How to fix an Error 500 after PHP conversion?

If the error 500 occurs, this error is displayed directly in the browser, but a completely white WordPress page is also possible. In both cases a login to the backend is no longer possible. If the error occurs shortly after a PHP change, the following solution can be helpful.

Solution: Mostly it is plugins that produce an error due to the PHP changeover, which goes beyond a simple error message and thus disturbs the entire system.

In the first step you should rename the folder /plugins/ to narrow down the error. To do this, access the server with an FTP program. If this is the reason, you should go through the plugins in order to localize the faulty plugin according to the exclusion criterion.

Just a Web-Developer

Creating a developer’s own website is always a big challenge. You want to integrate all the cool features and show all your skills. Therefore, it is rather called here to make cutbacks and to put the information in the foreground. I hope this is halfway successful here.
To add value, I’ve taken the „Helpful Code Snippets“ element form my old website and integrated a search function for them.

CMS Geek

CMS Geek was a website project that I started in 2018 and was supposed to introduce users to the functions of WordPress through explanatory videos. In addition to a blog that informed about the latest news about WordPress and Joomla, there were also helpful code solutions to common WordPress, html and CSS problems.

Due to the lack of time to produce more explainer videos, I discontinued this project in spring 2023. I have taken over the code snippets for Just-a-Web-Developer, updated them and will continue to expand them.
