Wordpress HTTP Error 500 while installing

Wed Aug 15, 2018 11:42 pm


I am doing a server with a Rpi to install Wordpress.

When i'm starting to configure Wordpress, it asks me for db user/pass,etc to create automatically a config.php.

However, it says that Wordpress cannot create this file automatically, but I can do it manually, with the lines they give me.

When I create manually this wp-config.php, and I try to go on the installation, it appears an HTTP Error 500.

Could you help me to solve this? If you need more data, just ask me.

Thank you!

It’s possibly a security error with owner / group being set wrong on the Pi.

What web server are you using and in what directory does the website reside?
