It is a fact of life that nothing ever works out smoothly on the first attempt. If you are a WordPress user, you are definitely more familiar with this sentence that anyone else. Owning a website can be a lot of trouble when error messages start popping up; especially if you have no experience whatsoever in programming. This is why we took the liberty to gather all the common problems that WordPress users often face.
We all know that it is important to deal with errors as they arise, and to minimize their chances of happening. According to MemberFix, if you want to own a successful website, you need to know how to take your existing website to the next level; you need to make sure it runs smoothly. This is an essential step for every website owner who wants to eventually make money off of their website. It is why we picked out the peskiest three of them all. Below, you’ll find them along with their solutions. Good Luck.
- Syntax/ Parse Error
It is one of the easiest types of error messages to deal with so, if it shows up, there is no need to panic. All what you have to do is read the error message carefully and it will tell you exactly what’s wrong. Syntax errors usually arise when there is something wrong with the code that you’ve entered; as in, with the syntax of the code. To fix your code, you simply have to go to the file where the error is and access it using an SFTP. After that, click on the “edit” option and fix whatever I wrong according to what was written in the error text.
- Missed Scheduled Post Error
A feature that most experienced WordPress users find helpful is the scheduling posts, uploads ahead of time. Especially with users who aim to join the membership website arena. With scheduling errors, the problem is most likely with your ‘cron job’ configuration. While there are several ways, you can use external help from plug-ins or a website maintenance service. They’ll have your website up and running smoothly in no time.
- Connection Timed Out Error
We’re all familiar with this type of error because of how common it is. The meaning of it is basically that the server tried to load the content for you, but, for some reason it can’t. There are two reasons a problem like that might occur. Reason number one is that some other website may be draining most of your server’s power; if you’re sharing your server, you may want to consider that option. Second, your website is operating a heavy plug-in that takes up a lot of your server’s running power.
Having read all of that, there is only one thing left to say. Whenever a problem comes up, you don’t have to panic or start looking at the exit door. Just take a deep breath and look to the internet for help. If that doesn’t work, try and do your best to fix it yourself; you don’t have to get it right from the first time but, you may end up getting it right. The most important thing is that you don’t give up on your website.
