  • Hi! I got this message after I updated wordpress to the latest.

    Server error
    The website encountered an error while retrieving It may be down for maintenance or configured incorrectly.
    Here are some suggestions:
    Reload this webpage later.
    HTTP Error 500 (Internal Server Error): An unexpected condition was encountered while the server was attempting to fulfill the request.

    What happened and how can I access my website again?

  • There are two options to resolve this issue.

    1. Reinstall WordPress completely. That usually resolves the issue as some file might have been mangled in the transfer and upload.

    2. Contact your web host for help as something unassociated with WordPress may be causing problems.

    Usually it’s the first option. Give that a try.

    I am also having the same problem

    @edfurniss: Did you update WordPress recently? Did you try the options mentioned? Did they work?

    I did click on the update link but I’m only trying to access the control panel through my browser. I cant type in my username and password and then I get a blank page. It did briefly say that the wordpress was updating its servers (i think) but now its just a blank page. Really frustrating!
    I’ve tried clearing cookies and cache and tried in firefox (im using safari)
    I’ve deleated my wordpress folder and downloaded it again from scratch but I can’t see how this would affect as I’m not trying to use the sofware!

    * I can* type in my username and password
