This error typically happens for one out of two reasons:
- Your server memory limit to PHP is too low (most common).

White Screen Of Death or PHP Error Notice
A "white screen of death" happens when there is a PHP error on the site but WP_Debug is not enabled on the server. So, the first thing to do would be to enable WP_Debug in order for you to be able to identify the actual error and thus fix the issue.
This usually happens when your WordPress installation is not up to date (always keep WordPress up to date). In some cases, a third-party plugin might be creating a conflict. Before switching to a new theme, we recommend disabling all plugins and updating WordPress first.
