Can't login Using WP-ADMIN - Blank White Screen (9 posts)

    Without any recent changes that I am aware of I am no longer able to use wp-admin to login. Instead I get only a blank white screen. The website is working fine other than that. I also have two other WP websites working fine using wp-admin to login on the same server. I have tried all the steps recommended in other like threads, but no resolution so far.

    Step 1. Renamed Plugins folder
    Step 2. Renamed current theme "Easel" to WordPress "Twentytwelve"
    Activated Debug and attempted to login:
    [16-Apr-2013 18:51:10 UTC] PHP Notice: wp_enqueue_script was called incorrectly. Scripts and styles should not be registered or enqueued until the wp_enqueue_scripts, admin_enqueue_scripts, or init hooks. Please see Debugging in WordPress for more information. (This message was added in version 3.3.) in /home/onvigil7/public_html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 2959

    Here's the code from functions.php
    * Is the server running earlier than 1.5.0 version of lighttpd?
    * @since 2.5.0
    * @return bool Whether the server is running lighttpd < 1.5.0

    function is_lighttpd_before_150() {
    	$server_parts = explode( '/', isset( $_SERVER['SERVER_SOFTWARE'] )? $_SERVER['SERVER_SOFTWARE'] : '' );
    	$server_parts[1] = isset( $server_parts[1] )? $server_parts[1] : '';
    	return  'lighttpd' == $server_parts[0] && -1 == version_compare( $server_parts[1], '1.5.0' );

    I hope you can help and your expertise is appreciated. If additional information is required please let me know. Thanks!

    Renamed current theme "Easel" to WordPress "Twentytwelve"

    Can you please clarify:

    1. did you renamed "Easel" to something else so that "Twentytwelve" can take over, OR

    2. did you literally Renamed current theme "Easel" to WordPress "Twentytwelve?

    I first renamed easel to xeasel and then renamed Twentytwelve to easel. Twentytwelve displayed as the current them but when attempting to login using wp-admin there was no difference.

    Try adding wp-login.php on the end of your URL for example:

    If WordPress is installed to your root directory:

    If WordPress is installed in a sub-directory:

    This worked for me when renaming my plugins folder didn't work.

    The only other thing I can think of is that one of the files in the theme folder has become corrupted, try copying the Theme folder from a fresh copy of WordPress and if you made changes to any theme files you can copy these across individually (painstaking process for a lot of files, but it may work).

    I would strongly suggest creating a Child Theme rather than copying to the original Theme folder. You can find more information about that here.

    Thanks for the info. When I access wp-login.php and entered the tje website password it was rejected. I tried this twice but now locked out by server software for a minimun of 1 hour or more. I requested a password reset from the login screen but I will have to wait until my IP address is unblocked.
