Why is my Drupal website having problems?
There could be many reasons why your Drupal website might fail. It could be conflicts with your theme, modules, and/or external scripts that is needed for your website to work. In some cases the server that the website is hosted on could also cause issues.

I almost feel bad including this because everyone knows you should apply all security updates as soon as possible. Here’s some pointers for staying on top of security updates:- Updates always come out on Wednesday afternoon Eastern time- You can find all security advisories for core and contrib, as well as security PSAs, on Drupal.org- To receive e-mails when new security advisories are posted: edit your account on Drupal.org, click “My newsletters”, check the “Security announcements” checkbox and click “Save”- Install the “Update manager” module, and see the “Available updates” report to see if there are any unapplied security updates on your site!
A White Screen of Death means when you access your website, you see nothing but a blank page. There can be multiple reasons behind a WSOD, the most common ones being compatibility issues with a module or a theme. Of course, the “incompatibility” itself can have multiple faces: a plugin may have a conflict with another plugin, or a plugin may not be compatible with the latest version of Drupal. Similarly, a theme may also experience compatibility issues with Drupal after an update. The easiest solution is to retry and revert to a backup or rename your /sites/all/modules folder.
An error that you receive from an overloaded server (or a badly configured server).It generally happens when the website’s server is too overloaded and is unable to complete your browser’s request.
