Increasing Memory Limit

Usually, this error occurs because the script runs out of memory and is left in the middle. To fix this, you need to increase the PHP memory available for WordPress. This will allow the script to use more memory to finish the task it was supposed to do.

Disabling All Plugins

If increasing the memory limit didn’t help, or if your memory limit is 256M or 512M, you need to start troubleshooting. In our experience in solving this problem, we have always found that this problem is with a particular plugin.

Let’s go ahead and disable all plugins.

If you can still access the WordPress admin area, you can easily go to the Plugins ┬╗Installed Plugins page. Select all installed plugins and then select “Disable” under the “Bulk Actions” dropdown. however, if you do not have access to the WordPress admin area, you will need to disable all plugins via FTP.

The 1st unite to your WordPress website using an FTP Client. The (unite or connected) once go to the Wp-content your folder where you will look the ‘Plugins’ folder.

If you need to right-click and select, the plugin folder then selects the name. Disable the plugins folder and name. Your FTP client plugin will now rename the folder.

WordPress finds a folder called Plugins to load all plugins. When it cannot find the folder, it simply disables all plugins. If this fixes it then enable one plugin at a time to get to the bottom of the problem. Once you have caused a problem with the plugin, you can replace it with a replacement or report the problem to the plugin authors.

Change Theme From The Default Theme

If troubleshooting plugins doesn’t fix the problem, you should try changing your current theme to the default theme.

First, connect to your website using the FTP client and go to the / wp-content / Themes / Folder. It includes all the themes installed on your website.

Please select your current WordPress theme and right-click to download it to your computer as a backup. Next, you need to delete your current theme from your site.

Right-click on your theme’s folder and select ‘Delete’. Your FTP client will now delete the theme from your site.

Now if a WordPress theme (twenty-eight or twenty-nine) is installed on your website,

WordPress will then automatically start using it as the default theme. However, if you do not have a default theme installed, then you need to install it using FTP manually.

If this fixes the issue, you should check out your theme’s Functions PHP file.

If there are additional spaces at the bottom of the file, you need to remove them, and sometimes this fixes the issue. Suppose you are using the code function in your theme’s functions .php file, then this can also be a white screen of death error. Consider downloading a fresh copy of your theme from its source and then installing it.
