WordPress White Screen of Death is one of the most common and frustrating errors. No error messages and you're locked out of the WP admin area.
Another problem is it may only effect one area & everything else works fine.
WE STRONGLY SUGGEST THAT YOU BACKUP YOUR WEBSITE BEFORE PROCEEDING.
When you're having trouble accessing WordPress admin, you'll often advised to deactivate all your plugins and then re-activate them one by one to determine the conflict. But what happens when you can't access the WP admin area?
Don't panic, we'll show outline a simple process to access the plugins in WP database.
Don't have the time or desire to DYI your website. We do this all the time.
Select the hosting plan for your website & select the cPanel Admin button. Scroll down to Web Applications area and open the wordpress app for your site.
Locate your website name & on the right hand side, select the curved arrow. To start the Backup process.
Fill in the label and select the "BackUp" button to submit your request.
The Backups will be stored in the My Backups area on cPanel. CONFIRM that the job was successfully completed.
Use the search field in your cPanel hosting to locate the phpMyAdmin and launch the app.
Select the correct WordPress table and double click to open the database.
Locate the wp_options table on the left and dbl click to open the table.
Copy and paste the plugins listed to a notepad doc. Delete all plugins & select GO at the bottom of the screen (to save changes).
Reopen the active_plugin table and paste the plugins back into this record.
Warning this is a quick fix to get your site up and running.
Next, you'll need to go into your WordPress dashboard and select/de-select the plugins 1x1 until you can determine which plugin is causing the error.
At the end of the day we're joking-around with a glass of wine & I'm telling Kirk & Kat...that all I do is UnF*ck websites. Now don't get me wrong, I love the challenge! But most if not all of the problems that I come across could have been an easy fixed IF they had kept their website apps current or could put their hands on a recent back-up.
A few more glasses of wine (ok the whole bottle) and Ta-Da! We've got a domain name and ready to create a website.
Hope you enjoy the site!
