9 Common WordPress Errors

Written by

WordPress is a very popular CMS. It is very easy to use. But there are common WordPress errors that can bother you!

At CHECK WEBSITE DEMO, I have shared a tutorial on how to fix many popular WordPress errors.

Today in this post I will show you some common WordPress errors and how to fix them.

So let’s start…

1. 500 Internal Server Error

500 Internal Server Error is the very most confusing error for a WordPress user. This is a common error and occurs when some unexpected things happen with your own web server (corrupting .htaccess, due to plugin, due to PHP memory limit, corrupting core files of WordPress) so that your server does not provide any information. Is and instead of showing a normal web page, internal server error starts appearing.

2. White Screen of Death WordPress Errors

White Screen of Death is a common WordPress error and many pro bloggers have faced this White Screen error. The main reason for this error is PHP code errors and memory limit exhaustion. Additionally, it is also caused by a plugin or theme error.

3. Error Establishing a Database Connection

This error clearly states that your website is not connecting to the database. However, after reloading the web page this error goes away from your website.

But even after reloading the page, this error is not fixed.

4. Memory Exhausted WordPress Errors

A web server is also like a computer and requires memory to run and when more memory is required, this error appears.

5. Briefly Unavailable for Scheduled Maintenance Error

When you update a WordPress core file, themes, or plugins, it is “Briefly unavailable for scheduled maintenance. Check back in a minute ”page.

However, this error automatically goes away in a few seconds. But sometimes due to server timeout or interruption your WordPress site gets stuck in Maintenance Mode and as a result, has to face this error.

6. 502 Bad Gateway WordPress Errors

Most of the time, this error corrects itself within a few minutes. But if it doesn’t heal on its own, don’t worry.

7. Destination Folder Already Exists Error

This error occurs when you try to install a plugin or theme in your site, but the file of that plugin or theme already exists in your WordPress site which has to face this error.

8. Another Update in Process Error

This error usually occurs when the WordPress core update is running in the background and when the user tries another update.

During the core update, WordPress automatically sets the core_update.lock option in your WordPress database. Which prevents the process of simultaneous updates on your site. And when two updates are attempted simultaneously, an “Another Update in Process” error appears.

This error automatically gets fixed after some time. However, if it is not fixed or does not want to wait, you can manually reset it and fix it.

9. Folder Permissions Error

Wrong file and folder permissions can cause errors during upload to your WordPress site.

Incorrect WordPress permissions block the process of creating folders, uploading images, or running some scripts. Incorrect Permissions also weaken the security of your WordPress site.

Last thought

Here I told you some common WordPress Errors. But one thing, by fixing any WordPress error, make sure that you have a complete WordPress backup.

If you are unable to fix the error, contact your WordPress hosting company.
