Why is Ultimate Branding causing my WP-MS install to fail?

Ultimate Branding plugin is possibly conflicting with PermitPress or Adminimize plugins and causing blank white screen (broken site) when 'Admin help content' module was enabled. I deleted the plugin using file manager, reinstalled, and network activated and it gave me a white screen right away. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Hello vamarris,

    To find out what is causing you this problem you need to enable debug mode in your WordPress. This way we will have exact error. To enable it, open your wp-config.php file and look for define(‘WP_DEBUG’, false);. Change it to:

    define('WP_DEBUG', true);

    In order to enable the error logging to a file on the server you need to add yet one more similar line:

    define( 'WP_DEBUG_LOG', true );

    In this case the errors will be saved to a debug.log log file inside the /wp-content/directory.

    Depending on whether you want your errors to be only logged or also displayed on the screen you should also have this line there, immediately after the line mentioned above:

    define( 'WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY', false );

    The wp-config.php is located in your WordPress root directory. It’s the same file where the database configuration settings are. You will have to access it by FTP or SFTP in order to edit it.

    Ultimate Branding plugin is possibly conflicting with PermitPress or Adminimize

    Or you can disable both plugins, enable Ultimate branding and then activate other plugins one after one. So we will know exact plugin causing the conflict.

    Kind regards,
    Kasia

    I individually deactivated each plugin and reactivated Ultimate Branding, in each case, I received the white blank screen again. Enabled debug, the errors I receive are below. Thanks!
