    I am really troubled. My site is not coming up. I have tried your method but it did not work. I couldn't find the first method in my wp_config.php as instructed. Please, what do I do? It is driving me really crazy and I am restless. The site must be delivered by Thursday, 1st of August cos I already gave the client my word.

    Thanks so much for the awesome video! I'm with you up until I have to login to WordPress — it's not taking my login info. Even reset my WP password to make sure I was putting the right info in and it's still not working. I never login directly to WP, but go through BlueHost. Any suggestions?!?! I was really excited for this to work for me!

    Extremely helpful video which is greatly appreciated. I got stuck with the fatal error screen in middle of uploading a theme. I followed your helpful guide and thought it best to delete the theme and reload but the toolbar will not permit "Delete" am I missing something?

    Thanks so much for posting! You just saved me from my first blank screen of death. I run all my own websites and have never seen one before. Thanks for the easy explanation on how to get it up and running. Worked instantly, just like in the video.

    This worked perfectly for me, thank you very very much! Go Daddy wanted $79.99 to tell me the issue. My failed plug-in was woo product slider

    Sir, How to control this problem. kindly reply me soon.
    Your free hosting account is suspended for reaching a daily resource limit. Please note that each free hosting account has daily CPU, hits, RAM, I/O, and Entry process limits. During each day we record all of these usage stats. It is quite normal for a website to utilise daily limits as PHP scripts can use a lot of server resources, especially if you have multiple PHP scripts and websites in your free hosting account.

    Your account was suspended because you hit the CPU Limit .

    It works pretty well.But i think i am having a problem with my current theme, not really a plugging in this case. My site is still displaying a white screen of death

  12. Elie Allaissem

    It works like charm. I was stuck at a blank screen for about 3 days. I tried and changed more than 4 themes. The same blank screen with only words. I watched your video yesterday and followed through. Where you replace 'false' with 'true', I just removed the space and boom. My site was back. Thank thank thank so much. You make it easy and straight forward to understand. With you I hope every non techy person can become a WP pro. Thanks

    Hello. Loved the video but this did not solve my problem. I am facing this for days and my website issue is a little bit different.. It started when I installed a newsletter plugin. Half of the time when I load my website or wordpress panel, it either shows a black screen in the middle of a white screen or it just gets timed out. And then after a while my website comes back like normal. Then the same again. No error message or nothing shows on the screen with the debug being turned true, Nothing shows when I install and copy paste the plugin detective url. I tried deactivating and activating the plugins through both file manager and database, changing php versions, changing my browsers, clearing cache, changing memory limit to 64M, 96M, 128M. 256M, replacing all core files with fresh new downloads except the wp-config & wp-content. But nothing works. Is this a hosting problem? Can you help me?

    Hello! So I tried everything but the pages are still blank. When I changed the WP_DEBUG, there were no error messeges displayed. I don't know what to do anymore. Can someone please tell me more ways to fix this problem? Thank you! 🙂
