  2. i need help !
    i edited the theme i just removed a name and my whole dashboard has the error wordpress and the site itself help?

  3. Thanks, I found faulty plugins, so I deleted them and updated what could be updated. Now I am seeking help with technical issues preventing me from updating themes…

  4. How can I "Go into your WordPress admin area. Hover over Settings, and select Permalinks. Scroll down to the bottom of the page, and click Save Changes." when I don't have acces to my site because of the error in the first place?
    In my case it was the WordPress Google Analytics plug-in.

  5. hi, thanks for the video. I know the cause of the error 500 which is happened when installing woocommerce. I contacted the people who made my site and they fixed it but they wanna charge me extra to find out the real cause why the error shows up when installing woocommerce.. thank you!

  6. Great tips! The 500 Internal Server error was only on our Admin panel, btw, not on the live site; the 500 server error is now gone after I renamed .htaccess and resaved Permalinks, but received an error on the top of the Permalinks page: "Permalink structure updated. Remove write access on web.config file now!" A new .htaccess file was also NOT generated. I had to manually re-create and save it. I would like to understand what this error is I see on the Permalinks page and how to fix it. We self-host on a windows server. Many thanks!

  7. I had memory limit issue. The hosting company upgraded and I had to add the command in config file. Thank you. It worked for me.
