    You can try enabling wp_debug in the wp-config.php file, which might give you a more robust error message.

    Otherwise, this could be a server issue, or a plugin/theme issue. I’d say start with debug, then try deactivating all your plugins and switching to the default theme.

    I ran into this issue on a development site, where both the front end and back end started generating the single word, “error”, soon after I visited the home page. I believe I tracked it down to the fact that in Better WP Security I had checked “Enable 404 Detection”, and since the site is still in development, a script was generating lots of 404s — which caused my IP to get locked out for 15 minutes. (I had forgotten to add my IP to the plugin’s “404 White List”.)
