So I would like to thank all of you for your help, I have worked out the issue.

Turns out that it was the Facebook plugin having an issue so I deleted all the files for it and it worked fine.

I would suggest @havok having a look at the plugins.

What's of note is that the server I am using is logging the error to the root "error.log" not the "forum-error.log" which is interesting and why it remained a mystery.

Thanks @Pandos and @Nao

Did it work after disabling the plugin, or did you have to remove it entirely?
I doubt this plugin has anything to do with errors 500 though.
Were only users using facebook locked out in a 500, or everyone?

Literally as soon as I deleted the plugin files the forum started again.

I don't know what about it caused the issue, but the logs suggested the Facebook plugin.

Out of interest... Can you restore the plugin files, and see if it breaks it again..?

It only shows up if you MOVE the data from a server to another, not if you create the data on the final server..?

Then it's a permission issue, isn't it...??!
Yes, I actually just migrated from my last work to a VPS at OVH restoring my last backup.

Whenever I post a message, I get this server error (Apache code 500), though the messages is correctly posted.

Still trying to figure this out.
I may be missing mods or having permission issues.

I could be missing a module :
