Issue with HTTP Requests – Membership2

After a while being installed, I’ve found that collectively a load of plugins causes a huge amount of Internal 500 server errors. On investigation, it seems that Membership2 was the principle causor of these errors. Disabling it brought the website back its feet.

However I want to know – is it the plugin or my hosting package that is to blame?

Many thanks,

    Hello Emlyn,

    I hope you are having a fantastic day!

    The error 500 is not a definitive one. It is actually the most common of WordPress errors. It could mean your site’s resources are insufficient so could you please try to increase those and see if it works? You can use the following as a guide on how to do that:

    Another thing to do would be to give it another try but with WordPress debugging enabled so we can check in the error log.

    To do this, please:

    1. Add following lines to the “wp-config.php” file of your site

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

    Make sure please that these lines are located above the “/* That’s all, stop editing… */” line in the file.

    2. Then try replicating the issue and after it happens check for the “debug.log” file inside the “/wp-content/” folder of your server. If it’s there, please download it, rename to “debug.txt” and attach to your response here.

    Here you can actually read more on the error 500 if you’d like:

    Looking forward to hearing from you!

    All the best,
