How to fix “The site is experiencing technical difficulties. Please check your site admin email inbox for instructions”.

You’re here because your WordPress website is experiencing technical difficulties. I ran into this problem before you did and found an easy fix.


I hope this works for you, if not, leave a comment and let me know so we can come up with a fix for you. 🙂


This error was more than likely caused by a plugin or theme installation/update. For me, it was WooCommerce.


WooCommerce was conflicting with another plugin but the issue went away when I made some minor changes.


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 wp_content folder. This is where you can find the plugins and themes folders. If this error occurred due to a recent installation or update, delete or rename the plugin or theme that was most recently 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.
