I have recently taken over a WordPress project and the person who built the framework has entered a lot of erroneous code, I believe. Anyway, I have been tasked with figuring out a few things and I need help.
Firstly, the website constantly hangs up and declares “Fatal Error: Maximum Execution Time Exceeded \\Filepath\SuchAndSuch.” Would a fresh install of WordPress make these errors go away?
Also when I go to install a plugin/theme it will act as if the install is happening, but once the page refreshes to tell me the install was successful, I get the page hanging up and looking like this: http://awesomescreenshot.com/07b1fwmd32 Alternatively if I upload the unzipped file via FTP, every time I go to activate the plugin etc. it gives me a Fatal Error on the WordPress back end.
I am under a fairly tight deadline to sort this out and we are also looking to implement a mobile theme and these issues are prohibiting us from accomplishing the project.
Any help and or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
