 I've been using a plugin called Woozone, and found a problem when i moved
 my site to AWS Lighttail, i don't know if this is the same elsewhere. I
 didn't have this problem with the same setup using AWS EC2, so there might
 be something in that or how the errors are handled.

 Basically i found that the plugin wanted to use wp_generate_password, but
 couldn't and was throwing a 500 fatal error... I did some debugging and
 found that in the wp-settings.php file, the pluggable.php and its
 depreciated version were loading after the plugins. To fix my error i just
 moved that to load before the plugins and everything worked again.

 Not sure if this is a bug, or worth reporting, but it was causing me
 issues so i thought i'd let you know.
