White Screen of Death:


Help I have the White Screen of death or Admin area has scrambled or I cannot access my site at all though the url:

If you have access to your admin area try the following:


Here is the first step you need to take if any of the above has occurred.
  1. Stop and breath it is only a mild panic attack you have not lost your data.
  2. Think for a second did these events occur right after doing an update to either WordPress core files or updating a plugin.
  3. Most often these things occur after updating a plugin, often times we are not sure which one though because we have just updated more than one and usually several were done at once.
  4. If you have access to your admin start by disabling all plugins and see if problem solved. Then turn them on one at a time until problem returns and now you have the culprit.
  5. Once you find the plugin that is causing issue you may have to revert to an older version or contact the author and let them know about a new bug.

One of the biggest causes here is that plugins and themes that where once compatible sometime become incompatible with updates. Hopefully you have made a backup up your site to restore back to the starting point if necessary.

If you Do Not have access to your admin or site you need to do the following:


  1. Stop and breath it is only a mild panic attack you have not lost your data.
  2. Think for a second did these events occur right after doing an update to either WordPress core files or updating a plugin.
  3. Most often these things occur after updating a plugin, often times we are not sure which one though because we have just updated more than one and usually several were done at once.
  4. Now connect to your site via FTP go to the following directory yourdomain/wp-content/plugins
  5. Now rename the directory plugins to plugins-broke
  6. Now access your site admin you should be able to get into it now
  7. What this does is effectively turns off all your plugins in one shot for you. Once you have access go to the ftp site and rename the directory back to plugins.
  8. Now you can go to the installed plugins for your site all of them will be disabled and you can then turn them on one at a time to find the problem one.
