[resolved] Can't log in (4 posts)

    After updating to the newest wordpress I can't log in to the admin anymore. All I see is a white screen. I've tried on multiple computers and my phone and they all show the blank screen when trying to do anything on the back end of things. The blog itself is still up and running though. I've tried to reinstall the wordpress files manually but it is still the same white screen.
    Any ideas on how to fix?

    There can be many causes for the 'white screen of death', aka WSOD. A Google search for 'wordpress admin white screen of death' will turn up many articles, some of which might help.

    i've tried quite a few things to solve the white screen of death. changed the name of my plugins folder, searched for extra lines at the end of certain php files, reuploaded wordpress files, but nothing seems to let me see the dashboard.

    if i go directly to the wp-login.php file, it loads and i can try to log in only to get a blank screen

    what I ended up doing is downgrading to a previous version of wordpress then re-upgrading to the newest and it seems to work fine now.
