An internal server error is when your webserver is when an application on the server is having an issue and can't complete a process. You would need to contact your host after checking your error log.
[h=1]What causes 500 Internal Server Errors?[/h]Here are the three most common reasons:

  1. File permissons set incorrectly. Most commonly having a file as "world" writeable. This is a very common issue with PHP files. In general on our servers, PHP file permissions should not be higher than 775. Keep in mind too that the permissions of the parent folders/directories need to be set correctly too.
  2. Leaving file permissions set incorrectly after manual installation of content management systems, forums, blogs, etc.
  3. Coding errors in the .htaccess file.

The 500 Internal Server Error message might be seen in any number of ways because each website is allowed to customize the message.

How To Fix the 500 Internal Server Error -

Reload the web page. You can do that by clicking the refresh/reload button, pressing F5

The #1 thing to do when you see a 500 error is ask the host for the logs from the web server for the error message. This is the fastest way to confirm what the true error is. If you have access to the logs (VPS / Dedicated) you should check them before doing anything. It will save you time in the long run.

500 Internal Server Error

You are using Wordpress for Shared Hosting ? Mostly this error created that time when you are using WP & others CMS software in Shared Hosting. Shared Hosting is not supported EP & others CMS. It is Processor & RAM speed is sharable. I recommended choosing any 4gb RAM included VPS.

Do you have root access of the server ? and what control panel are you running to administrate this website ?

According to me, this error can come from whatever hosting or control panels for websites, normally I faced with this error when update wrong info in .htaccess file or misconfiguration my hosting server.

I would check server log error as @Nixtree suggested to find out what causes error on web hosting.

Please check the /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log and see what is the error that is coming when you are trying to visit the page. 500 error can be caused in number of ways and you can simply hear many possiblities which other members are telling but that will never fix the issue.

Please check the logs and come back with the error and we can defenitly try to help you fix that error.
