I was going to do some tweaks to the CSS of my website but was surprised by a sad grey screen.

Does the same happen to you? Here’s a quick fix to that. (Kudos to the WordPress Community: WordPress – Austausch, Tipps und Hilfe which led me to the solution)

  1. Back-up your website.
  2. Access your wp-config.php file via your hosting control panel.
  3. Search for this line of code
define('DISALLOW_FILE_EDIT', true);
  1. Change ‘true’ to ‘false’:
  2. Save

Hope that helped!
