I'm trying to install WooCommerce, but when I try to activate it, I get a 500 Internal Server Error. I've tried installing it via the Plugin Search in the admin panel, and FTP, but both result in the same error.
To check if it was a plugin conflict, I tried installing WooCommerce on my local development version of the website containing all the same plugins, but no problems arose.
I've tried increasing the memory limit in the wp-config file using define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '64M');, but that didn't solve the problem either.
To try to get more out of the 500 error page I enabled debug mode, but that didn't result in any more information being displayed.
A 500 error means the server is running into a configuration issue - I doubt it's a memory issue. Start here: Pull down a copy of the htaccess file when you get the error and look through it. Have you checked the WooThemes support board?
It's impossible to go to woocommerce in the admin panel and install pages when the plugin isn't activated yet. I've also tried resetting htaccess to the default (no change) and the error log unfortunately has revealed no clues.
