Wordpress Error 500


#1

I updated wordpress to version 5.0.2 and now nothing is working and I can not access wordpress for that site at all.
(not even the admin area) I keep getting http error 500. I have since changed the htaccess filename (made no difference) changed the plugin file name to deactivate them all  (made no difference)  and tried reverting back to wordpress version 4.9.8  (made no difference). What else can I do? I did check that it’s not my theme but according to wordpress hestia is compatible with v5.

Thank you I now recieve this error:

require(/home/vol11_7/epizy.com/epiz_22618765/htdocs/wp-blog-header.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/vol11_7/epizy.com/epiz_22618765/htdocs/index.php on line 17
 
I changed

require('./wp-blog-header.php');

To this:

<span>require('wp-blog-header.php');</span>

<span>But still no luck and got even more errors.</span>

Why did you change this if error means that system can’t find index.php?

I have since changed it back. But do not know what to do now.

Generally, editing WordPress core files is a bad idea. Usually, these missing files errors are caused by a botched installation or upgrade.

A fairly easy way to fix this is to download a fresh copy of WordPress from https://wordpress.org, extract it on your computer, and use an FTP client to copy the clean WordPress files on top of your existing website, overwriting any files as you go.

That should ensure the WordPress core code is complete and correct, and WordPress should be able to fix itself after that.

I enabled the error via php and got this result:

require(/home/vol11_7/epizy.com/epiz_22618765/htdocs/wp-blog-header.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/vol11_7/epizy.com/epiz_22618765/htdocs/index.php on line 17

When i change require

(’./wp-blog-header.php’);

To this:

require('wp-blog-header.php');

As suggested and I recieve more errors.

Also, I merged your two topics. Please do not submit multiple topics about the exact same issue, that doesn’t help anyone. There are plenty of people here who frequently check the forum and who are willing to help you, even if they don’t check every topic every five minutes.
