Communities Self Reg

Hi All,

Configuring Communties self registration. After submitting new user login info, I  am redirected to an "Internal server error..." message (screenshot attached).  I have properly (I hope) updated the SelfRegController --adding a profile, role and account ID. Deployed to production with 85% Coverage and no problems. Also, the new user is correctly added to salesforce. 

Is this a navigation issue, perhaps?

Thank you!

Hi Pratik,

Here is the full controller:
 * An apex page controller that supports self registration of users in communities that allow self registration
public with sharing class CommunitiesSelfRegController {

    public String firstName {get; set;}
    public String lastName {get; set;}
    public String email {get; set;}
    public String password {get; set {password = value == null ? value : value.trim(); } }
    public String confirmPassword {get; set { confirmPassword = value == null ? value : value.trim(); } }
    public String communityNickname {get; set { communityNickname = value == null ? value : value.trim(); } }
    public CommunitiesSelfRegController() {}
    private boolean isValidPassword() {
        return password == confirmPassword;

    public PageReference registerUser() {
           // it's okay if password is null - we'll send the user a random password in that case
        if (!isValidPassword()) {
            ApexPages.Message msg = new ApexPages.Message(ApexPages.Severity.ERROR, Label.site.passwords_dont_match);
            return null;

        String profileId = '00eU0000000jbMU'; // To be filled in by customer.
        String roleEnum = '00EU0000000eH5q'; // To be filled in by customer.
        String accountId = '001U0000009hywA'; // To be filled in by customer.
        String userName = email;

        User u = new User();
        u.Username = userName;
        u.Email = email;
        u.FirstName = firstName;
        u.LastName = lastName;
        u.CommunityNickname = communityNickname;
		u.ProfileId = profileId;
        String userId = Site.createPortalUser(u, accountId, password);
        if (userId != null) { 
            if (password != null && password.length() > 1) {
                return Site.login(userName, password, ApexPages.currentPage().getParameters().get('startURL'));
            else {
                PageReference page = System.Page.CommunitiesSelfRegConfirm;
                return page;
        return null;
