Internal server error when saving list settings

edited June 2022 in Troubleshooting

When I try to save list settings I get a 500 error.

I tried to add a mod_security thing to my root htaccess file but I'm not savvy enough to know if I'm doing it right. Can somebody help me figure this out please?


  • Hi,

    1. Try checking with your hosting provider to see if mod_security is enabled for your server, if so, try turning it off to see if it is the reason why you are getting a 500 error
    2. Try checking your server's error_log to see if there are any possible errors related to this.

    Best regards,

  • OK so I emailed my server, and they have fixed this - apparently they "noticed the internal firewall was blocking some of the
    site's requests which I am afraid was causing the 500 errors" - so that's sorted now! Yaay!
