LESS Compiler + 500 Internal Server Error

4 posts in this topic

I'm in the process of setting up a dedicated Wordpress multisite hosting environment and am working on transferring over some of my clients' websites. I seem to be running into an issue however in that the LESS/CSS compiler isn't able to create the file it wants to. When I view the site, all of the styles are messed up because the compiled css is throwing the following error:


<link id="pagelines-less-css" media="all" type="text/css" href="http://paddi.kether-interactive.ca/wp-content/themes/pagelines/pagelines-compiled-css-6_1358312644/" rel="stylesheet">
<title>500 Internal Server Error</title>
<h1>Internal Server Error</h1>
<p>The server encountered an internal error or
misconfiguration and was unable to complete
your request.</p>
<p>Please contact the server administrator,
webmaster@kether-interactive.ca and inform them of the time the error occurred,
and anything you might have done that may have
caused the error.</p>
<p>More information about this error may be available
in the server error log.</p>

(Just for the sake of clarity, everything in between the <link></link> is what is displayed from Firebug when I open the css file)


Are there specific server modules or settings that I need to have set for this to compile properly? I've tried stripping all but the essentials from my Wordpress .htaccess file, changing file permissions, and more... nothing seems to work and I'm wondering if there's some php module or something I need to install to get this working?

Hi there, I'll need to check that with the developer team when they come in to be able to get a definitive answer for you.


However, looking on a previous thread for a customer who had the same issue on a multisite setup Simon's suggested the below which worked for that client and could help.


Add to wp-config.php:

define( 'PL_NO_DYNAMIC_URL', true );

      Hey Guys, i have been having some fun with PL5, on my test site, still learning and trying to master 3 sections a day, am happy the launch has been postponed its for the best lets master it as much as possible.
      But we still gat to eat with DMS for now, so my issue has been on how to reduce my pin pad size in pinspro, right now it display 3 in a row, like the default theme, but i want it to display 4 in a row, if i reduce my screen resolution to 90% it becomes 4 in a row, that is the perfect size, i cant see any css on the forum be able to reduce the size,  so guys please, please this is very important, i need the css to adjust the size, of all the css @Danny has provided on the forum i cant see anyone that focus on the size reduction except on hiding the bottom meta area, mine is just to reduce the size, checkout the images below, the image with 4 rows is the perfect size i crave to have, while the pinpad with 3 rows is what i currently need to change.
      Thanks Guys for your support all this while.
    • CSS Hero question
      By janpeeters+
      Hi all,
      I was totally excited to find out about 'CSS Hero' (http://www.csshero.org) I read about it in the compatible plugins section of the PL5 docs (http://www.pagelines.com/resources/compatible-plugins) For me it's a great way to more easily customize my sites because I'm not a CSS pro.
      I'm wondering about one thing though… Does anyone know if using this will result in a heavy penalty on page loading speeds? Would love to start using it but only if it doesn't cost too much in terms of speed.
      Thanks, Jan

      2 year DMS Framework Dev Member here:
      Nothing is saving on our websites, our Key is no longer registering, emails have gone unanswered.  The DMS theme seems to be overall malfunctioning.   I just want it to work like it worked last week again please. Also, based on our your website is looking, it's also falling apart. Please Advise ASAP!  Our clients have a much shorter temper with us, because we actually offer a way to contact us.  We have reinstalled the latest theme over and over.
