The website encountered an unexpected error. Please try again later

This is a typical drupal error. Let us see how our Support Engineers fix this error message.


1. As a first step, we cleared the cache and then moved further with the further troubleshooting steps.

Sometimes, clearing the cache is very much required when a new setup is done for an existing website.

2. Next, we checked the availability of MySQL in the server. For that, we ran the below command.

systemctl status mysql

As a result, of the above command, we could confirm that there was no issue relating to the database of the website.

3. Then, we checked the website logs from the path /admin/reports/dblog. Here we found an error message “FieldException: Attempt to create a field of unknown …”

Finally, we were able to fix this error message on the website by enabling the drush module.
