    turn on WP_DEBUG in wp-config.php, see if any errors show

    browse CPANEL’s error logs, see if any file in particular is breaking everything.

    rename the .htaccess to .htaccess_no or wtv, (biggest cause of 500s imho), then try to get into /wp-admin/

    if everything broke during plugin updates, than that’s your biggest clue, there’s no doubt its some bad code in the plugins.. and maybe something else broke during troubleshooting (trying to fix thing one, accidentally break thing two – now two problems that need to be solved). Changing the names of the /plugins/ dir should of fixed things, maybe revisit that as well.

    all your content is salvageable, I wouldn’t worry about losing it (as long as you don’t delete anything and you’re backing things up), just need to pinpoint what’s causing the 500.
