The WordPress 500 internal error is an application-side issue and mostly occurs on the server level. Mostly it is caused due to plugin/theme issues, corrupted .htaccess file, database, caching issues, hosting issues, or due to a PHP memory limit.
Your WordPress files could be corrupted by a hack, malware, or user error. To fix this issue, you have to download the correct WordPress files from wordpress.org and replace the existing ones with them. Alternatively, if you have a backup, restore it to a previously working version.
Lastly, talk to your hosting provider. Tell them exactly what error you are facing and ask if they can fix it on their end. Ask them to check there is an issue with your database server. This is especially common with shared hosting and is a problem that they can fix on their end.
Essentially the Error Establishing a Database Connection error is caused by WordPress being unable to access or connect to your database server. Some common reasons for this to occur are that your database credentials in your wp-config file are wrong, your database or WordPress files are corrupted, or your host is experiencing server issues. There are a bunch of ways to fix the issue.
Hi, thanks for this, have you experienced any issues with local and db migrate pro? I normally use mamp but used local for first time recently and got some ajax errors pushing the theme to a remote server (database was OK), of course these errors may not be down to local could be plugins etc but just wondered if you knew of anything that might be a problem such as the way local stores the sites in a app folder?
All the stuff you put into wordpress (posts, pages, attachments, custom posts) are stored in a line in the wp_posts database table. Every line in this table is identified by a unique ID, so when you type a random ID in the browser you could come across an attachment, a post, a page, whatever, or a 404 page
Since leopard comes with PHP and apache preinstalled I just wanted to install mysql instead of installing mamp, also because I can use the mac as a webserver If i chose and from what i understand this would be impossible to do with mamp, it can only be used for testing locally and could not be viewed by anyone else. I understand the security issues but I would like the ability to do so. My question is how can I install wordpress using the apache php and mysql installed on the computer and not through mamp?
Hi, just a simple questionIm new to wordpress and phpWhich version of local server should I use if the machine I work on locally is a widows pc whereas the server I will be using is with Linux.
