    The plugin will work & will have no affect on your problem. The internal server error will be a separate thing often caused by a corrupt .htaccess. I would rename your file to .htaccessold or something like that & create a new one using the information in this blog post by WPMUDev

    This should help you get your site back to normal then you should be able to install your plugin.

    Hope this helps,

    Hello Angela,

    There's a number of things that can cause the dreaded 500 Internal Server Error. In order to determine the source, would you please enable WP_DEBUG in your .htaccess file and try to install the plugin again.

    To enable WP_DEBUG, change the following line in your wp-config.php file:

    define('WP_DEBUG', false);

    To this:

    // Enable WP_DEBUG mode
    define( 'WP_DEBUG', true );
    // Enable Debug logging to the /wp-content/debug.log file
    define( 'WP_DEBUG_LOG', true );
    // Disable display of errors and warnings
    define( 'WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY', false );
    @ini_set( 'display_errors', 0 );

    After you've visited the pages that are causing you problems, please go to wp-content/ on your server via FTP and download the debug.log file to your local computer. Then, open that file with a text editor like notepad (Windows), GEdit (Linux), or TextEdit (Mac). You can then save the file as a .txt file and upload it here as an attachment to your post.

    I look forward to seeing the results of your tests.

    Best regards,

    James Morris
