WordPress Website Opens a File instead of the page
I’m having this weird issue that started after I requested a new root password change via Digital Ocean panel. Nothing else happens besides that, and as I can see by Cloudflare analytics, it was definitely after that that the problem started.
Basically, when you try to login into www.newesc.pt ; it asks you to download this file:
However, if you are logged in, there’s no problem at all. That’s why I only noticed it hours later after a friend sends me an email.
I have tried: - Reinstall the core files of WordPress; - Recreated the htaccess file - Deactivate all the plugins
But nothing seems to work.
Also, I don’t have any line in .htaccess such as:
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php70s .php
Can you guys help me with this?
Is it possible that changing the password, the server was misconfigured?
Thanks in advance.
