I get internal server error on the social theme

1. I cannot customise the social theme from theme options- for example I wanted to change the logo. The option header settings seemed inactive. I tried another option it throws an internal server error.

2. So I removed the theme and activated again. I get the internal server error as below.
not sure what's wrong. I activated the remote service on my site

Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

    Hello there @Supriya, I hope you're well today!

    An internal server error is pretty generic and could mean anything!

    Could you please set WP_DEBUG to true in your wp-config.php file and try to replicate this again?
    This time you should be getting some errors on your screen, most notably a PHP Fatal Error.
    Please post the details of that error here so that we may figure out what goes on!

    Hi, further to my report of problems with your Buddy social theme and membership plugin, I decided to install them on a local host environment and troubleshoot myself. Here are the problems:

    Buddy Social: The "member profile " shows some the following error:

    Thanks so much Ari,

    Not sure what was the problem: I had the following message when I tried to browse to the site:

    Notice: like_escape is deprecated since version 4.0! Use wpdb::esc_like() instead. in /hermes/bosnaweb08a/b2425/ipg.digiadca/bizynet/wp-includes/functions.php on line 3201 Notice: like_escape is deprecated since version 4.0!

    But I somehow managed to get into the wp-admin and saw a couple of updates in WMMU. When I did those things were fine!

    I hope I can finish my work now. Thanks again for your help

    Hello again @Supriya,

    The issue must have been the "Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by" message.
    Probably one of the updates you performed fixed that...
    I'm glad you managed to fix this!
    I'll go ahead and mark this as resolved for now.
    If however you need any further assistance here don't hesitate to reopen this and post an update on your current status.

    Take care!

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
