But still, users sometimes face errors they cannot fix themselves and feel stuck halfway. Today, this post shall discuss how to fix some of the most common errors that WordPress users encounter on a daily basis.
Always make sure that you create a complete backup of your site before making any major changes in the core files or when trying to fix some errors. In a case of any serious issues, do not try to fix them yourself, instead, seek the help of your site hosting company or an expert developer.
When people try to add code snippets to their WordPress sites and skip something, this error usually occurs. Also, when people try to add a code that has incorrect syntax, this error might happen. All these lead to a PHP parse error and a notice like this appears.
Parse error – syntax error, unexpected $end in /public_html/site1/wp-content/themes/my-theme/functions.php on line 278
This error message indicates whatever is wrong with the code snippet. It notifies about the unexpected thing found in the code and where it is located.
The “Internal Server Error”, or the “500 Internal Server Error” happens when the server is unable to identify a problem that has occurred.
This is a nightmarish error because it leaves the user clueless due to its plain white screen with no error message. With no ends to look for a solution, it leaves the WordPress user puzzled. There are instances when this White screen of death is only visible at certain sections of the user’s site. It might occur when a script exhausts PHP memory limit or a configuration on the server. To fix this error, try the following things.
<pre>define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '64M');</pre> <p>
<pre>define('CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS', false);</pre> <p>
