Support » Fixing WordPress » Upgrading to PHP 7.2 crashes site

  • Hi,

    My hosting company recently upgraded their servers to PHP 7.2 since then my wordpress site has crashed, all I see is a blank white screen –

    When I revert back to PHP 5.6 the site works as normal.

    I removed all plugins and updated to recent version of wordpress, but nothing fixes it.

    What do I need to do to make my site work on PHP 7.2?


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

    Try manually resetting your plugins (no Dashboard access required). If that resolves the issue, reactivate each one individually until you find the cause.

    If that does not resolve the issue, access your server via SFTP or FTP, or a file manager in your hosting account’s control panel (consult your hosting provider’s documentation for specifics on these), navigate to /wp-content/themes/ and rename the directory of your currently active theme. This will force the default theme to activate and hopefully rule-out a theme-specific issue (theme functions can interfere like plugins).
