I have tried to deactivate plugins and contacted GoDaddy who are still yet to reply with error logs.

I tried Google page speed insights.

Do the errors on this link mean anything to you?

Many Thanks


Fahad Murtaza comments:

You should wait for their response. I belive its a recent plugin that you added. Google speed test has nothing to do with server response. It checks how fast your site is based on the caching and minimixing of your site's content. Server response comes as a small factor.


Bogdan answers:

Try to deactivate all plugins from FTP. Change the folder name "plugins" to "1plugins", and create another (plugins), just to be sure.

If this doesn`t work, change the theme to "Twenty twelve" (by changing the name of the actual theme to... i don`t know, "1themename").

LE: After this... wait some hours, to see if the theme or some plugin is causing the problem.

Vidyut Kale answers:

Sounds like a plugin issue. Deactivate as many as you can, and see. If error is still happening, deactivate all and see. Error is intermittent, so this seems most likely cause.

Check logs carefully.

If deactivating most plugins resolves the problem, try activating one by one. Check to see whether specific pugin triggers errors (easy) or multiple plugins trigger it. If many plugins, try raising memory/timeout. If error persists with all plugins deactivated, switch to a default theme. If errors still continue, post output of your phpinfo.

Can probably help pinpoint if you provide more info on results of these actions.
