I'm getting the below error message when
I'm in the Site Wizard, then I go to the
Theme Wizard to change the theme color
and after STEP 3 into STEP 4 I land a
page with this message.


Error 500 - Internal server error

An internal server error has occured!
Please try again later.


What does this mean?:dry:

Thanks,

Hi,

If you go to your web hosting control panel and view your web server error logs, does anything show up that corresponds?

Sometimes Apache (the web server software) will throw out vague '500' error messages but put proper messages in the log.

It could be a few things.

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 ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • 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 ocPortal 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.

Chris,

I'll log into it and check it out
to see. So this message comes
from side of the pond? ;)


Thanks,
