HTTP error 500


A small minority of users report seeing this error message after installation:



Unable to replicate. Although our indications suggest this is caused by one-click phpBB installers provided by web hosting companies. 


If you used a one-click installer, try re-installing manually. 

For other cases: Please message us with the following information:

  • The version of PHP running on your server
  • The version of phpBB you have installed
  • A copy of your server error log (if possible)
  • Any other information that might be useful (such as any other installed extensions)

Your web host might also be able to identify the specific issue on their end.
