Hi everyone, welcome to yet another blog post. I got an issue yesterday with one of my website that is based on WordPress. With some research and help from WordPress Error Log, I got to solve it. I was thinking to write a blog on the critical error of WordPress websites and tempting me to write one, please help me with your suggestion as well.
It’s important to note that WordPress is open-source software and it’s very versatile, which means that the solution for a critical error might vary depending on your specific case. Mine was caused by the caching plugin I used a week before. So it’s always advisable to consult with a WordPress expert to help you fix the issue.
- Check your WordPress website’s error logs for any relevant messages. These can often provide clues as to what is causing the issue.
- Check for any plugin or theme updates that may have been released. Outdated software can sometimes cause conflicts or errors.
- Deactivate all plugins and switch to a default theme to see if the issue is caused by a specific plugin or theme. If the issue is resolved, reactivate your plugins and themes one by one to determine which one is causing the issue.
- Check your website’s files and folders for any changes or modifications that may have been made without your knowledge.
- Make sure your website’s PHP version is up to date, and it is compatible with your WordPress version.
- Check your website’s database for any issues. It may be necessary to repair or optimize the database.
- Contact your hosting provider for assistance if the issue persists.
- If none of the above steps resolve the issue, consider restoring a backup of your website from a previous point in time.
