here is the error [Sun Jul 16 14:51:05.865836 2017] [:error] [pid 23672] [client 209.32.117.251:61 31] PHP Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘}’ in /var/www/html/do071617.php on line 32

Hi @rbjassoc

No, error code 500 means that something went wrong on the server. Read more here: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-troubleshoot-common-http-error-codes#500-internal-server-error

But we have to look at the error log to see more information. Unless the default error log location is changed, then use this command to show the last 30 lines:

tail -30 /var/log/apache2/error.log
