Support » Plugin: Jetpack by » ‘White screen of death’

  • This completely fucked my WordPress Account after installing it and gave me the ‘White Screen of Death’ after installing it. Fix: Log into your FTP Hosting File Manager and deactivate all your plugins.

    This same issue has affected me, except the only FTP/deactivate needed was to delete and re-install Jetpack.

    Turns out it’s because my host, GoDaddy, is still on PHP 5.6, and requiring a major uptick in hosting fees in order to access PHP 7.2+

    Since Jetpack follows the system requirements of WordPress, which now recommends PHP 7.2+, the issue with upgrading will persist.

    Now, as I consider setting my WordPress to plugin auto-updating, I must decide whether to bail on Jetpack, because an auto-update of their plugin will take my site down.
