Support » Fixing WordPress » Updated to be able to run Php 7.1 after that just lots of problems

  • Hi!
    Have done 3-4 updates on our site to be able to start using PHP 7.1, After I updated them some functions do not work, and the site on the backend/admin page hangs.
    No posts will appear under Notice Board (Anslagstavlan)
    This sometimes comes up: 503 Service Unavailable
    The website is temporarily unable to service your request. Please try again later.

    If you are the owner of the website
    Most likely the resource limits of the hosting package has been exceeded, or a fatal code execution error has occured. Review the logs and optimize your code execution.


    Do i have to rollback everthing?

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

  • I would first try and narrow it down to see if it is plugin that is breaking. If possible I would disable all plugins and then activate one at a time. If you can’t access the plugins page because of the error, you can rename each plugin directory in your /wp-content/plugins/ directory by renaming each one “plugin_name-old”. Rename them all, then one at a time activate them again and check the site for the 503 error. If this does not help, try activating a default theme like Twenty Twenty or Twenty Nineteen to see if this is theme related. Other than that, I would contact your hosting company to see if they can find the exact issue or maybe try an even newer version of PHP.

    Maybe your Plugins / Theme have old php code running. The php Versions after php7 brought a hand full of breaking changes, old code might not be working anymore.

    Error 503 is an Error from your Webserver pointing to capacity problems.
