Occasionally we might come across 500 Internal Server Errors on our website. Are you getting the same error? If yes, let us find out how to fix this issue. Internal Server Error messages indicate a server-side error and there is something wrong with the server configuration. However, ensure that whether the problem still exists, by trying the following methods. Because this can be a temporary issue, may be due to browser cache or cookies.

  • Reload the web page. You can try:
    • Clicking the 'Reload this page' icon in the browser
    • Pressing F5 key on the keyboard
    • Enter the URL on the browser's address bar and load the page again.
  • Clear your browser's cache.
  • Delete your browser's cookies.
  • Restart your browser

There are lots of reasons behind a 500 Error. However the most common causes are:

  • Permissions Errors: An incorrect permission on one or more files or folders.
  • PHP Timeout Issues: If your script connects to external resources timeout.
  • A missing or erroneous .htaccess file

Here is the complete error message for reference:

How to fix 500 Internal Server Error on your site?
Let us find out the actual reason behind the internal server error in the server error log first. Follow the below steps:


  • Login to your cPanel account.
  • Click on the 'Error Log' icon under 'Logs' in the cPanel home page.
  • Go through the errors logged.

From the error messages, we can identify whether internal server error occurred due to an incorrect permission or a PHP Timeout or the 500 server error caused due to missing/erroneous .htaccess file.

Linux is the epitome of the FLOSS model. Technical Solution Linux installation Leave a reply Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * Dewey J. Corl (not verified) access_time 29 May 2020 - 15:38 Linux is not ready for the general public! (I am a Ubuntu user). For proof, 1. try to simply print labels on a Dymo label printer. It takes a LOT of work to get to the ease of label printing already available in Windows and Mac. 2. try syncing a modern Palm based PDA. Yes, jpilot and others will sync the main data, but pictures and midi files do not get transferred without a lot of extra setup. These are examples of applications that are not ready for the general public. Since an operating system only supports applications, Linux is not ready to be a common desktop for the general public. While we are waiting for the applications to catch up, keep up the good work!! Anoop John (not verified) access_time 29 May 2020 - 15:38 Dewey Yes you may be right. But these are not applications that a common man would use. A common man would use one of these applications - Internet browser, Chat Client, Email Client, Document Writer, Presentation Creator, Spreadsheet Editor, Movie Viewer, Music Player, CD/DVD Writer. Both examples you cited are more specific applications that only a small percentage of the whole population uses. It will take time before those hardware vendors identify the need from their perspective to address the Linux community.

I am getting immersed in the LINUX and seeing the versatility. To my surprise, I am able to read one of my old backup CD(wherein lot of my valuable file exist) done in DIRECT CD wizard (a custom cd writing software of Easy Cd creator in WIN98) which could not be read in XP. Installation of old version of easycd creator/direct cd program was not possible in XP. I thought that possible i lost all data. Very pleasant start! Srikanth N. S.

One of his grouses with windows was that after OS installation, everything else is to be installed separately which is a real headache. WHereas if u install Linux, everything is installed as a package and he is thrilled to bits! Let linux installation spread in Trivandrum and your service in this direction is highly appreciated. Kepp up the good work Regards. PDA Freak (not verified) access_time 29 May 2020 - 15:38 Is it possible to install linux on a packardbell notebook ?
