But if it is godaddy, then we can vote to close the question as off topic, or downvote if we haven't unlocked that ability yet

comment Cannot Update wp DB - Get 500 Error
The 500 is a http reponse code, it doesn't say what happened at the server, which could be a PHP fatal error, and usually is. The answer here is not that it's a job for godaddy, it's that we don't know enough and the OP needs to go and return with more info. Some servers are configured to not show PHP fatals, some show pretty error screens, some show blank white pages

Can you look at your PHP error log and let us know what errors you find in it?

comment Cannot use Premium subscription I bought
You'll want to contact wordpress.com support, wordpress.com is the hosted service, but wordpress.org is the free open source project. This site deals with the latter

comment Remove Custom Post Type Slug and add Custom Taxonomy to Permalink Structure?
It is a little dense, but that would cover just a taxonomy, I don't think it covers what you're trying to do =(

A beam doesn't have to add energy, e.g. doppler cooling

comment Remove Custom Post Type Slug and add Custom Taxonomy to Permalink Structure?
My only worry then is that if an answer came, because you don't know PHP, you wouldn't have the knowledge needed to understand it, but I'm sure people have asked similar questions here before, some digging in search might find the answer on this site on a very similar question

comment Remove Custom Post Type Slug and add Custom Taxonomy to Permalink Structure?
Welcome to WPSE! If you're worried about understanding of rewrite rules, feel free to ask other questions about specifics such as what query vars are, how to add a rewrite rule, and how rewrite tags such as %stores% are defined

comment Most recent post from every category/taxonomy but sorted by date
You don't have to do everything in a single call, have you considered grabbing the latest post from each category, then sorting it, then displaying it, rather than trying to do it all in a single function call?

As a sidenote, if your new URL and the old URL were the same length, then it would have worked with the mysql query

comment Transferred WordPress - PHP warnings now
A mysql query won't do the job, as it won't deserialise the string, modify the array then redo the serialisation
