Having trouble with AJAX registration form on our Wordpress site after moving to DO hosting. Contacted theme developer and this is what he said:

*Please contact your host, for some reason AJAX file is blocked, it’s required for all AJAX actions in WordPress and should be accessible.

http://worldbeat101.com/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 500 (Internal Server Error)*

  • I tried registering and noticed the error in the console, It is most probably a PHP function that is missing. Please enable WP_DEBUG so that the error is visible.

    Edit the wp-config.php file, find the following line:

    define('WP_DEBUG', false);
    

    and change it to:

    define('WP_DEBUG', true);
    

    I'll then have a look at the console.
