Internal server errors in WordPress are the worst. They provide no real information about the problem and are rarely actual server errors (ie: usually your server is working fine). In this article, I’ll try to make sense of this internal server error in WordPress and show you how to get rid of it: Turn on debugging Whenever WordPress throws you a white screen of death or a server error, I recommend turning your debugging on. While this may not fix the problem, it may give you more insight into what’s going on. You can turn debugging on by editing your site’s wp-config.php file. Once you’ve accessed this file, search for WP_DEBUG within. If you find it, you should be able to set it to “true”. If you don’t see it in there, you’ll need to create it yourself. Either way, at the end of the day, you should have a line that looks like this: define( "WP_DEBUG", true ); Once saved, reload your site to see if anything has changed. If you’re lucky, the server error may disappear and might be replaced with a different error, one that actually tells you where the issue is. If this is the case, take a look at where the error is located.
