  • Any solution?

    Had the same problem after upgrade to 5.2.

    The Solutions provided by whooami (@whooami) worked for me. Thank you.

    Deleted all deafult wordpress themes (2015, 2016, 2017, 2019 etc.)

    Addons that are fundamental for the proper function of the site as soon as they get activated cause the problem to occur again. I have rolled back to 5.0.3 but it didn’t fix the problem with the addons. In addition my control panel and site have become slow in loading.

    hi try to set the PHP version to the latest the 7.1 or 7.0 did the trick for me , hope it works

    hi there,

    I ve solved the problem by upgrading my php version to at least 7.0 and the main reason of that was a plugin called floating button 🙂 you need to rename your plugins folder one by one and find the plugin or theme that crash your website. I hope it will work for you tooo !

    @aoking thank you so much. It solved my problem. Just deleted that BackWPup plugin and my website came back! Nice

    Deleted all plugins. Deleted WP themes. PHP 7.2, still:
    “The site is experiencing technical difficulties.”

    Tried PHP 7.1, 7.0 & 5.6 – No Joy.

    Rolled back to wordpress-5.1.1 – That worked.



    Had the same issue after updating to 5.2.

    I FIXED it by upping the PHP “memory_limit” value to a higher amount. In my case, the old value was 32M and the issue went away immediately after I changed it to 64M.



    Hi There, I had this problem with Google Chrome. i was testing the same link with Internet explore working fine. then i cleaned history of google chrome and cleaned form everything. then this issue just fixed.



    Hi, if you have an error similar to the following in the PHP error log:

    PHP Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 41943040 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 32768 bytes) in /home/username/documentroot/wp-admin/includes/plugin.php on line XXXX

    you need to check the PHP setting “memory_limit” and eventually increase it.
    Modern WP versions require more memory reserved to each PHP script.
    To check this setting you can create a phpinfo.php file, as explained at



    Hi everyone,

    I also bumped into this error and here’s how I could trace it: I enabled DEBUG mode, by adding in my wp-config.php file this line:

    define( 'WP_DEBUG', true );

    After that, I tried logging in and there I had all the necessary log information to identify the plugin that has triggered the issue. I tend to believe this is rather an incompatibility between plugins and WordPress 5.2 rather than an issue with WordPress itself.

    I hope that helps someone getting this issue solved 😉




    I am also Having exactly the same issue




    I have fixed it now for my website

    It was due to insufficient PHP memory
    I have updated my php.ini to increase the PHP memory



    I was having the same issue. I simply deleted the plugin ( which was mentioned in an email from WordPress). Now the problem is solved. Thanks a lot.




    After upgrading to 5.2 this message appears on the main page of my website: The site is experiencing technical difficulties. The main page is very narrow, not full screen, and the error message is at the bottom.
    The other pages and posts are fine, only the main page is wrong. I do not know what to do. Maybe the only solution is to restore version 5.1?
