Support » Fixing WordPress » Another "White Page of Death"…sorry

  • Resolved Bradog


    First of all, Hello. I’ve read through a lot of the WPOD threads and tried some of the fixes (to no avail). My website is working just fine (www.morningquailacupuncture), but when I logged into the wp-admin I get the sidebar controls and a white pages, so I can’t edit content. I haven’t updated any plug-ins, but I disabled them just in case. This didn’t fix it. I’m fairly illiterate when it come to coding, so you’ll have to talk to me like a child. I checked to error log through bluehost and found this :
    ‘[21-Dec-2013 07:06:42 UTC] PHP Fatal error: Access to undeclared static property: WP_Screen::$this in /home5/morningq/public_html/wp-admin/includes/screen.php on line 706’ .
    I don’t know if its the culprit. I check the line of code and its like latin to me.
    ‘<?php echo self::$this->_help_sidebar; ?>’
    If there is more info you would need, let me know. Thanks in advance.

  • Also, I did however make a change last week and this is the first time I’ve tried logging back on. I use this “all in one SEO” something or other and I changed one of the website “page tabs?” to a different subject. Not sure if its pertinent, but thought I’d mention it. Thanks

    Also, is there a way to change the content on the website using the files through my host (not wp-admin). I Want to get the issue in WordPress fixed, but in the meantime I really need a couple paragraphs fixed on the website. Thanks

    I would manually delete wp-admin and the reinstall from a fresh download of WP.

    Thanks for the response. I’m pretty ignorant with this stuff, so bear with me. Do I need to back up my theme and whatnot or is that not in the same folder?

    Ok, so I kinda resolved this (if only temporary). My host did an upgrade from php5.2 to php5.4 recently. So, I changed it back to 5.2 to see if it did anything…..boom….I can see my admin. So, I guess I just need to update my plugins, right? I don’t really know the difference between the 2.

    Alright, my temporary fix was actually permanent. After reverting to php5.2, I went into my admin and updated everything (plugins, wp, etc). Then I reverted back to the newer php5.4 through bluehost. That’s it.

    Thanks Bradog, this solution worked for me in the same situation!

    In case anyone else is having problems, check this post for sollution:

    In my situation, a client of mine is using bluehost, and they have updated PHP to a newer version. The clients site is still at 3.3 or around there (and I cannot update it due to older plugins being used).
