Can you check your sever error logs to see if it says anything about what's going on? A 500 error is a very generic error unfortunately.

Where are the logs located, I can't seem to find where the forums is outputting them

Apache error log location:

A typical location for all log files is 
 and subdirectories. Try 
If the logs aren't there, try running 
locate access.log


Where xampp is your installation folder

really not liking how my error log is 17 megs. That is only a small part of it.

RE: HTTP 500 - Matt - 2016-08-01

That's your access log, removed as was exposing user IPs Smile

Your error log should be in a similar place, though.

Mybb doesn't seem to be putting the 500 http error into the log. just a bunch of stuff from the ua plugin and my wiki, I clear out the log, and uninstalled the UA plugin. repeated the steps in permissions and produced the error 500 http multiple times but zero output into the error.log.

Try disabling all plugins and retry.
Then enable each plugin 1 at a time.

If it comes back, you can narrow down your issue. Smile

Even with all plugin's uninstalled and deactivated still get that 500 error when saving in forums management and permissions.

You could always check with your host. 500 is a server issue and if you are on shared hosting they should have a pretty good idea what it is.
