Support 500 error on one form only -- too many fields? (4 posts)

    I have a massive order form that has custom HTML before a number of fields to create a table format. There are 80 extra fields, 79 of which are used. You can see it here:


    I had no problem creating it but when I went back to update it after a while, I got a 500 Server Error when only trying to update that form. No other forms have this problem:

    500 Server Error

    A misconfiguration on the server caused a hiccup. Check the server logs, fix the problem, then try again.

    Is this a hardware or PHP version issue? I have Bluehost as my server and I've never had a problem with them before.

    Which browser are you using? A lot of times Chrome and another browser will give you a "500" error when it is actually a php error. You can check if it is a php error by finding your php error logs. I know by default Bluehost has theirs saved to error_log in the folder that created it.

    I tried it on Firefox and it gave me the same error. I found the error_log file and it was massive, but it turns out that a Google Weather plugin I had was giving it fits. That was the only PHP error, though. I've deactivated that but I'm still getting the 500 error.
