How Do I Fix a 500 Internal Server Error on My WordPress Site?

  • Answered
Hi There, I'm currently unable to login to my InMotion hosted wordpress site, and the public side of site itself isn't available either. The 500 Internal Server Error screen comes up whenever I try to access it. I've read the common causes trouble-shooting page and checked the error logs in the cPanel and can't find any clues. Can you help me out? Thanks in advance!
500 Internal Server Errors are typically related to your .htaccess file but can sometimes be affected by other things. With your WordPress site, it looks like your site required PHP 5.3 in which you were running the service default of 5.4 instead. I have changed the PHP version on your account to PHP 5.3 and it has resolved the issue.
