What is Error 500?
An internal server error occurred by application, incorrect configuration and server issue can lead to error 500. The scenario, where the readers or visitors clicked or entered a specific URL, and the server failed to show the page or load the page is known as error 500.
Keep in mind that error 500 is applicable when one or two specific URL or pages are showing up on the screen. In case, if the error affected the entire website, then it could be something else.
