I am getting a 500 internal server error when I try to log into www.mysite.com/wp-admin/ and www.mysite.com/wp-login.php.

  • The actual site is up and running just fine so it cannot be a database error.
  • I have stripped the plugins from the site through FTP.
  • I have re-copied the .htaccess file and put in what WordPress recommended.
  • I even went in and define('RELOCATE',true) as WordPress suggested.

None of these worked. I am not sure what else it could be because the main site is working just not the admin side. Has anyone come across this issue? If so, how did you fix it?

    Have you enabled WP_DEBUG? Commented Mar 9, 2016 at 21:12
  • It says this: Notice: The called constructor method for WP_Widget is deprecated since version 4.3.0! Use __construct() instead. in /home/instant/public_html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 3624 Commented Mar 9, 2016 at 21:20
  • but it looks as if that line is just the error message Commented Mar 9, 2016 at 21:21
  • did you check the .htaccess in wp-admin folder. it could be corrupt. disable the plugins that has access to wp dashboard and admin area.

  • There is no .htaccess file in the wp-admin directory. Just the root directory. I have disabled all of the plugins and it still didn't work. Commented Mar 9, 2016 at 21:46

500 can be caused due to these ->

Corrupted WP core files Corrupted .htaccess files Problematic plugins PHP memory limit issues Problematic theme

As you already

  • I have re-copied the .htaccess file and put in what WordPress recommended.
  • I have stripped the plugins from the site through FTP.

I think Upload fresh copy of wp-admin and wp-includes to your WordPress site Can help.
