I have inherited a wordpress site that mysteriously broke the dev in charge left and I'm helping to piece together what's going wrong.
I told my PM that I have experience as a wordpress user and he's like, "You're on this project." So here I am trying to figure it out. I am a software engineer with decades of experience, but not wordpress dev.
So when I hit the site from the root I get a 500 error. How do I start debugging this? I can login to wordpress and have access to the dashboard and stuff.
I have swapped out the theme with 2021 and it appears to be alive at least. Looking into the theme now.
