WordPress Duplicator Plugin Server Error 500

Issue:

During scanning stage of running the Duplicator plugin on a WordPress site, there was an error: Server Error 500.

Solution:

Modify /etc/php.ini file to increase memory:

memory_limit = 256M

from 128M

Tricks:

Even there is error during the scanning stage, Duplicator still allowed building step to proceed and showing no error.

Error 500 actually does not tell anything informative

No special message was logged in Apache web server

Config:

  • PHP               5.6.30
  • WordPress     4.7.4
  • Duplicator     1.2.4
