WP Smush Pro is throwing 500 Internal Server Errors

I am trying to retroactively compress roughly 1500 images using WP Smush Pro and the plugin has been throwing a lot of 500 Internal Server Errors. Was wondering if this could have anything to do with our images being hosted on AWS? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Thank You

    Hello Greg , I hope all is well!

    Welcome to WPMU DEV Community!

    500 internal server error is most common WordPress errors wich means that the site's resources are low.

    Please increase the PHP memory and max execution time. Add the following to your .htacecss file:

    php_value memory_limit 3000M
    php_value max_execution_time 300

    This should fix the issue.

    The WP Smush Pro with AWS should work together because images initially uploading to Media Library, but Smush pro can only optimize locally stored files, it will not be able to optimize any files that are stored remotely.

    Let me know how it goes!

    Kind regards,
