  • Where are you downloading WordPress from? Seems like you are installing a copy from a working site and the files are not loading locally. Probably the site is using SSL and your local copy doesn't allow SSL connections... Try showing your console errors for more details. Commented Jan 9, 2019 at 10:24
  • I download the files from the wordpress.org , it is not a download issue but I think the error is from hosting provider it seems like proxy issue Commented Jan 9, 2019 at 10:30

  • These are not errors. Try to make a screenshot from the errors from the console or copy/paste them. If you can't do that I won't be able to help you ;D. developers.google.com/web/tools/chrome-devtools/console Commented Jan 9, 2019 at 10:48

Seems a duplicate. https://stackoverflow.com/questions/11916987/uncaught-syntaxerror-unexpected-token-illegal-load-scripts-php1, Try to find that error with Google as there are a lot of results

You can also try editing your wp-config.php file ( it is located on the root folder of your installation ) and right before the lines that say:

/* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */

and add this

define('CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS', false);

This will tell WordPress to load each script on it’s own instead of combining them. This might be caused due to some faulty or outdated plugin .js that overrides something else when it is concatenated.

Source: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/uncaught-syntaxerror-invalid-or-unexpected-token-load-scripts-php/

If that doesn't fix your problem, try to deactivate all plugins moving them to a temp folder via FTP or renaming the plugins folder to sth like plugins_old. Maybe one of them is causing the issue here...

    This could also occur if you have low diskspace. Worth mentioning. Commented Sep 7, 2021 at 11:45
