How do you fix an Elementor 500 error? It’s quite simple. The common reason for that is improperly set memory limit.

Increase the memory limit

It is advised to set the memory limit to at least 512MB in order for Elementor to work properly. 

To check if you’ve allocated enough memory, go to Elementor > System Info in the WP admin panel. Scroll down to the “WordPress Environment” section and see if the number in the Memory limit line exceeds 512MB.
