WordPress Plugin Crashing Website

At some point in time a WordPress plugin is going to cause your website to crash and stop you logging in to your WordPress administration dashboard.

What Causes the Crash

Often after updating WordPress to a new version is when this can happen. The plugins may not have been updated in a long time and now conflict with WordPress itself

How to Fix a Plugin Error

  1. Back up your website files and WordPress database
  2. Using a FTP client such as FileZilla rename each plugin folder located at www.yourwebsite.com/wp-content/plugins from plugin to plugin-old
  3. Refresh your website at each plugin deactivation to see if it fixes the problem.
