New Template Plugin and Error 50

I have made a blog template to be used when making a new site. I selected the theme and post to be carried over on the new template. When I go to create the new site using the template I immediately get an error code 500 after I click "add site". When I try to go to the new blogs website it is in fact there... but its just an original wordpress theme, posts, comments all of it.
Thank you for your help

    Hello EDWARD

    The error code 500 means there is a fatal error that is blocking to run the complete operation. Would you please enable debug mode and check if there is any error? To enable debug mode please go to wp-config.php and change

    define( 'WP_DEBUG', false );

    to

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

    That will create a file called debug.log inside wp-content folder. Open that file, check the very bottom and you will see the latest errors. Please send me those.

    Have a nice day!

    Cheers,
    Ash

    After reviewing the debug.log I discovered that there was a forum plugin that kept throwing an error. New Blog Template worked as intended after I removed the forum plugin.

    Thank you for your help with new blog template.
