I noticed a message while in virtual min talking about php permissions and symbolic links. (See attached file) Upon applying the fixes, three of my sites using a content management system are showing a 500 internal server error.
I need to understand what was changed during the “fix” process.
How can I reverse these fixes at least temporarily until I find a working permanent fix?
Should always do a search first. Found the answers @ post https://virtualmin.com/node/24493.
If you receive a 500 error after the security fix, correcting that is usually fairly simple (and often just a matter of tweaking your .htaccess file).
You can see exactly what needs fixed by reviewing the error in $HOME/logs/error_log.
It sounds like you may have gotten some of that straightened out now though, which is great
Thank you Eric.
Is there any thing these patches could have done that would make it not possible to login to a content manager, such as wordpress or MOXx?
Not that I know of, but you may want to review those Apache error logs just to make sure nothing shows up in there.
