It is strongly recommended that you first activate PHP bug tracking in WordPress, which is very simple and can help you quickly identify the cause of the bug. It' more than likely that this is a WordPress bug if one of the following applies: a. You see PHP bugs of any kind.
Where do you know if it's a PHP bug? The behavior of all WordPress pages is the same. Other invented page url (try example.com/abcdefg. html ) may or may not give back a pretty empty looking 404 page failure. Skip to the WordPress functionality patch. d. Your homepage is okay, but you'll get a 404 on every other page.
There may be a WordPress problem or a web site hosted problem if one of the following applies: a. You receive nothing but a page empty with a large message: "Incorrect establishment of data base connection." That mistake means exactly what he says, even though he doesn't say why. So if the site has been on the actual server for a long period of your life and you have not made any changes to the DNA or the actual data base, chances are this is a problem with your site being hosted.
Sometimes the data base can go off-line on your host's side, but the website data remains available, especially on inexpensive common hosting like Godaddy, Gator Hoster, Bluehost, etc. Recently, if you have made a DNS, databases, or web site changes, this is probably another problem. So if you have modified your databases or your web site accounts in any way that could influence this, please review the locations, names, usernames, and passwords of your databases via your web site accounts, and then review the settings in your wp-config. php file (located in the web site root folder).
When everything else goes wrong, call the hosting company and they should be able to help you. b. You get a 500 intern fault. First thing you should try is to save the . ttaccess that is in the WordPress root and then erase the source.
When it comes back, you'll probably have a safety plug-in that'll mislead you. When you get into the WordPress frontend and can deactivate the plug-in, it works great. Otherwise, you can also browse to the plug-in folder and change the name of the plug-in's folder to deactivate it.
You can find plugs at: websiteroot/wp-content/plugins/. Then, upload the plug-in page from the main menu where it informs you that the plug-in has been turned off because it no longer existed. Now you can rename the plug-in directory securely via FTP and it will reappear but will remain inactive. There is probably something else that is incorrectly configured with your host if removing the. dtaccess doesn't make any distinction.
You will want to see the server's failure log if the. dtaccess does nothing. They often point to the pathname of a particular filename, often a plug-in. You must first activate the troubleshooting protocols on most released Hosts. The simplest thing for Google is how to display the bug reports for your hosting.
When you have a VPS or devoted servers, you may only want Google to tell you how to display the bug reports on your platforms, such as WHM, cPanel, Plesk or whatever you use. c. You get a 404 bug on the home page. It may mean that there is no index filename. php, index. html, home. php or home. html in the home directory of the website on the webhost.
Use FTP to verify that there are documents there, and the index of WordPress. Phil is there. Once these are there, it may be a problem with web host or access. It is probably a problem with web site hosted if one of the following applies: a. The page is aborted or the web site does not return anything.
It is possible that you receive a "No Data" or similar fault. That is very often what hosted hosts usually do when they are just completely off-line. This could also be a DNS or plugin related bug, especially if you have recently done some updating. In this case, please obey the directions to disable all plug-ins. b. You will receive a warning with the server logo that the website is not correctly set up.
They may not have added it to their site yet, although the file is there, you have run your site management program (often because your major key has expired), or something is not right on their site. This could also be a DNA problem, especially if the bug is from a hosted organization, which you don't anticipate. c. You get a cryptic, non-PHP bug.
Sometimes Godaddy will have the infamous "Pageok" mistake. It' probably a problem with some of the following malware: b. You get accidental text or advertisements on your website promoting Viagara or something else out of the ordinary and undesirable. c. WordFence Safety lists "malicious content" in its scanning results.
It is strongly recommended to install WordFence on your website and make sure that the Check for Changes for Topic File against Changes in Revisions of Repositories and Check for Changes for Plug-In File against Changes in Revisions of Repositories option is on.

