A 500 error is a server error. You will need to check your server error logs for the cause of the problem.

That will be even a bigger problem .. i donno how to check my server error logs.
but ..
the server is not mine.
The owner will service the server , right ??
so it will be a temporary problem, until the server is fixed ???

Don't laugh at me for being naive ...

I tried that.
and also try contacting the Hosting Site

They advised someone who has the same problem.
- to check the HTTP error page to my site.

Among all listed, there is none on HTTP error 500 .

So... problem still not solved.

You need to ask your host for the server error log.

With all of the edits you're doing, you've possibly made a mistake in one of them.

I’m sorry, 500 is a common status code, so I had expected the menu to include it. But that doesn’t appear to be the case. If you want, you can still change the error page using .htaccess rules. Just search the web, there are many guides available online which explain this.
You can put it on your .htaccess file:

ErrorDocument 500 http://minman.epizy.com/error.php
Teach me how i am supposed to do that ?
just type error.php after my site"s url ???

and i got a response from a fellow member..
He said :
server error log? it’s only available on premium hosting (in my knowledge)

A error page like the one your host mentioned won't give you any extra information. It just prettifies the output which will otherwise send as a browser reaction.
See https://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/custom-error.html and http://www.htaccess-guide.com/error-documents/
Need more Info: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=htaccess+errordocument

The real error reasons (eg. scripting errors in php, permission errors on your server ...) will only be shown in your error log, which is, as you stated, only available to premium customers with your host.

Read through the 3 url you had provided..
But none seem to mention the http Error i met ..
This page isn’t working
www.minnan.epizy.com is currently unable to handle this request.

A http 500 is just a "I don't know" ("A generic error message, given when an unexpected condition was encountered and no more specific message is suitable") from the web server, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_HTTP_status_codes for a comprehensive list of error code.

I can mean everything and nothing, so that is why you need the error log

Try opening the /cache folder and deleting everything except index.htm and htaccess if you can see it.

Without the error log anything else is just a guess.

Any files you physically edited could be replaced with default ones and the cache cleared again, just in case you have a bad edit.

EDIT: Your site is working again, I can see it. There was a 500 error yesterday. What did you change?
If it's an error setting a permission, what extensions do you have that affect permissions?
