I got a 500 Internal Server Error tonight. The only change made was the addition of a new folder and some files. As soon as I realized the error, I took the files down. However, the error is still running.
There’s no record of it in the error log.
I’ve already submitted a support ticket to Dreamhost.
One interesting thing I found was that there was a “core” file in my site root folder. It had no extention and was 54 MB. I downloaded a copy to my computer in case it was important, but I deleted it from the server. Neither I nor anyone else who has access to the files knew what it was and it randomly appeared on the 28th.
Anyone know anything about this core file or anything else I can try to get rid of this 500 error?
