HTTP ERROR 500 after Apache upgrade

edited July 2017 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8

I'm running Vanilla 2.3.1 and got a security notice via WHM that I needed to update Apache to remove Frontpage. Unfortunately, now the links to individual discussions no longer work. I get an HTTP ERROR 500 for each one.

I tried a fresh install of Vanilla 2.3.1 with a new database, but got the same exact problem - ie., clicking the default "Congrats, you've got a sweet new forum" discussion link leads to an HTTP ERROR 500.

I did the update using EasyApache 3 (v3.34.13). I used the Basic Apache 2.2 (1) Profile:

Apache 2.2

Server Stats, according to cPanel:
cPanel 5.6.31
Apache 5.6.31
PHP 5.6.31
MySQL 5.6.31
Perl 5.10.1

The Private Message links still work fine, by the way.

Any ideas on what could be causing this?

    I think this was fixed... Apache and PHP were rebuilt to include mbstrings for PHP 5.6.31. I think this should resolve the errors with the links attempting to call the mbstrings functions. So far, so good.
