White screen of death

Hi there,


My website is experiencing the white screen of death and I am unable to access the login page to my Wordpress site as it is also blank. I've been reading various help guides and they advise disabling plugins via the cPanel or FTP but I can't access these either as I only have a Wordpress managed plan through GoDaddy. I'm confused as to how I can resolve this?


When I click on the 'manage' option for my website within the GoDaddy dashboard the screen just goes blank too.


Any help would be much appreciated!

It's almost certainly a plugin or theme causing the issue.

Temporarily turning on the wp-debug will help tell you what, exactly, is causing the issue.

Re: White screen of death

I have two websites uploaded on a server. I upgraded to a server with 4GB of Memory 

Tonight I was adding some plugins to one site, while adding basic word press entries on the other. All of a sudden the one where I was just adding word press entries is a white screen.  I've tried various web browsers with the same result.  I haven't adjusted anything on the site that isn't showing up except for basic entries.  I tried deleting recent entries to see if that helped and it didn't. I am now restoring the backup from earlier today to see.  Could this be caused by the additions on the other site?
