Support » Plugin: Subscribe2 » subscribe2 error when publishing an article

  • Resolved JSHodge


    I get the following error when I enter a new post. Subscribe2 does not send out the email to the subscribers.

    The website encountered an error while retrieving It may be down for maintenance or configured incorrectly.
    Here are some suggestions:
    Reload this webpage later.
    HTTP Error 500 (Internal Server Error): An unexpected condition was encountered while the server was attempting to fulfill the request.

    I have deactivated all of my plugins and reloaded each plugin. I receive this error when subscribe2 has been activated.

  • @jshodge,

    That file you listed above ( is a core WordPress file. I can only think that the error on your server is maybe due to insufficient RAM or some other server side limitation on your hosting account. Please raise this with your hosting provider.


    Will it help if we used WordPress Mail Queue plugin that you have ?

    Is it compatible to WP 3.4.1?



    WordPress Mail Queue will only help if the mail failures are down to your site exceeding server side emailing limits over a set time frame. So, if your host allows you to send 100 emails per hours and you try sending 1000 if isn’t going to work. WordPress Mail Queue will help there, if you don’t know why it isn’t working spending money without checking things first probably isn’t wise.


    Thanks Matt, I had read the faq at and improved on 2 of the 3 areas.. now waiting for server/host to reply to my question on whether there has been a restriction limit, and check my server log for possible answers.

    Update you again.




    My host has said that they have limit, 500 emails per hour.

    But I have installed and monitored Email Log ( )

    And the email log shows that the WPmail has sent to all the subcribers…

    I tested blog post with image and url links in one, and another without image or url link. Both resulted the same, some subscriber received emails, most did not.

    Please help.

    So what seems to be the problem?

    Will buying the WP Mail Queue help solve it?




    You haven’t said how many subscribers you actually have on your blog. If it’s more than 500 then a mail queuing solution will almost certainly help.

    If you have less than 500 and your host are actually monitoring compliance with their limit on an hourly basis (so not checking for 50 emails every 6 minutes) then mail queuing isn’t going to help.




    I have 1200++

    so I guess ITs ideal to have the plugin then.. buying it now.
