There can be a number of reasons for an Internal Server Error. Here are some thing you can do to solve it:
- The most likely issue is a corrupted
.htaccessfile. Log in to your site root using FTP and rename your
.htaccess_old. Try loading your site to see if this has solved your problem. If it works, make sure to visit Settings > Permalinks and reset your permalinks. This will generate a new
.htaccessfile for you.
- Try deactivating all of your Plugins to see if it is a Plugin issue. If you are unable to access your WordPress Administration Screens, deactivate your Plugins via FTP by following these instructions.
- Switch the Theme to the WordPress default Theme (e.g. Twenty Seventeen) to eliminate any Theme-related problems.
- Increase the PHP Memory limit
- Try re-uploading the
wp-includesfolders from a fresh install of WordPress.
