Getting a 500 internal server error for wordpress?

Go To


I already tried doing the php.ini memory=20MB solution but it did not work. I uploaded it under the wp-admin/ folder.

I'm not really sure what else to try. Help?

Check your web server's error logs. It'll have to details about the 500 error. What you see in your browser is deliberately vague to prevent internal status/configuration data from leaking out - Marc B 2012-04-04 21:17

The memory bump doesn't go into an .htaccess file in wp-admin. It goes into the .htaccess in web root. Use FTP to find and delete the .htaccess file you put in wp-admin.

Then forget about .htaccess files and try adding the line below near the top of your wp-config.php file, a few lines after the opening <?php

define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '64M');

Renaming plugin directory temporary solved the problem for me