When you have found that WordPress caused the trouble and not the hosted one, there are a few things you can do. Firstly, it might be wise to see if you can get to the WordPress baking end. Often (maybe even most) of the time old version of a plugin or theme are not fully compliant with newer version of another plugin, theme or WordPress and this is the cause of the problems.
Where possible, back up all your data and the data base before you do anything. When you have a PHP bug, take a look at this bug. Often the first one leads you directly to the issue and it is often a plug-in. In that case, we have our issue plug-in!
Browse to this FTP directory and change the name of this directory for this plug-in (in this case it is called Pluginname). Tip: In Google Chrome, keep the control key pressed while pressing "f5" a few numbers to clear part of the entire Google Chrome page at once. Think about getting the latest versions of this plug-in and WordPress and try it again.
Think about renaming this plug-in directory as it was.
When the page is loaded, you have a plug-in problem. Importantly: If you go to the page "Plugins" for the first times after this procedure, you will see a number of bugs saying that some Plugins have been disabled because their folder does not exists. Notice which plug-ins are listed: these are the ones that were previously running, and there is no way to restore this later.
They may not think that this is important, but they don't want to ask a customer if he or she knows which plug-ins have been enabled and which have been disabled before they created the website. However, if you haven't seen a PHP bug, you can still use the above statements to change the name of the entire plugin folder and deactivate all your plugs.
When that doesn't work, it may be rewarding to do the same with the subject. So if you know by chance which topic you are using, go to wp-content/themes/ and look for the most likely directory of your current topic and name it. There is a possibility that you have some plugin/theme compatibility issues with releases.
It is strongly recommended that you make sure you have backup of the file and of your whole website data base before continuing. WordPress itself, all your topics and all your plug-ins should be included. It may be necessary to search for design and plugin upgrades manual. In WordPress itself, you can ask WordPress to do this by following the instructions below.
A prompt should appear on each page in the baking end asking you to refresh WordPress, so just click on it and obey the directions. In case that doesn't work, I gladly fetch the latest WordPress file, unpack it on my computer and build a new file cabinet with all my WordPress documents except wp-content.
Next, I load this directory onto my computer and extract it with SSH or the on-line files browser, taking care to write over my work. To view the topic go to Themes -> Appearance and click on your current topic and it should tell you the release. In the case of a subordinate topic, search for the subordinate topic and find the corresponding one.
Google the name of your topic and your "version" and hopefully you'll find the latest one. We hope you bought the design yourself and can still get the latest updates. Search the zipped archive to make sure it is the latest installation of the topic. It should contain only one directory. Otherwise, try looking around until you find the tip for only the topic, and then extracting it to your computer and uploading it.
Use FTP or the on-line data management in your host client accounting (preferred option, if available) to directly transfer the data to the wp-content/themes folder of your website. And then, still with the on-line Filemanager or SSH, unpack the whole thing and overwrite all the data on the go. As soon as this is done, your design should be upgraded!
Please review the release in the frontend (Appearance -> Themes) to make sure it is up to date. It may be necessary to upgrade some of your Premier Topics in the same way. Specifically, you should pay attention to WP Bakery Visual Composer (whose directory is called js_composer, I think), Revolution Slider (sometimes has alternative, similar names), Gravity Forms and essentially everything with "Pro" in the name.
Remember also that many of them are sometimes clustered with the topic, so the installation of the latest release of the topic may also allow you to update the plug-in. Use FTP to just fetch the file for the particular plug-in or topic that is creating a dilemma if you want.
Wherever available, I like to create simple zipped archives, load them and extract them at the end, as FTP is usually quite sluggish. Things can go awry with a WordPress website in many ways, but a little bit of predictive support goes a long way. It is recommended to update WordPress, your topics and your plug-ins at least once a month.
We know exactly how to reset plug-ins to old releases and even fix new problems. It' the highlight of my many years of working with WordPress and other web sites and is actually the way I tackle this issue with my own customers.
