Critical Error loading first plugin


This is my second post about the website. The first related to getting a critical error trying to install WordPress 6.3.x on a new windows 2022 server with the latest MySQL and PHP.

With WordPress 6.4.1, I was able to load the website and import the posts BUT, near the end, the server did throw a HTTP 500 error, but all seemed to work OK after a refresh.

Now, I get the same error Critical error attempting to install Wordfence. It’s the first and only plugin so far that has been attempted. I did not get an email from the website.

In my opinion, I think the errrors are related and I am attempting to find out why. There is no PHP error log yet.

There has been a critical error on this website. Please check your site admin email inbox for instructions.

What do you suggest I do in order to pinpoint the problem? One Community member who helped with the critical error on installing WordPress suggested the debugging process. Would that help in this instance where the site is up and running, but has issues with random critical errors?
