Magento 500 internal server error

[Resolved]: Magento 500 internal server error
If you are getting “500 Internal Server Error” then the reason might be permissions issue or fatal error.

In Magento, you can check the errors occured in files:
var/log/system.log
var/log/exception.log

You can even allow the error to output to your browser by editing your Magento index.php with:
error_reporting(E_ALL | E_STRICT);
ini_set(‘display_errors’, 1);

Also, try this to solve the error:
– Check the owner of your magento project. It should be the server (www-data for apache)
chown -R www-data:www-data .

– Change the directory permissions to 755 and file permissions to 644 for your project
find . -type d -exec chmod 0755 {} \;
find . -type f -exec chmod 0644 {} \;
chmod 550 pear
chmod 550 mage
chmod 755 -R var

– Check after upgrade do you have your .htaccess file inside Magento root

  • Hey, I noticed your website information here is really helpful. I was wondering if we can talk, I’ve a tiny little issue which I’m unable to solve. it would be really great if you could look at this.
    main.CRITICAL: Warning: file_put_contents(pub/static/frontend/Sm/market/en_US/css/config_1.css): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/******/********l/vantamart.com/app/design/frontend/Sm/market/Magento_Theme/templates/html/complie_less.phtml on line 112
    I started getting this 500 internal error after importing theme data.
    added you on skype

    • Hi Shaheer, the error indicates that it could not find the file at that location. Can you make sure you actually have complie_less.phtml file present in app/design/frontend/Sm/market/Magento_Theme/templates/html/ folder and it’s file/folder permissions are correct? If it looks good make sure to check the error logs as well to see for any additional errors. Finally, ask the theme provider to resolve this as they are responsible to fix any errors in their theme.

      • Hi, compile_less.phtml is right there with permission 644 and there’s is no other error message in log file. Theme provider won’t help since theme support period has expired long ago.

        here is the code form line 112
        file_put_contents( “pub/static/frontend/Sm/market/en_US/css/config_”.$store_id.”.css”, $out );

        It would be great if you could help a little, thanks!

        • In the error the file name is complie_less.phtml while the file you checked is compile_less.phtml
          Looks like a typo issue somewhere?

  • yeah xD I made that typo mistake in comment above, its complie_less.phtml
    anyway, thank you for your help, I really appreciate it!
