What can cause a 500 error all of the sudden?
« on: May 31, 2010, 10:51:45 am »
We've been using Feng for quite some time now at my workplace.

Today, out of the blue, the start page has stopped working. We get a blank page and with Firebug we determined that it is a 500 error.

What can be the probable cause of this?

The only thing we've done is change the password of the FTP user that we uploaded it with.

Pretty clueless with this one...

Hi Daiver,

Have you turned debug ON?
Please post relevant contents of cache/log.php

Yep, we found it. For some reason, permissions on the log file were wrong. I wonder how they got changed :S
