How to fix The site is experiencing technical difficulties in WordPress
How to fix “The site is experiencing technical difficulties. Please check your site admin email inbox for instructions” error in WordPress 5.2.2.
You are probably here because your WordPress website is experiencing technical difficulties. Lucky for you, I ran into this problem before you did and I found an easy fix.
This error was more than likely caused by a plugin installation/update or a theme installation/update. For me, it was WooCommerce. WooCommerce was conflicting with another plugin.
You can perform this fix through an FTP program like Filezilla or through your web hosting control panel.
Go to the folder that stores all of your website files. That will be the public_html folder.
Go to the folder wp_content. Here you will see the plugins folder and the themes folder. If this technical error occurred due to a recent plugin installation/update, go to the plugins folder and delete or rename the plugin that is causing the issue.
If the plugin is caused by a recent theme installation/update, go to the themes folder and delete or rename the last theme you installed or updated.
This should fix the issue and will allow you to get back into your site.
To prevent this issue from happening again, downgrade from WordPress 5.2.2 until a fix has been made.
