I wanted to install the Q2A badges plugin.
I downloaded the plugin to the qa_plugin directory.
I navigated to admin>plugin and checked the box for the badges plugin.
I forgot to press "save" and navigated to another page.
The server became unresponsive (500 error)
I deleted the badges plugin from the directory.
The server became responsive again.
I tried again, I downloaded the badges plugin to the qa_plugin directory.
Soon as I did this, the server became unresponsive. Now it's just the "existence" of the badges directory in the qa_plugin directory that causes the server to report a 500 error.
Any ideas on how I can fix this?
EDIT: Good idea by pupi1985 is to post the server's error log
