i got a real strange error. My Site runs fast like light, everything is nice. But since i update, my Website gets a 500 Error every time i change something. A new Blog Post, or a edit of an existing page. After restore my Sit now 3 times from a backup, i decide to ask if somebody got a simmiliar problem?
Thanks in advance &
mkultra Hi, what was your previously installed version and what is your current one?
mad Hello, iam on 1.6.12 at the moment, previously i don´t know, since my Backup is already on this version now. But it may was someting with a 1.5.xx, not shure.
mkultra Could you quickly rename the .htaccess file in the main installation directory and test if everything works then?
mad Strange. Main page loads, no other one do. -->Not Found
The requested URL was not found on this server.
mkultra After removing the .htaccess file you have to purge the cache directory or wait a bit.
Nop. I renamed the htaccess, but then i could not access the dashboard anymore. I tried to clean the cache folder via ftp, but no success.
Now, iam in the backend/dashboard, it says could not clean cache directory. the frontpage is not reachable...
mkultra Hi, sorry to see you have issues. You should be able to use the site without the .htaccess file. That file only takes care of pretty URLs. However an error 500 can also mean that there is an issue with the server configuration. Not being able to purge the cache is probably caused by the server not having the required permissions to do so. So there could be an issue with messed up permissions in general.
I don´t know. Since ever it runs like charm. Sudden death. I restored now again a backuped version, now it runs fine. I guess as i don´t change anything😉.
mkultra Glad to see it works now for you! 🙂
Update. I changed to the adam theme, put all variables into it. Now everything works well, like before. I guess my server error was caused due the update. May i pass to many updates, doing a jump from 1.5.xx to 1.6.xx. I will keep an eye on that😉 Thanks for your support anyway.
One Question: If i just want to change my menu font/style, what is the best way? A custom css in the header variable input or changing the adam.min.css?
Thanks in advance
mkultra Hi. Good to see it works for you now. The version jumps shouldn't be an issue here.
However, I think the easiest is to add custom CSS to the header variable or even link a custom CSS file in there. That way you can benefit from theme updates without breaking anything.
Thanks for your kind reply. As always😉
My coding skills are not good enough to make a theme, but iam okay in css.
Have a nice one!
