When clicking on buttons in Dashboard, nothing happens in WordPress



I have 4 cPanel hosted WordPress sites. One of them, seems to be jacked up because when I click on any action buttons in the dashboard, the little icon just sits there for hours, and appears to do nothing.

I was told it may have something to do with database scripts, and a GoDaddy rep told me they could try to fix this for about $80.00. 


I had this same type of issue occur a few months ago, and when I called the problem was escalated, and resolved at no cost.


Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

Hi there @GunnyRet!


I'm sorry you're having trouble. It's hard to diagnose something like this. Some of the things that can cause issues in the dashboard are plugins that are misbehaving, not up to date, or are requiring a different version of PHP. If you can, reach back out to our support team to have them dig a little deeper.
