HTTP 500 error


I got that Error " HTTP 500" when I try to use the DFP2.
I set the Servertime to 900 but the error shows up.
The file is 2,5 MB big. 2 of 5 variations of the upload are uploaded, the rest not.
My server limit is 10MB, so the file size couldnt be it.

the HTTP 500 is a generic error that just translates to "An error has occurred". We will need to know the specific error that has occured to trouble shoot the problem.

Are you using IE? If so try using FireFox.

In internet explorer there is a setting to "Display Friendly HTTP Error Messages". This setting is turned on on your computer so you are not getting the full error. To be able to debug the problem Friendly Error messages will need to be turned off so that IE will display the actual error.
In IE go to Tool -> Internet Options. Click the Advanced tab un check the option to "Display Friendly HTTP Error Messages"

Are you testing locally, in IIS 7? If so:
To enable the more advanced error messaging in IIS 7 you will need to do the following:
1) Go to Control Panel > Administrative Tools
2) Open the IIS control panel and open the ASP option
3) At the top of the ASP control area select Display: Friendly Names
4) Now go down to the Compilation area and expand Debugging Properties
5) In debugging properties make sure to set Enable Client -side Debugging, Enable Server -side debugging, and Send Errors to Browser to TRUE. Make sure to click the Apply on the right side of the page.
6) After setting the debugging you must go back to the IIS control panel and using the controls on the right side restart the server.
This will enable debugging info to display when an error occurs. This should be turned on while testing and should not be left enabled for a live server.

once we know the actual error, we can try to figure the cause.

This is the Error in both iE7 and FF3013:

Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

In my upload folder there are files like :


The test-image is 2,75 MB big.

Here are a couple of things to try:

1) try using the DFP 2 Beta Build, it is available in the Beta Builds Section of the DFP Download page.

2) try increasing the memory_limit setting int the php.ini file, try using:
memory_limit = 258M

3) in order for the error reporting code to be effective, it must be at line 1 of your page. move this code:



to line 1.

It does not work with the BETA version, too!!!!

Little question.

why should I change my php.ini?
why should I use a not official released BETA version?

Normaly, when I buy something it works, like all your other products. Thsi is real strange. it feels like let the cutomers check all the up coming errors.

I will go back to DFP1. and wait till you fix it somewhere in time.

You will need to change the php.ini file to account for server settings that may prevent you from uploading larger images. You say this page will upload some of the files, but not all of them, so there is a server setting that is preventing Digital File pro from allowing the file to be uploaded. Editing the php.ini file allows you to change the server settings that are preventing the upload.

When uploading an image and resizing it, the GD Library needs to be able to use a lot of memory. Changing the memory_limit setting in the php.ini file will allow the GD library use of the memory it needs.

As for using the beta Build, there was a bug found where in some cases the uploaded files where being given strange names like:

This is fixed in the beta build. we make this available for people having this problem.
