However, in your inbox you will see an email with a subject like ‘Your Site is Experiencing a Technical Issue’. Inside this is what problem you have created on your WordPress website or what plugin has caused the problem. There will be some information about him and also a link.

I will suggest deactivating the plugin.

NOTE: If you need to use the crashed plugin. In that case, use any other plugin like that plugin. Or contact the developer of the crashed plugin. Quickopia

Similarly, if the problem is with your theme, you will see a link to the theme page. And after entering the link you will see the problem below.

You can change your WordPress theme if you wish. Or you can delete the crash theme. And you can fix the problem by reinstalling another new copy of the same theme from the official source.

However, at the end of all the solutions, you can take an exit from your recovery mode. In that case, you have to click on “Exit Recovery Mode” at the top right.

In most cases, your WordPress website will now start working normally.

However, if you still see the critical error in WordPress. Then you can follow the second method shown by me.

Fixing Critical Errors in WordPress Manually

If you have not received the email notification of Critical Errors from WordPress. This will show you how to solve the problem of a critical error in WordPress.

If this error is due to a recent error then you can ‘Undo’ the error just to fix it.

For example, if you have recently installed a new plugin. And when you try to activate that plugin, the site crashes or shows a Critical Error. Then you just need to deactivate or delete that plugin.

In this article, I will show you how to solve this problem in the first step. I hope you will read the article carefully and completely.

NOTE: Also if you don’t know. That’s exactly the problem with any plugin. Then you follow the method shown below.

1. Deactivate All WordPress Plugins

The easiest way to deactivate a faulty WordPress plugin (Faulty WordPress Plugin) is to deactivate the plugin completely. Since you have no access to your WordPress admin panel due to a critical error. So you are not sure which plugin you need to deactivate.

So, we will now deactivate all the plugins on your website to get rid of this problem. Don’t worry. Once you have access to your WordPress admin panel, you can easily reactivate all plugins later.

To do this you need to have your website connected to the hosting server. You need to log in to that hosting server.

After logging in to the hosting server, go to File Manager »public_html / wp-content. After leaving, you will see a folder named plugins. Inside that folder are all the plugins for your site.

plugin rename

Now you see the folder named plugins inside wp-content. In that folder, right-click on the mouse and click on ‘Rename’.

Enter a name of your choice in that folder by clicking ‘Rename’. As I give, for example, plugins.old

After renaming the folder, all the plugins on your site will be deactivated.

Basically, the WordPress Activate plugin finds the plugins folder under public_html / wp-content in the hosting server’s File Manager to load on the website. When WordPress cannot find that plugin’s folder then no plugin can be activated. And the plugins on the website cannot display the work. And automatically identifies all plugins as deactivated.

So anyway, whether the critical error message has left the site. Visit your website now to see it.

Remember: Plugins.old or whatever name you renamed the plugins folder, whether the problem of critical error is solved or not. Be sure to rename that folder ‘plugins’. If you repeat this name, WordPress will be able to identify the folder. And activates one by one from the WordPress dashboard. You can check which plugin caused the site to crash.

2. Switch to Default Theme

If the site shows a critical error due to a theme. So the next step is to change your theme to a default theme. This theme will solve the current problem due to some code in the current theme of your website.

By default theme, we mean the default theme of WordPress which we install by default when installing WordPress. To download the default theme, you need to visit the WordPress directory and download a new fresh copy.

I suggest downloading ‘TwentyTwenty’ or ‘Twenty Twenty-One’ themes.

NOTE: The downloaded file will be in .zip format. So don’t forget to unzip.

Now you need to access the hosting server to which your website is connected.

After logging in to the hosting server, go to File Manager »public_html / wp-content. After leaving, you will see a folder named theme. Look inside the folder and now you will see the theme of your site.

Now you have to select all the folders in the themes folder and right-click on the ‘Download’ button.

Once downloaded, delete all the files in the folder.

After deleting, there is no theme installed on your site now. Now when you enter your site you will see a white screen.

Now you need to upload the default theme that you downloaded on your site a while ago. 7 in the top left while in the themes folder to upload the default theme Click on the text ‘Upload’. Then you need to upload the downloaded default theme zip file.

Now that the theme has finished uploading, you can visit your website.

If a critical error occurs due to your WordPress theme. Then it will be removed now and you will get access to the admin panel of your website.
