Problems with WordPress
Every WordPress user has had problems with the popular installation. The severity and the species is often very varied and sometimes even unique. You get a problem with your WordPress installation with a misstep in, for example, updating your WordPress or not updating at all, a programming error, too many plugins et cetera.
How do you solve a WordPress problem?
To solve a problem, you first need to know what the cause is. Is it a plug-in? Or is it a programming error? Think carefully about the possible cause.
- Try deactivating all plugins and activating them 1-by-1 until the problem recurs. That way, you’ll find the plugin that’s causing problems.
- Didn’t find the problem? Then switch themes.
- If logging in to WordPress is not successful, you can rename the folder ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ to ‘/plugins-1/’ in the FTP. That way you deactivate all plug-ins. This way you may be able to log in again.
- Still not? Also deactivate the folder ‘/themes/’ by renaming this folder to ‘/themes-1/’. Don’t forget to eventually rename both folders back to their original state.
