External Resource Timeout
Sometimes, the Web server may require responses from a remote server to process a client’s request. There may be situations in which these external resources may expire. This can be a php timeout. In this case, the web server will return an error of 500 internal server. We can correct this error by increasing the time-out values or by setting other appropriate time-out options so that the remote server does not return a time-out error, but is waiting for the processing time to complete. request.
Issues triggered by Wrong File and Directory Permissions
This is the cause of most internal server errors. If the permission of one or more additional files or directories needed to process the client request is incorrectly set, the server will not be able to access it, so the error will be returned. The bad permission of a php script is an example of this type problem. This problem can be resolved by resetting the appropriate permissions on the file or directory.
Misconfiguration in .htaccess file
Another common cause of 500 Internal Server Error is a bad configuration in the .htaccess file. URL rewrite errors can cause, but not often, an error of 500 internal server. Locating and fixing the wrong configuration in the .htaccess file can solve this problem.
