How to Fix WordPress White Screen

If your WordPress opens to a blank white screen, there's something that needs to be fixed. There are a few workarounds you can follow below.

Method 1 - Disable all functions of your plugin

One of the easiest ways is to go to your hosting control panel's file manager and rename the plugin folder.

Suppose there are plugins named akismet, xyz, and abc. In the file manager, we rename the plugin at /public_html/wp-content/plugins/

Change or rename the plugin, for example akismet to akismet-OFF etc. The goal is to disable the plugin only, by renaming the plugin folder.

Method 2 - Change WordPress Theme

It's easy to do, you just need to rename the WordPress theme folder in the wp-content/theme/ path.

Method 3 - Check if WordPress is Corrupt

The last method is to check the integrity of your WordPress files for corruption. Usually, most of these issues are caused by deleted files, or maybe one of your files has been injected with malware.

To fix this, you can backup your web files and database first, then patch. Overwrite all WordPress component files other than in the wp-config.php and wp-content folders.

An alternative way is to restore from a backup. You can check with our support team for backup availability on your hosting.
