500 error by joomla

Postby Flashpowa » Tue Mar 27, 2012 3:01 pm

Hi Everyone!

I installed joomla on my own server and when I was trying to log in my administrator page I got Error 500, but only on Admin page, the frontend works perfectly. What the problem could be?

My requirements are pass:

mySQL 5.1 + php5 5.3.3 extension
Apache 2.2.15

i've had a similar problem, but i could actually sign into the back end.. but it would not let me download and install any components modules or plugins.. If you dont have any content on site or anything like that yet.. maybe try to delete the site and re install it again.. all else fails possible take a back up and upload it again see if there was a slight glitch in the installation..

If you are using SEF.. maybe use a ftp program like filezilla to see whether or not you have changed the htaccess.bak to just .htaccess

500 errors are always triggered by the server and rarely by the software (joomla). Your best bet would be to check the .htaccess file. If mod_rewrite isn't being used and you have rewrite rules in place you'll get the 500 errors.

Easiest way to check this is to rename the .htaccess to .htaccess.bak and try to access any file. If that works you need to check out the htaccess.

Thank You for your reply!

I had a Joomla internal error, not Apache2. The error 500 had been caused by folder permissions. The administrator/cache must be 777. I don't know why, it not the best from part of security, but works.
