My DXA 2.1 out of the box website gives me an 500 Internal Server Error for some pages, but not for all.

The homepage at http://localhost:8852/ is working fine. The news pages, like http://localhost:8852/articles/news/news2 are raising the error. So this is likely to be content related.

Indeed!, It's the bug in DXA 2.1 found and raised SRQ to fix this, somehow Left Navigation of include page not used correct import package file, it was not localized to use the correct page template.

In order to fix this issue manually localize this Left Navigation page and then change to select the page template to Include Page (Left) and republish it will fix this issue.

I hope it helps

    Thanks! A similar fix is to change the Left Navigation page in the "110 DXA Site Type" publication. Localization of the page is not needed in that case.

    We had a hard time reproducing and analyzing this issue. It turned out to be a Sites 9.0 CM database issue which only reproduces if you're unlucky. This will be hotfixed soon. Feb 6, 2019 at 16:04
