    So I have a strange issue, I'm not sure where to look. I've got many things up and running smoothly thanks to the awesome centmin scripts. but after getting wordpress running and working, It seems I am the only one able to register and access the site. I asked my brother and he says upon clicking register or login he gets an code 500 error. So it really perplexes me, i believe it may have something to do with the htaccess, but I dont want to mess up the setup unless i know what I'm doing. So far I myself have not tried in a different location, I have just asked my brother in another location (different ip). If anyone else would like to try and see if they get the code 500 please let me know.

    how was wordpress installed ? manually or via centmin.sh menu option 22 auto installer Wordpress Nginx Auto Installer (WP Super Cache) ? the centmin.sh menu option 22 auto installer auto sets up http authentication for auto created wp admin user so really is setup for admin access only. But usually, if you don't have correct http authentication login, then you get 403 permission denied error not 500 error.

    When you create a new nginx vhost domain via centmin.sh menu option 2 or menu option 22 or via /usr/bin/nv cli command line, you will create the Nginx vhost files and directories. You will get an outputted the path location where it will create the domain name's vhost conf file named newdomain.com.conf (and newdomain.com.ssl.conf if you selected yes to self signed SSL)
    • Nginx vhost conf path will be at /usr/local/nginx/conf/conf.d/newdomain.com.conf
    • Nginx HTTP/2 SSL vhost conf path will be at /usr/local/nginx/conf/conf.d/newdomain.com.ssl.conf
    • Nginx Self-Signed SSL Certificate Directory at /usr/local/nginx/conf/ssl/newdomain.com
    • Vhost public web root will be at /home/nginx/domains/newdomain.com/public
    • Vhost log directory will be at /home/nginx/domains/newdomain.com/log
    Please post the contents of /usr/local/nginx/conf/conf.d/newdomain.com.conf and if applicable /usr/local/nginx/conf/conf.d/newdomain.com.ssl.conf wrapped in CODE tags (outlined at How to use forum BBCODE code tags)

    Update on this issue, okay so far I've asked others to sign up and register to my WordPress site and they have been able to do so successfully. So now I can safely say it is only happening to my brother. I still have no answers as to why he is the only one getting the 500 error. Ill update this post as I find the answer. If anyone has a clue please share your thoughts.
