Support » Fixing WordPress » WP-login crashed after server move

  • Hello!
    I have wierd problem. My web host updated my site to their newer server because harware update. Domain has stayed same and pretty much everything else. I didn’t take any part of this change because the service provider did all.

    After wordpress site has updated to new server I cannot login to wp-admin. It always return to frontpage. And now my theme is also broken about 2 days later. All files, wp-config and usernames and passwords are ok but still it won’t work.

    They say something that new server handles php differently???

    They can’t help me and google can’t help me so can anyone help?

  • Most likely they upgraded their PHP version. It is possible that you have plugins or the theme itself that are using deprecated functions and are now breaking.

    If you have FTP access you can try disabling your plugins one by one (by renaming their folders/file names) to see if the error goes away.

    As for the theme, we wouldn’t know without seeing the files.

    Can we get a link?

    I have an almost identical problem with 2 of my 5 WP sites.

    I migrated from a Godaddy Windows server to a Linux server yesterday and my main domain and 2 other sites work perfectly. They don’t seem to think it’s their problem since it seems to be a software issue. 2 sub-domains have broken styling and redirect all links to their broken homepages, so no access to wp-admin.

    I have tried renaming all plugins via ftp, renamed all themes to force it to use 2011, and have renamed and commented out all I can find of w3 total cache, which I thought might be the problem. Now all I get is a blank screen. re-activating my theme gets me back to the broken styling homepage with the same redirect results. I’ve even tried phpmyadmin to change the wp-options/permalink setting and reset the plug-ins with no luck. The weird thing is that all 3 other sites work fine and are similarly configured with the same plug-ins, one even having the same theme.

    My sites that don’t work are

    Is there anything else I can do?
