Hello, I have a forum site for expats (canīt mention it due to the rules here) and my web hosting company simply dropped the ball and now I have an error messge. They are a large corporation.
What can I do?
Welcome to WHT Gazoo. Frankly, I would look at hiring another provider that will a) fix the current issue so your forum is back up and running and then b) have that same provider work on migrating the forum off elsewhere. You're basically at an impasse right now.
Do you have any additional details on the error message?
Yes the error is: 500 - Internal server error.
There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed.
That's a generic error. You'll have to look at the Webserver's error logs to track it down. Are you on a shared account or dedicated server? if it's the former, only your provider can help unfortunately.
If they've dropped the ball as you said, you'll need to move your forum elsewhere to a more competent host that will help.
