Alter a few seconds the side logs out from the Wordpress dashboard and shows the following:

Security Reminder
Local does a pretty good job of scrubbing private info from the logs and the errors it produces, however there’s always the possibility that something private can come through. Because these are public forums, always review the screenshots you are sharing to make sure there isn’t private info like passwords being displayed.

Hi @Christinea

A 500 is sort of a generic timeout error. There could be a lot of different culprits. You might try running through our performance guide below. If you’re still having issues you could try installing Woocommerce through FTP/CLI as a workaround.
