[resolved] WSOD of death with 3.4.2 upgrade, no other themes or plugins (6 posts)

    I"m at my wits end with this error. After getting the White Screen of Death after upgrading to 3.4.2 (auto upgrade), I went through the manual upgrade:

    • emptied plugins directory
    • remove all themes
    • ftp'ed all wp_* files are recommended in wordpress manual upgrade

    So it is now a clean upgrade to 3.4.2 with only two themes, twentyten and twentyeleven and still get the White screen of Death when accessing the wp-admin. I removed the twentyeleven theme and now I get the dashboard but when choosing twentyten as my theme, the WSOD is back. No plugins except for Askimet.

    What could be going wrong? Should I install an older version, like 3.4?
    thanks.

    What does your system error log say?

    The PHP error log has a list of
    PHP Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 67108864 bytes exhausted

    starting with:

    [03-Oct-2012 16:55:09] PHP Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 67108864 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 122880 bytes) in /home1/podiumin/public_html/wp-admin/includes/dashboard.php on line 675

    thanks for the help!

    Thanks for asking me to look at the logs.

    I upped my memory limit to 128M in both php.ini and wp-config.php

    Still not sure why it needed so much memory to just run the wordpress themes twentyten and twentyeleven - but that's another problem.

    I was able to also re-install my theme and get the site up and working again.

    I find most times the default PHP memory setting are insufficient. I have mine at 256MB on all my installs these days.

    thanks again. Can't believe I didn't look at the logs before spending hours trying other stuff!

    I'll keep closer tabs on them from now on.
