Hello, if you have tried most of the popular recommendations for fixing a WordPress 6.0 white screen of death (WSOD) and have not found success, then perhaps this post can help you.
Things I tried:
- Deleting all plug-ins.
- Installing WordPress 5.x versions and updating to WordPress 6.0.
- Different PHP versions – I tried switching from PHP 8.1, 8.0 and 7.4. Also trying activating/de-activating different PHP modules. This did not work.
- Different SQL character sets.
- Enabling the Debug features, logs and plugins. None of these pointed to the root issue.
- Copying WP-Include and WP-Admin folders from a known good WordPress installation.
- Copying the SQL database from a known good WordPress Installation.
- Different variations of the .htaccess file code.
- Probably several other things that I can’t remember trying.
- Initially I thought the issue was with the Elementor plug-in and tried troubleshooting their plug-in. In the end, this had nothing to do with the issue.
What actually fixed the WordPress 6.0 White Screen of Death (WSOD):
- Installed the “Classic Editor” Plug-in
- It turns out the issue relies something in the new WordPress editor in 6.0. Disabling this editor via the Classic Editor plug-in resolved the issue. If you are looking for an alternative to the new 6.0 editor, I recommend the Elementor plug-in. I have been using their plug-in for many years before WordPress attempted their own drag-and-drop editor and it has impressed several clients.
I hope this helps.
