When to open page plugins or themes! The current error!

"An unexpected error occurred. Something may be wrong with or this server’s configuration. If you continue to have problems, please try the support forums. "

Have you done anything else with the appliance yet (e.g. installed additional plugins, a new theme, etc)? If so, perhaps one of them has caused the issue?

Another thought, have you uploaded any file via SFTP etc? Perhaps the permissions have got messed up? If so, try loggin in via SSH and run the following:

chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/wordpress

Another thought is to enable debugging mode and see what errors are occurring. That might lead to the cause of the issue?!

Out of interest, I did a quick bit of googling and another suggestion is to install the Health Check plugin to assist in troubleshooting. There are also a ton of different suggestions on this page, many suggesting that it's perhaps an DNS or networking issue. TBH, I wouldn't recommend just following any of those suggestions blindly. Instead I would recommend that you carefully try to diagnose the issue first. E.g. to check DNS lookup from your server:


Please post back if you find a solution. If it appears to be an issue with the appliance itself (rather than a local network issue) it be really great if I know so that I can look to implement a fix so others don't also hit this issue. Thanks.

This is a common WordPress issue...Google search for solutions.

One common solution is to set permissions for the wp-content folder to 755
