What’s an “Internal Server Error” and how do I fix it?

An "Internal Server Error" is an error that's happened within the web server attempting to show you an HTML page. It's typically a server-side problem out of your control.

//
I’m trying to download software from a specific site. No matter what I try to download, I get this error message:

Internal Server Error
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request. Please contact the server administrator webmaster@******.com and inform them of the time the error occurred and anything you might have done that may have caused the error. More information about this error may be available in the server error log.
Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

How is this resolved?

I’m very familiar with this error. I see it all the time when setting up or making changes to websites.

The good news? It’s not your fault.

The bad news? There’s probably nothing that you can do.

It’s the server’s problem

An internal server error is an error on the web server that you’re trying to access. That server is misconfigured in some way that prevents it from responding properly to what you’re asking it to do.

Think of it like the web’s version of a blue screen. :-) Something went so wrong on the server that it couldn’t even tell you what the problem was.

Internal Server Error

Aside from informing the site owner (which may or may not be the webmaster email address that’s included in the error message), there’s probably nothing that you can do to resolve this problem. That’s because it’s not your problem. The person who is responsible for the website needs to fix it.

It’s still the server’s fault, but…

Now, there are scenarios where you might have caused this.

One issue might be if you saw a link in an email or webpage and rather than clicking on it, you copied and pasted the link in a web browser. If you accidentally didn’t select the entire link and left off a few important characters at the end, you might see this message.

Similarly, if you’re typing in a URL from a book or other place and don’t type it in exactly as it appears, you might see this message.

Errors in URLs can indeed cause errors.

To be clear, the server should be able to handle whatever you did cleanly and report any errors in some relatively useful way. If the server doesn’t and you get an Internal Server Error message, then that’s still the server’s fault.

There are some straws to grasp at

An internal server error happens when the server encounters a situation and it just doesn’t know how to handle it. An occasional source of these kinds of errors can be your browser. You can try these steps to see if they’ll help:

  • Clear the browser cache
  • Clear cookies
  • Refresh the page (F5)
  • Try a different browser

While it’s more than likely that these won’t work, there’s always a chance that they might. And they are simple and easy to try.

If you’re the webmaster…

So what if that’s you? What if you’re the webmaster?

Nine times out of 10, this error results from one of two very common errors:

  • An error in a CGI script that caused it to fail or output an error message before it started producing valid HTML. It happens to me all the time if I have a syntax error in one of my Perl CGI scripts.
  • A permissions issue attempting to access a CGI script. Depending on how your web server is configured, it’s not enough for the script to have “execute” permission; it must also be owned by the correct user and belong to the correct group. I can’t tell you what that should be because it varies widely from server to server (and even from site to site on the same server). My best recommendation is to look at the attributes of a script that’s working and copy that.

The format of the error described here is common for Apache web servers. That means that we can also look for common error logs. Once again, the location of these logs varies a great deal based on the specific web server configuration.

  • access_log is the log of successful accesses. On a shared or virtual hosting server, there may be many of these: one per website, often with site-specific names or in site-specific locations on the server.
  • error_log is the log of errors. On some hosts, there is an error log per site. On others, each site may have its own access_log, but there may only be a single error_log for the system.
  • suexec_log is the log that most people forget. It deals with the permissions used to execute CGI and other scripts. When a CGI fails to execute because its ownership is wrong, the generic internal server error shows in the error log, but a more specific error detailing the permissions involved appears in this log.

Additionally?

The message: “Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument…” indicates that there was a second configuration error on the server.

When the web server encounters an error of any sort, the page that it displays to report the error is actually just another .html file stored on the server. This error means that trying to display the error page for the first error (the internal server error) actually generated a second error (also an internal server error, in your case).

And at that point, the server just gave up.

