can anyone tell me why the web setup wizard is not working, I get this page isn't working 500 error. This is the only thing that isn't working on my site.
Well as you mention that you are facing 500 internal server error - so first we exactly needs to identify whats the error is there !
do one thing - from your magento 2 root directory/app/bootstrap.php file
open bootstrap.php file - and uncomment the below line by removing # :
then it will display the error on the browser , post that error so its help us to troubleshoot the issue !
Hope it helps
