I have a serious problem with my WordPress theme. When I try to log in from Firefox, I will be logged in successfully but after that I try to log in with chrome or IE then I get 500 Internal server error. What am i doing wrong?

I tried error reporting E_ALL, debug to true but no success.

    My guess is if you clear your cache in FF you'll see the 500 error there as well. One thing to try is to rename your active theme (via FTP) and see if when your site defaults to Twenty-Twelve if the problem is fixed. Other than that we would need more detailed information. When the error started happening (what changed?) and site details (and/or link)

  • I had just deactivated current theme and problem gone away. Need to check further in that theme only. Thanks for your help. :) Jun 26, 2013 at 13:07

Repeating what I said in the comments so this question can have an accepted answer.

It is very likely this is a theme problem. Disable your active theme. If you can't log in to the wp-admin portion of the site you will need to do this either via FTP or in the Database. Often times it is a theme or htaccess that causes this sorta issue.

  • Ok thanks friend for your kind help. Problem solve. :) Jun 27, 2013 at 3:45
