    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”.)

    thank you Jeff. thats exactly what my problem was
