    […] again, and wondering why it used to blow up every now and then, I realized I should have done some research long ago. I’ve been wondering why I’ve been getting 500 Internal Server Errors over at […]

    I uploaded the file, installed, kept all defaults, just tried to update a scheduled post and still got error. Have worked on this 3 days and godaddy wont acknowledge it. have tried so many things and was hoping this would be the fix. any ideas on where to go from here?

    Also… am not sure where to find compression. wanted to double check that. it’s not listed under misc

    My recommendation is to remove WP-Cache and install WP-Supercache. I switched to Supercache a while ago and I have not had a problem since. No editing of WP-Supercache needed, just install and activate. It is updated regularly and works really well with GoDaddy.

    […] Errors.  Let me know if you have a problem with the site and I will switch it back to my Custom WP-Cache plugin.  You can get the WP-Super-Cache Plugin […]

    thx, “My recommendation is to remove WP-Cache and install WP-Supercache. ” — did this and didn’t seem to work., is there any waiting time before it “should” work? or is it automatic?

    It should work right away as long as you have disabled and removed WP-Cache. Then in WP-Supercache go through all options and select what is best for you. Make sure you scroll down and have it update your .htaccess file for you.
    These are the options I use:
    ON WP Cache and Super Cache Enabled
    Uncheck – Don’t cache pages….
    Uncheck – Proudly tell the world…
    Checked – Clear all cache files…
    Checked – Chache rebuild….
    Uncheck – Coarse file locking…
    Uncheck – List the newest cached…
    Checked – Mobile device support…

    Further down:
    Super Cache Compression – Enabled

    Mod Rewrite Rules:
    Let it do the updates.

    The rest of the options should be fine and you can update them as you like.

    Hope this helps

    I manage to view the details of the error (Error 500) by making some changes at the web.config file. Check the link below for more information.

    Tested it on GoDaddy and it’s working. 🙂

    I had error 500 come up simply because I had a PHP $_POST variable that wasn’t valid. I removed it, and voila, it works.

    Not sure if this still gets checked, but I’m in the same boat as a poster above – the installation instructions for Supercache are thoroughly beyond my comprehension, so I went with the wp-cache you provided. The readme is funny though, because none of the adjustments it says to make seem to exist – no miscellaneous options, no compression, no plugins section, et al. Can you give me any advice here? Jesus Christ this is driving me up a wall.

    The above solution is now out of date and the new version of WP Super Cache works fine with GoDaddy. To install it in WordPress follow the following steps.
    1. Login to the WordPress Backend
    2. Click on Plugins on the Left Menu
    3. Click Add New under Plugins
    4. In the Search Box type WP Super Cache
    5. Click the Search Plugins Button
    6. Click Install Now on the first item in the list which should be WP Super Cache
    7. Active the plugin on the screen that appears.
    8. You should be prompted to turn on WP Super Cache

    That is it. It should work fine.

    As for the poster with the Visual Studio 2010 C# problem you need to follow the instruction on that site to turn on remote viewing of errors so you can see what the problem is.
