Changes on Site Options Page Creates 500 Internal

I made a few changes on the Site Options page, hit save button and now get the 500 Internal Server Error. How do I fix this and reverse whatever option changes are causing this problem?

Thanks for your help in advance!

This is likely a problem with the Apache mod_security extension incorrectly blocking things. Please try renaming the supplied recommended.htaccess file to .htaccess, and if that doesn't work plain.htaccess to .htaccess, and if it still does not work contact your web host.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
