HTTP Error 500 in Extension -> Manage -> Database page

Post by admayura » Sat Aug 31, 2019 8:52 am


Having a problem with the Extension -> Manage -> Database page which the page doesn't load and gives "HTTP ERROR 500". Other extensions are working without any issue. All the folder permissions were set to writable. Three days back database extension worked well.

Seek your assistance on this.

You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.

Reason: Moved the topic from the forum Extensions for Joomla! 3.x to the forum Administration - Joomla! 3.x. Also, changed the subject to clarify where the error is.

Joomla 3.7.0 is very outdated (more than 2 years old) and there have been a lot of improvement and some security updates after it.

Your server's PHP 5.5 is End-Of-Life and they stopped with security updates 3 years ago...

I would
1. Backup your Joomla site (using Akeeba Backup)
2. Update all 3rd party extensions
3. Update Joomla
4. Ask the hosting provider to update the PHP version to 7.2 or higher
