Description

Hi guys, hoping you can help as I can't get to the bottom of it. I have 4 sites all running the latest wordpress and after a recent update, they all failed. Every one says 'this site is experiencing techical difficulties.

I have disabled all themes and tried to enable default themes (2017, 2019 etc...) but I still receive the same error?

Any ideas?

Hi @hawai50!

It seems like you are experiencing the new fatal error protection feature that shipped with WordPress 5.2. A PHP error is happening and WordPress is preventing the error or a white screen from showing to the site’s users.
