Support » Fixing WordPress » Menu broke (error 404)

  • Hello,

    Whilst making a menu I encountered a problem.
    After saving menu it gave me a php-file (I think it is a theme specific thing) so I overwrite this php-file with my old one and there the fun began.

    When changing the name to nav-menus it shows: Service Unavailable
    The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later.

    When changing the name to nav-menu it shows a 404 page not found page.

    I do not know where to search or what code to write to solve this.

    Long story short; Overwrote a php-file of my menu and when clicking menus on wordpress admin dashboard it either gives me an 503 error or an 404 error

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Errors like this are logged. Check the error log on your server. If you can’t find the log, please contact your host.

    Meantime, enable wp_debug and wp_debug_log and after an error, look at wp-content/debug.log to see if anything gets logged there. https://codex.wordpress.org/Debugging_in_WordPress

    You can also try this: Please attempt to disable all plugins, and use one of the default (Twenty*) themes. If the problem goes away, enable them one by one to identify the source of your troubles.

    If you cannot access wp-admin, there are other ways to deactivate plugins.
