Apache 500 errors not getting logged

Postby astekweb » 07. July 2016 02:45

I recently started getting 500 errors after installing a new plugin in a Wordpress installation. I thought that Apache would record more detailed info for 500 errors but nothing is going into the error_log file (or any of the other files in the "log" folder). There ARE error messages in there so I know that error logging is working in general - but nothing for 500 errors.

Can't figure it out. Thanks for any help.

Error 500 are application errors.
You need to look into your php_error_log
We don't provide any support via personal channels like PM, email, Skype, TeamViewer!

Not only. Also invalid configuration (especially in .htaccess) may cause Error 500 (internal server error). For example a not loaded module (mod_rewrite or so) and a corresponding Rewrite in .htaccess will cause Error 500. Also any typo may cause Error 500.

Thanks for the replies - all of the error reporting PHP, etc. is turned on but no errors are appearing in any log.

It definitely seems to have something to do with the Wordfence plugin.

I am currently doing this the old fashioned way and setting break points through the code trying to find where it's failing.
