    Hi Mark,

    Hope you are doing good today.

    The most common reasons for this error are:
    - exceeding your PHP memory limit
    - invalid file / folder permissions
    - wrong entries in .htaccess file

    To check exactly what is causing the error on your site you will need to turn on debugging mode.

    Can you add this code to your wp-config.php file:

    define('WP_DEBUG', true);
    define('WP_DEBUG_LOG', true);
    define('WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY', false);

    This will generate in the wp-content folder a debug.log file. Please attach it to the answer or share on dropbox. Thanks to this file we will understand what is causing the error.

    Kind Regards,
