Support » Plugin: Background Manager » [Plugin: Background Manager] admin page 500 error

  • Resolved wpte



    Ever since I updated to wp 3.4 I’ve been having 500 errors in the admin panel. The site just works fine, the admin panel doesnt.
    So I managed to fix it by removing some security plugins and now everything works fine again.

    Unfortunately when I reactivated this plugin, version 1.1.1 the admin panel instantly shows me a 500 error again.
    Since it’s shared hosting it’s hard to find out exactly what’s going on, but I hope you’d know a way of finding the exact cause of the problem.

    Generally the “500” errors are related to the web server itself, rather than PHP. This could be related to problems with a .htaccess file for instance (especially as you’ve indicated that removing some security plugins resolved the problem before).

    Background Manager uses .htaccess files as well, but only in its local store (wp-content/plugins/background-manager/store/). This file uses a very common command though, so it would be a bit strange if your host did not permit this. Nevertheless, one work-around would be to remove the wp-content/plugins/background-manager/store/ directory, then re-create it to be read-only (so nothing can be stored in it).

    Hi Myatu,

    I’m not sure… the security plugins still left the htaccess files, but even with the regular ones I get 500 errors.
    The security plugins did insert some counters into the admin panel, which is I think the main reason why it didn’t work.

    I don’t know, ever since I upgraded all sorts of things seem to be off from the admin panel. In the plugins section I can’t see the seperate activate, remove and other links for each pluing. Instead I have to tick them do things trough the bulk method…

    PHP can give a 500 error tho. If PHP doesn’t give a response for example a server might generate a 500 error.

    I’ve tried your trick, but it doesn’t seem to do anything better.
    I’ve this nasty feeling I might need to re-install this. 🙁
