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: www.intikhabesukhan.com
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:
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,
