FIXED 500 Internal Server Error on WordPress

FIXED 500 Internal Server Error on WordPress https://youtu.be/OhWUvQU2diU Grab your free 17-Point WordPress Pre-Launch PDF Checklist: http://vid.io/xqRL The 500 internal server error is not a WordPress-specific error. It is a general server error that may be related to your server settings or your WordPress files. Use the information in this tutorial to troubleshoot the 500 internal server error you are receiving. Here are the things you'll need to troubleshoot. 1. Your htaccess file may be corrupted. Try renaming it and see if that fixes the 500 error. If it does then the problem is in the htaccess file. 2. You may have reached the memory limit on your hosting account. Try increasing the limit using one of the methods outlined in this tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmlGHje1V50 3. Try replacing the wp-admin and wp-include folders with fresh versions of those folders. This one is more complicated. Basically you'd backup those two folders in your hosting account and upload those two folders from a fresh version of WordPress downloaded from WordPress.org. Check Your Plugins The first 500 internal server error troubleshoot is by deactivating all of your plugins. To do this log into your site files using FTP or going through cPanel. If you go the cPanel route, click on File Manager in your cPanel. The find your website’s root folder. It is usually in the public_html folder. Then navigate to wp-content and locate the “plugins” folder. Next rename the Plugins folder to something different like “plugins-old”. This deactivates all the plugins on your site. If that fixes the problem, then you know the problem is with your plugins. Now that you know the problem is with your plugins you can go into the Wordpress back-end and activate each plugin individually to isolate the cause. You do this by activating one plugin, then reload your website. If you do not see the 500 Internal Server Error then it’s not that plugin. Then activate another plugin and do the same until one of them breaks your site. Once you know which plugin is causing the 500 Internal Server error, you can either delete that plugin, replace it, or contact the developer for more help. If deactivating the plugins didn’t fix the problem, keep on reading. Increase Your Memory Limit The next step in the troubleshooting process is to increase the memory limit on your website. Go cPanel and open the File Manager again. There may be a file in your website’s root called php.ini. If there is not just create a file with that name. Now, open the newly created file in the code editor and type memory=128MB in the file. This should increase your memory limit. Now refresh your website. If the error is gone, the cause was a memory problem on the server and you have identified the problem. You should now contact your host support to figure out what is draining your memory and remedy the problem with their help. Replace wp-admin and wp-include Files If increasing the memory limit did not clear up the error, then copy in a new “wp-admin” folder and “wp-includes” folder in your WordPress site. This can be done quite simply, but you want to follow the right process to protect yourself in case anything goes wrong. First, go to your root folder and compress each of the current “wp-admin” and “wp-includes” folders into a zip archive. Just in case something goes wrong you’ll have a backup of those files. Now go to wordpress.org and click on the “Download Wordpress” button. The downloaded zip file will contain the latest versions of “wp-admin” and “wp-includes”. Unzip that WordPress file. Find the “wp-admin” and “wp-includes” inside the WordPress folder on your harddrive. Highlight both of them and compress them. Upload them into the root folder of your website using cPanel or FTP. Now go ahead delete the uncompressed versions of these folders in your website root. Next, extract the compressed folders and now you have fresh copies of them on your website. Refresh your website to see if that fixes the problem. If it does fix the problem, you can safely delete the compressed backups.

Auburn Coach Wife Kristi Malzahn Agrees with Match & eHarmony: Men are Jerks
 
12:23
My advice is this: Settle! That's right. Don't worry about passion or intense connection. Don't nix a guy based on his annoying habit of yelling "Bravo!" in movie theaters. Overlook his halitosis or abysmal sense of aesthetics. Because if you want to have the infrastructure in place to have a family, settling is the way to go. Based on my observations, in fact, settling will probably make you happier in the long run, since many of those who marry with great expectations become more disillusioned with each passing year. (It's hard to maintain that level of zing when the conversation morphs into discussions about who's changing the diapers or balancing the checkbook.) Obviously, I wasn't always an advocate of settling. In fact, it took not settling to make me realize that settling is the better option, and even though settling is a rampant phenomenon, talking about it in a positive light makes people profoundly uncomfortable. Whenever I make the case for settling, people look at me with creased brows of disapproval or frowns of disappointment, the way a child might look at an older sibling who just informed her that Jerry's Kids aren't going to walk, even if you send them money. It's not only politically incorrect to get behind settling, it's downright un-American. Our culture tells us to keep our eyes on the prize (while our mothers, who know better, tell us not to be so picky), and the theme of holding out for true love (whatever that is—look at the divorce rate) permeates our collective mentality. Even situation comedies, starting in the 1970s with The Mary Tyler Moore Show and going all the way to Friends, feature endearing single women in the dating trenches, and there's supposed to be something romantic and even heroic about their search for true love. Of course, the crucial difference is that, whereas the earlier series begins after Mary has been jilted by her fiancé, the more modern-day Friends opens as Rachel Green leaves her nice-guy orthodontist fiancé at the altar simply because she isn't feeling it. But either way, in episode after episode, as both women continue to be unlucky in love, settling starts to look pretty darn appealing. Mary is supposed to be contentedly independent and fulfilled by her newsroom family, but in fact her life seems lonely. Are we to assume that at the end of the series, Mary, by then in her late 30s, found her soul mate after the lights in the newsroom went out and her work family was disbanded? If her experience was anything like mine or that of my single friends, it's unlikely. And while Rachel and her supposed soul mate, Ross, finally get together (for the umpteenth time) in the finale of Friends, do we feel confident that she'll be happier with Ross than she would have been had she settled down with Barry, the orthodontist, 10 years earlier? She and Ross have passion but have never had long-term stability, and the fireworks she experiences with him but not with Barry might actually turn out to be a liability, given how many times their relationship has already gone up in flames. It's equally questionable whether Sex and the City's Carrie Bradshaw, who cheated on her kindhearted and generous boyfriend, Aidan, only to end up with the more exciting but self-absorbed Mr. Big, will be better off in the framework of marriage and family. (Some time after the breakup, when Carrie ran into Aidan on the street, he was carrying his infant in a Baby Björn. Can anyone imagine Mr. Big walking around with a Björn?)
