Apache Error 500 (Internal Server Error)

:?: When loading DokuWiki, I'm getting an Error 500 (Internal Server Error), what should I do?

:!: An internal server error occurs when some fatal error has happened that prevented the request to be fulfilled. This can have a myriad of causes and there is no one answer how to fix it.

Common Causes are:

  • bad .htaccess or webserver configuration
  • incompatible PHP version
  • missing PHP extensions
  • broken Plugin code
  • file permissions
  • SE Linux problems
  • etc.

The most important thing you have to do is to is find additional information on what exactly went wrong. The webserver will write additional information about the error to it's error log file. Please refer to Server/PHP Error Logs to learn how to locate the log file.
