500 - Internal server error - Deluxe Windows Hosting



Everytime I try to install a Plugin or Theme in my wordpress site, I encounter this problem



500 - Internal server error. There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed."


My website is: 

I haven't installed any special plugins and theme is light, but it loads too slowly and also on internal pages give internal server error 500. 

I am looking for an efficient solution to this problem. Kindly recommend me if there is anything that can be done to avoid the issue or do I have to get a better hosting plan?

Hi @Faizan1, thanks for posting.

A 500 internal server error is a generic error message that generally means there was an issue with the scripting or programming of the site or file. I suggest that you try disabling any other plugins you might have on your WordPress site and try switching to a default theme to see if that alleviates the issue. Otherwise you can try enabling detailed error messages for more information on the error. See this article for info:

Hi @Faizan1,


Even though you may be starting with a light theme check your php setting and confirm that.   If you are at php 5.6, consider to going to at least 7.0 (its a one-way upgrade so make sure you're theme and plugins are up to date).


I consistently run into this error as a result of resource allocation problems.   What platform are you on?  Sometimes a simple update to an .ini file or wp-config.php.  Of course, this is not the only reason, but it is often my first step in troubleshooting a 500 error.


If you are on an older server, consider upgrading.  I use the Business Enterprise cPanel and it serves me quite well on a pretty decent e-commerce application.


Hope this helps,
