Causes of WordPress Updating Failed/Publishing Failed Error

BY WpClerks

Plugin or Theme Conflict

Incompatible or poorly coded plugins or themes can interfere with the publishing process. A conflict between different plugins or a theme and a plugin might lead to the updating failure.

Insufficient PHP Memory Limit

If your server has a low PHP memory limit, it might not have enough resources to handle the publishing process, resulting in a failure. Increasing the PHP memory limit may resolve this issue.

File Permissions Issues

Incorrect file or directory permissions can prevent WordPress from writing or updating files. Ensure that the necessary files and directories have the correct permissions.
