Support » Fixing WordPress » Editing Not Working

  • The Edit option for any of the pages on my website are not working. It just shows a blank white page and never loads. I’m also having a problem updating since whenever I press “Update Now” it leads me around to a page that says “Congratulations on updating to WordPress 5.2.1” and never actually updates. I don’t know if those issues are related but I thought i’d include both just in case.

    Try downloading WordPress again, access your server via SFTP or FTP, or a file manager in your hosting account’s control panel (consult your hosting provider’s documentation for specifics on these), and delete then replace your copies of everything on the server except the wp-config.php file and the /wp-content/ directory with fresh copies from the download. This will effectively replace all of your core files without damaging your content and settings.

    Some uploaders tend to be unreliable when overwriting files, so don’t forget to delete the original files before replacing them.
