    @escapandodelsistema – so you disable all plugins, then enable buddypress. Open your site in a new tab, it works… then go to your first tab and enable your first plugin “Add From Server” – then go to your other open tab, refresh page.. do this for each plugin until you find the one that is causing the 500 error.

    you may find it is one plugin that is the issue, or you may find that it is a combo of three plugins that cause the problem. Odds are you are going to have to hunt down the other problem plugin author for help.

    500 Internal error may be problem of your code in htaccess in root domain,

    Maybe WP installer should check php.ini for memory limit and
    refuse to get installed or
    get installed with warning.

    Thanks to @escapandodelsistema for the information.
