Updated my website theme and plugins and getting HTTP ERROR 500

Hi there,

I updated my website theme and plugins and now the following messages appears instead of my website www.slingingjokes.com.  This has been going on for about a week now. Each time I update my plugins I get this message after I get the under maintenance message. I am new to WordPress therefore i'm lost and confused. Please Help! Thanks in advance!IMG_0920.JPG

 

This is the message: 

This page isn’t working

slingingjokes.com is currently unable to handle this request.

Re: HTTP ERROR 500

Hey there,

 

This is a pretty easy fix. Most likely on of the plugins caused a fatal error which essentially breaks your site. You should be able to disable to plugins/themes through the database. You can also turn on debug to see which plugin/theme is causing the issue.

 

Here are some steps that should help:

 

Turn on WP debug: https://www.godaddy.com/help/enable-debug-errors-in-wordpress-24013

Disable plugins via DB: https://www.godaddy.com/help/disable-wordpress-plugins-in-the-database-26345

Troubleshoot themes: https://www.godaddy.com/help/troubleshoot-theme-errors-in-wordpress-26321

 

Once you determined the culprit, simply delete the plugin/theme, download a new copy, and try to upload it. If it still causes an error, you may want to do more research or hire a dev to help you out.

Hey there @crestme 

 

When I go to that site, it comes up for me with no issue. I'm not seeing a 500 error. Is it working for you now? It may have been an intermittent issue that's resolved.
