500 – Internal server error




    I’m a developer trying to implement bbPress on a clients website and I’m running into some issues.

    Firstly anything related to “Replies” is returning a 500 error. For example:
    – “/forums/users/admin/replies/”
    – “/wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=reply”
    – The recent replies widget.

    We’re running:
    – Windows Server
    – PHP 5.6.30
    – Memory Limit is set to 128M
    – PHP error log doesn’t report back any errors (???) related to this issue.

    I’ve tried:
    – Removed the replies widget, obviously.
    – Repair Forums
    – Refreshed Permalinks

    I know a few other people have had a similar 500 issue/s regarding replies, particularly the admin panel. Has anybody got a solution?

    Thank you in advance,

    The problem is most likely not specific to bbPress and is with your server settings or htacess. WordPress may not be able to generate or modify the .htaccess file for your website due to file permissions issues. It might help to delete the htaccess file, grant correct permissions and refresh permalinks which will generate a new htaccess file. Try to enable php error log in htaccess as well.

    # enable PHP error logging
    php_flag  log_errors on
    php_value error_log  /path/to/htdocs/PHP_errors.log

    Create a blank PHP_errors.log file in the directory specified in your .htaccess file and set its permissions to 777. Now refresh the page that’s giving the 500 error and check if that log file now contains an error(s).
