A friend on a private forum asked me if I had encountered any problems upgrading to WordPress 4.7. I hadn’t updated any of my sites at the time, so couldn’t help him. However, I did then start updating my websites to WordPress 4.7 and then WordPress 4.7.1. That’s when the problems began. I got errors on nearly every site I tried to upgrade. After much playing around, I narrowed it down to the plugins installed on my sites. Whenever a plugin is causing you a problem, you can deactivate it and the problem should go away. I had two problems:
- I didn’t know which plugin was causing the problem.
- I couldn’t get into my Dashboard. Trying to login just took me to an error page.
However, there is more than one way to deactivate a plugin, or plugins. The following video shows you the upgrade problems that I have been experiencing, and how I fixed it.
If you have had problems yourself, I’d love to hear about them. Leave a comment below. Thanks.
