Widget Configuration Issue – 500

  • Hello There,

    I have been playing around with WordPress, and i am having an issue with Widget configuration. I am currently using the standard theme, but whenever i try to click on widgets and try to edit one of them, i get 500 – Internal Server Error.

    I have PHP 5.3.0 VC9, with IIS 7. I have not seen this issue anywhere else yet. I have installed couple templates as well as plugins and i can update them without an issue. I have posted couple of pages and comments. I am not quite sure what other info i need to include, so please let me know if you need more info.

  • Hi,

    It seems that this error is due to the PHP Memory limit exceed. For that check php.ini file in the wwwroot/public_html folder of your site. Open php.ini file in text editor and change the values for memory_limit. By default it should see memory_limit = 8M. Try changing it to 12M. if it will not resolve the problem then try to increase it either 16M or 24M.

    Hi Shane G,

    Thank you for your quick response. The only php.ini i have is, the one under PHP folder with rest of the PHP files. And i have set the memory_limit to 128M previously. This is listed under Resource Limits.

    any other suggestions?
