"Internal Server Error" message / broken link

Post by georgeta » Tue Sep 09, 2014 3:36 pm

Build : Joomla! 2.5.6
"Internal Server Error" message when download link is clicked.

I am having trouble getting a download link to work on one of my pages. The link should lead to a pdf download but I keep getting the same error message (screenshot attached) which says "Internal Server Error". The link is in a module and I have tried changing the link document and location of the document and even duplicating the module but the same error message appears.

The link should have opened the selected document in a new window instead of an error message.

Please always upgrade to the latest Joomla version within the same series first before trying to solve errors with an older version. Possible bugs might have been solved in the meantime, and it's a waste of time trying to solve issues that are caused because of non-updated software...

Joomla < 2.5.14 has an security issue, so upgrade your website asap (make backup first!)
The latest version in the 2.5 series is Joomla 2.5.26http://www.joomla.org/download.html
