wp-admin blank screen WordPress


I just uploaded a new wordpress website and everything seems to work fine. However, when I try to access wp-admin I simply get a blank screen.

Has anyone experienced this? What is going on?

Thanks. :)

Rashad Aliyev answers:

Check your plugins. That's conflicted. Rename your plugins directory and reopen your site wp-admin.

Bill Johnson comments:

I have discovered the plugin causing the problem. Obviously it was the one I made. How can I fix my plugin from causing this?

Rashad Aliyev comments:

Login to your FTP (host) and rename your plugin folder. Then automatically it'll repaired. If still not, then contact with me.

best regards,

Bill Johnson comments:

I already did that. Once I returned my plugin... the error persisted.

Bill Johnson comments:

I really just want to know why a plugin would cause this to happen? For future reference when I make plugins.

Rashad Aliyev comments:

Then upload your wp-admin to your directory. It's completely solving. Yes plugin can made a problem with your functions or etc. best regards,

put in wp-config.php

Take a look on that:


Svilen Popov answers:

- deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem? If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

- switching to the default theme to rule out any theme-related problems?

- resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin?

- re-uploading the all files and folders - except the wp-content folder and your wp-config.php file - from a fresh download of WordPress?

- repairing your database?

Paul Sanduleac answers:

Check your plugins. Deactivate them one by one and see which one's the problem. Also try checking your theme's functions.php file: make sure there are no blank lines between php sequences. Example of how it should not be:

<?php CODE HERE ?>



Bill Hunt answers:

As the others posted, you've obviously got a Fatal error of some sort. The suggestion above to turn debugging on is a great suggestion.

In general, if you're writing your own plugins, you should always work with debugging on, and test on a variety of systems, since no two servers are exactly the same, and a million different things can cause this. Pay special attention to older versions of PHP - I spent weeks hunting down a lambda function issue that wasn't supported in PHP 5.2. Always code for the lowest common denominator if you're making public packages. ;)
