Support » Plugin: Ajax Search Lite » Search 500 Error

  • I’m trying to put a search bar in the side area for my client (where it’s located now). I managed to get the search bar to the right size and everything, but when I try to search in it, I get taken to a “500” error. Is there any fix?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Hi,

    Sorry about the late response.

    I see you managed to fix the issue. Feel free to share the solution, I’m curious if this was a conflict or something else.

    Error ‘500’ means that there was a fatal error during the process. It is extremely hard to debug, as it does not yield any error messages most of the time. The usualy causes are plugin conflicts, syntax errors or unknown bugs.

    I didn’t find a solution. The ones I tried didn’t work. I’m wondering if it could be something in the theme causing a problem, since no search option/plugin works.

    Hi,

    Okay, I see it now. I don’t think this is a plugin related issue, because when I try to visit a random search url, like yoursite.com/?s=xy (try it in your browser), I still get the 500 error. However, in that case the plugin search is not triggered at all.
    You can confirm this, by de-activating the plugin, and trying to visit the search URL again. Let me know.

    Best regards,

    I tried it and you’re right. It triggers nothing and either throws up an error or takes me to a blank page.

    Check this post, maybe it helps.

    Hi there again! Any info on updating the plugin so it supports PHP 7.1 and superior?

    One last question, if i mark “Use custom ajax handler” as ON the explanation is “Usually it has great performance impact.” Does that mean that if turned ON will have better or worse performance?

    Thanks

    Hi Felipe,

    The demo is actually running on PHP 7.2, it is compatible with PHP 7.x as of now. It should be working on anything above PHP 5.2+, that is the lowest we tested on.

    Yes, the custom ajax handler might give you a better response time. It depends on the setup (number and quality of plugins, processes exeucuted during ajax etc..).

    Best regards,
    Ernest M.
