Hello,

I have been adding Tags to my pages and posts, very simple, just add the Tags...
But now I have a whole list of error 500 code alerts in my Google search console...

I wonder if somebody has some experience with this?
And how to prevent this in the future?

Grtz,
Bert

Hi Bert,
Is it a problem with your url. On your site the tag is, for example: howsingleadultsbuyahouse.com/Tag/questions, which gives a blank page. But if I change to howsingleadultsbuyahouse.com/tag/questions
then I am directed to the desired page. (change Tag to tag)
Have a great Christmas!
Peter

Thanks Peter!!! You are completely correct... I already added the Tag in the permalinks today, but I did not know it was case sensitive...
Thanks again for the effort! Great sponsor! ;-)

Hey Bert, it's a known fact WA servers are having issues if the problem is on the server side open up a support ticket and see what they say.
Sorry I couldn't be more help to you, being on top of the holidays they may be awhile getting back to you!

Thanks for the reply William, this time it was not the WA platform... But it is an exception of course... ;-)

I've never experienced this, but if I know Marion Black, she probably has the information you need, below.

Sounds like it may be time for a Support Ticket.

Thanks Ed, indeed it was almost the only way out, but I saw this after nood in one of the wordpress support artikels that you have to split the permalinks when you use categorie and tags (Which I do.).
But I had used a Capital T so the problem was still there, but Peter has investigated it very well and found the solution for the last issue...

Thanks everybody for the help! :-)

Thanks Marion, but it is not really showing me the path to the solution... I mean: there are a lot of pages I can check... :-)
But I knew it would be a hard one....

Those subcodes can be interesting, but I first have to find which subcode it is. But this is definiteley something that I will check...

Wikipedia says that a 500 Internal Server Error is a generic error message, and it is given when an unexpected condition was encountered and apparently, the 500 error is the only suitable message..????.
then this site says it is not a client side problem and that it is the web server's problem...sounds bizarre... http://www.checkupdown.com/status/E500.html

In other words: it can be everything and also nothing... It is the trash bin of the error codes... ;-)

That is pretty much how I read it too :-)
And it looks like you can pay for their service to have them tell you that...

This doesn't say much about the 500 error Bert, and maybe you already found it:

https://developers.google.com/webmaster-tools/v3/errors

I did find some other sites that point to a PHP issues as possible cause. Have you changed your PHP recently?

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/32653675/google-search-console-api-searchanalytics-500-error

There is a ton of other gobbly gook on that last link .... if you can understand it your a better man than me. :-)

ROCK ON!

Hello E,

Thanks for your answer, but that's a little bit why I ask the question, because it is not easy to find the cause of an error 500 internal server error... And I hoped somebody had the same issue and already spend 4 days on it before it was solved... ;-)

Grtz,
Bert
