server and I can access the front end & login, but when I try to access the admin side I get a 500 error. The site tells me admin is logged in but I cannot load the backend.

    I am looking for potential gotchas that may indicate where the problem is coming from.

    I have an .htaccess file in the admin side as follows

    # BEGIN WordPress
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    # END WordPress

    The problem occurs with or without the htaccess file.

    Any help world be appreciated.

    You may want to ask your host or server admin to look at the sites error logs and see what error is showing up.



    All came down to permissions after I uploaded to new server – file & folder restrictions were to strict…Now I can secure the blog properly.
