Trouble with WP Smush Pro Plugin

Hello, when I tried to active the WP Smush Pro plugin I got the following error:

Server error status: Internal Server Error [500]

    Hey there Jesse,
    I hope you're doing great!

    Glad the issue has resolved itself! Internal Server Error [500] usually means that there's fatal error happening somewhere in the backend of your site and practically doesn't tell us much about the problem itself. For example, it could be due to some files not being installed properly so even simply reinstalling the plugin could fix that.

    In your case, if you had the Free version of the plugin already installed you might get such an error. In this case you'd usually want to make sure you deactivated it before activating the Pro one. That might have caused your issue.

    I hope this information has been helpful. If I can help you in this or other questions, please let me know!

    Kind regards,
    Denitsa
