Had the same issue. check the logs in /upload/log or the error.log for apache. I bet youll have a problem with your database or a php module error. Let me know what the log says at the time of the error.

Error 500 indicates server side error. Probably it is some missing module in PHP. Talk to your hosting provider. Are you using nginx or apache  ?

It could also mean there is a database error. Make sure if you just copy and paste that you check your settings in conf_global.php.
