by Anna Rose Blogger
White screen of death is one of the most common issues that people face these days while using WordPress. This can occur when you are trying to log into your WordPress account, or you are already inside WordPress. The error that causes the website to go entirely blank takes place in the PHP or database of the site. The error could happen when you have installed a new plugin or a new theme which might be incompatible with the current theme. A low memory limit which is set by the hosting company can also cause the screen to go all white.

Remove Cache From The Browser

Firstly, make sure that it is not your personal browser which is causing this issue. Go to the setting option in your browser and locate the browser data. Clear your history, cookies and saved files from here. Wait until the procedure is finished and then close and reopen the browser. Go and check your WordPress dashboard now, if you do not see the white screen; this means you are done with it. By doing this, it will also increase the browsing speed of the website.
