ANSWER: There are 2 types of 500 errors: server based, or web page based. In 99% of cases, they are web page based with our customers. Our servers are extremely stable and almost never send out 500 (internal error) messages.
Therefore if you are seeing a 500 error and it doesn’t say (via Nginx server) then its from your WordPress site, 99% of the time cause by a theme or plugin. If you were recently updating or changing a theme or plugin, and suddenly saw the 500 error, so you know the cause was whichever theme/plugin you were dealing with.
To temporarily get your site back up you need to login via SFTP and rename the theme or plugin folder to something else. Then your site should come back up and you can login WP Admin also again.
To permanently fix the error you must determine which bit of code caused that to happen. If you are not a programmer, then you need to hire a developer to deal with this sort of code debugging as our team is not available to help with theme/plugin debugging issues.Last modified: 17 Sep, 2016
"After being hosted on GoDaddy for years, I didn't realize how negatively it was impacting my search traffic. Soon after moving to LittleBizzy, my homepage went from page 3 on Google to #1 world-wide for my target market, and I also reached the top 3 on Google Maps, with no additional SEO work."Juliette S.
"Before moving to LittleBizzy, whenever our news website was featured on the Drudge Report, it often slowed to a crawl or even froze up during big traffic spikes. Now, that never happens anymore, and we've been able to focus on publishing more articles instead of worrying about our web hosting."Steve G.
"The research by Amazon is definitely true, because our slow WooCommerce store was bleeding sales. After LittleBizzy stabilized our performance and moved us closer to our target customers, we saw a measurable improvement in shopping cart checkouts, esp. during holidays... much better!"Mohammed H.
