A couple of things - if you are getting a 500 error - in theory there should be an errorlog file to see why it's giving you an error - If I had to guess it might be a memory issue


In regards to upload the media and it not showing - 

I'm guessing you FTPed the files - here is a plugin that can scan the media (files on the server) and add them to the database

Hi @PL281  

Thanks for you reply, you must be right for the memory issue, the thing is I don't know how to get access to the memory log. Anyway I will look at your solution for media scan. But you didn't gave the plugin name, I search and found this one (  that will try later. If you have another one please advise.
