Support » Fixing WordPress » Accessing recovery mode without the email link

  • Hi, I upgraded to 5.2 on a site and now am receiving the message below when I go to the wp-admin:

    “The site is experiencing technical difficulties. Please check your site admin email inbox for instructions.”

    Unfortunately, I have not received an email with instructions…I see that there is a new recovery mode (https://make.wordpress.org/core/2019/04/16/fatal-error-recovery-mode-in-5-2/) But, it looks like it can only be accessed by using the link in the email, which I have not received.

    Is there a way to recreate the email so I can view it on the server or is there another way to get the link to recovery mode?

    i have a wordpress website to which i can login to the dashboard prefectly. but when i visit the front end it just shows the header and the remaining page shows blank what could be the issue. I have tried changing the theme, deactivated all the plugins. But theresult is the same. what could be the issue. i cant upload the image for reference as the option is not available.

    I pulled up your link and the site was working fine for me.

    In cases like this I would look at the server error logs to see what the problem is. Most likely it is a Theme issue or plugin issue.

    You could also deactivate all plugins and test.

    Had same problem, and solved it by trying this:

    yourdomainname.com/wp-login.php?action=enter_recovery_mode

    Try it!

    Hi Davis @njawatech . I have been trying to reload Mail Poet to version 3.*.* but WordPress tells me it is already installed. Now quite a long time ago I used a tool called FileZilla to get access to my root files, change the name, reload, etc. etc. I have FileZilla still installed. But for the life of me I cannot remember how to do this process.

    I wonder if you could please advise? I recall I needed my log in details (not a problem), but there was Port info and other stuff which I do not recall.

    Can you advise (in simple steps) please?

    Yours,

    Crispin.
