Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » Error message

  • Resolved nyawindler


    When I save settings of the yoast I’ve got an error messages without any particular messages related with some variable or something like this.
    Error text: There was a critical error on your website. Please check your website administrator email address for further instructions.

    It’s show up in gray background without any admin interface element. How to fix it ?

    Hey Maybellyne, What is that kinda question? I use YOAST seo for couple months now of course my website meets the plugin requirements. Everything is updated, only yoast wasn’t I did update the plugin and then the whole site went down. This is 2/3rd time it happened to me in 2months.

    Did you just update Yoast? I did on one site and it crashed the whole site with a 503. Renaming the plugin directory has brought the site online again. Issues with update? Please advise asap?

    @ib1222 The question is to ascertain if your server meets the plugin requirements. The functions.php file has just 40 lines of code. See It’s strange that you are getting an error message on line 395. Deleting the plugin folder and reinstalling afresh should resolve the issue.

    @saliw I am sorry the latest update crashed your site and glad you were able to restore it. Can you also try reinstalling the plugin?

    Do let us know how it goes.

    But would that mean I had to redo all the page SEO again?

    No, your SEO options will remain untouched.

    re-installing seems to have worked. Thank you.