    I’ve encountered a problem of Internal Server Error which doesn’t seem told on this page…

    I have a perl file which runs perfectly through my computer on the Unix server… but when I run it on a browser on my computer, it returns the 500 Internal Server Error…

    1) chmod 755 is set for all required files, other files are running on the browser no problem. Thus, there should be no misconfiguration problem.
    2) The perl file calls an ASP file from another server to generate some data for the perl file to create a text file on the Unix server.
    3) I don’t know why the 3 error logs mentioned above I found on the server, are all blank text files… probably the path to them are set wrongly.

    I’m thinking if it’s the “HTTP request->GET” problem which needed to be changed when running on browser rather than server?

  2. Roy Reply

    Here’s the file which has problem running on a browser.

    #!/usr/bin/perl -w

    use CGI::Carp qw( fatalsToBrowser );
    use warnings;
    use strict;
    use CGI qw(:standard);

    I have a desktop and a laptop. Only the desktop gives me this error and the laptop does not. I went through internet options and made sure all the options on the desktop were the same as laptop. I still cannot get all the links from the page to open up. As far as I know it only happens from links on this page after I put a symbol in get quotebox. I get this when I click on a link from left side margin listing.

    One question: I am useing mozilla firefox to view my yahoo email account and there’s been a new feature where you can “connect” to different people in your address list. But I chose to ignore that, so I clicked “inbox”. There’s a small light blue text box that says “loading…” below the tab (yahoo toolbar). I waited for many minutes and it seems that nothing is happening. If however, I decide to right click on “inbox” and choose to open in another tab, I would be able to go into that page, but the problem is that I can’t push send because I can’t “open” send in another tab. Who should I bring this issue to?

    Nonetheless, it is a server problem. Double check that you’re going to exactly the right address, and that you have javascript enabled. Sometimes poorly configured servers choke when things aren’t exactly as they expect.

    Hello

    to get the detailed error behind 500, no need to check the logs just do the following :

    1) go to an IE page –> tools> Internet Options> Advanced –> uncheck show friendly http error messages

    2) go to IIS, –> your site –> Features view –> ErrorPages –> select 500 error –> click Edit feature settings,

    then click detailed errors and click ok

    3) recycle the pool

    4) try to generate the error

    now you will have detailed error

  47. Geoff Stacey Reply

    Our website sometimes gets this error. I use a cgi script called Easy File Manager (EFM) to manage clients’ uploads and downloads. I asked the support at EFM and they said that if the script works once it should work all the time. This seems to make sense. What do you think?

    Things are never that simple. Smile Quite often scripts don’t handle unexpected error conditions for example – like say a problem in a parameter that’s passed to them – and this can result. Sometimes server problems (disk space, memory, who knows what) can also impact the script. So no, I’d never tell someone “if it worked once it should always work”. Life’s just not that easy.

    when i try to load the google homepage it comes up
    with 500 internal server error it loads every other page bar the google page how do i fix this please anyone

    as stated in the article and internal server error is not an error on your computer or something that you can control. It’s an error detected by handled improperly by the server that you’re connecting to, in this case Google. I’m not hopeful but you can try clearing your browser cache: http://ask-leo.com/whats_a_browser_cache_how_do_i_clear_it_and_why_would_i_want_to.html

    You left out one very simple, very common, very easy to fix reason, .htaccess changes can cause this, this also links back to give you the additional 500 error.
    So check your .htaccess file and see if its been changed, and that all new changes are spelled right. If there is doubt, simply undo the last change to the file and save see if that wont solve your problem. Cheers

    I am typing in my user name and password to a career website but i keep getting the error.

    The strange part is the website is accessible when browsing through the jobs offered but when i select a certain position and fill in my password details i get the error.

    I have managed to change my password by on typing the new one I get the same error, I am using a corporate shared wifi system,could this be the reason i can access the other company servers to make applications?

    worried.

    @Maurice
    I’m not sure what’s causing that problem, but if I understand correctly, you’re accessing a career website using your company’s network? If that’s the case, you should be more worried about your company finding out that you are accessing a career website. Everything you do on a company’s website can be viewed by them. It is not recommended to access career websites using your company’s computers or wif-fi access.
