White Screen of Death affter failed plugin activation (5 posts)

    I have suddenly experienced the White Screen of Death after trying to activate the WP-Optimize plugin. The activation failed and displayed an error and after this wp-admin is no longer accessible.

    The front end and the login screen are both accessible however all wp-admin pages return a blank screen.

    I have checked the activated plugins through phpmyadmin and wp-optimize was not listed there.

    I also deactiated all plugins through phpmyadmin however the issue persisted.

    I have backed up all the wp-admin files and transfered a clean copy of these to the server (with appropriate wp-config.php settings) and the issue has still not been fixed.

    When renaming the theme I am using to another theme, the wp-admin still does not work and neither does the front-end.

    I am completely lost on what to do next.

    I have had the same issue, I found it easy to remove the newly installed plugin via ftp. This should solve the issue for you.

    This was the first thing I did. I also ensured it was no longer in the active plugins list in the database.

    None of these solved the issue for me.

    Can you tell me what your apache logs say.

    have you checked to see if there is an ominous .maintenance bak that has been created in the root?
