How to Fix the WordPress White Screen of Death


If you’re staring at a white screen wondering where your WordPress website went, you’re not alone. Nearly every avid WordPress user has experienced the fabled “white screen of death” at one time or another. It’s a pain when it happens, but it’s usually easy to fix.WordPress White Screen of Death
A WordPress white screen of death (WSOD) is almost always caused by PHP code errors or memory limit exhaustion. The first thing you should do is determine whether or not the admin on your site is working. If the front-end of the website is down, but the admin is working, chances are you have a faulty theme or plugin. You can check your admin by simply browsing to yourdomain.com/wp-admin.

A white screen of death also might appear slightly different depending upon the browser. Here is an example in Google Chrome. It actually gives us a warning saying “This page isn’t working and is unable to handle the request.” This is an HTTP 500 error.

Increasing the Memory Limit
Usually this issue happens because your memory is being exhausted. Use our tutorial on how to increase PHP memory in WordPress.


Disabling All Plugins
If increasing the memory limit did not help, or if you have a high memory limit like 256M or 512M, then you need to start troubleshooting. In our experience of troubleshooting this issue, we have always found that the issue is either with a specific plugin or a theme. Let’s go ahead and disable all the plugins.

Use these instructions on how to deactivate all WordPress plugins at once.

If this fixes the issue, then enable one plugin at a time to get to the bottom of the issue.
