  • Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the default theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    – re-uploading all files & folders – except the wp-content folder and wp-config.php & root .htaccess files – from a fresh download of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.

    Hello @esmi !
    Thank you for your reply ,
    I have tried to deactivate all plugins and even deleted them via PhpMyAdmin and switching to main theme
    I havent however tried to reinstall wordpress in anyway , I re uploaded wp-admin Folder but it didnt resolve anything
    So Yeah , I guess I will try to reinstall WP in another Directory and see if it solves anything.
    Cheers !
