Fix login screen on your WordPress website
WordPress website blank login screen fixes.
WordPress is a opensource CMS that is like a living and breathing organism. It has regular updates, new themes are always being developed and there are countless plugins and upgrades available for anyone to use.
Managing all of this can sometimes take it’s toll on the WP core and render certain sections of a website unavailable.
One of the more common errors in relation to this is when a website can be viewed online but the admin screen seems broken or hidden.
Here are 3 methods to try if you’re experiencing this issue:
Manually disable plugins
Plugins are often the cause of an error whether it be one that needs updating or is longer compatible with WordPress or clashes with some other functionality.
You will need to FTP into your hosting server and disable each plugin one by one and check the site login screen.
Once you’ve FTP’d into (/wp-content/plugins) simply rename each plugin individually to render it inactive. After you rename a plugin refresh your website login page to see if you can login.
Manually update the WordPress version
Sometimes your version may be outdated to the point that it won’t let you access some of the basic functions. In this case you will need to update WordPress manually.
– Download the latest WordPress version here.
– Unzip the folder
– FTP all the new files to your server except the wp-config.php file and the wp-content folder.

Disable current theme
Much like disabling a plugin you are going to FTP into (/wp-content/themes) and rename the active theme.
This will force WordPress to use one of the default themes.
We suggest you use the latest default theme which is currently Twenty Nineteen at the time of this post.

NB* Ensure that a default theme is available in your themes folder.
