    Hi

    I have added the wordpress plugins folder as well as "web" (root web folder) to Open_BaseDir list of directories, for a domain.

    Now I am trying to install a plugin using Wordpress admin->plugins->upload- however immediately after upload I am getting "Error 500- Internal Server Error" message

    What am I doing wrong here?

    Regards,
    Arvind.

    Ensure that you use as php mode "php-fcgi" and that suexec is enabled for the website. Then check that all files and folders in the web directory of the site belong to the web[id] user and client[id] group of this website.

    I run several wordpess blogs on a ISPConfig server that is installed as descrbed in the perfect server setup, all work lawlessly. You should take a look at the error.log of the website to find the reason for the problem on your server.

    I'm having the same issuer. Error 500 when uploading plugin in WordPress - strangely, not all plugins are affected.
    Where to find error log in ISPconfig?

    You find the error.log of the website in the log directory of the website.
