Fatal PHP – Should I start over?

Installed WP on 3 domains all had issues. Found deprecated php-ungraded to 8.0 but still problems.
How do you repair PHP. Should I delete WP and start all over?. How did I get a fatal error? Never happened before?

  1. What exactly is the error?
    When does the error occur (installation, login, posting)?
    What is in the error log?

  2. Sounds like you are using ftp. Change the entire plugin directory name to plugins-1 or something like that. Then if you still get it it’s your theme. Turn on debug in config.php and then you need to see “how worth it” is it to recover. Sometimes not so bad, other times you have to scrap the theme.
