White screen of death while updating PHP

    I am new to the forum but dealing with the PHP update in WordPress. Whenever I update the PHP to 7.2, activating Jetpack (even the latest version) as well as other WordPress and some other plugins leads to a “white screen of death.” When I revert back to the old PHP, however, everything is fine. Any ideas how I can know beforehand which plugins will be safe with the latest PHP rather than having to stick with an old PHP?

    That would be regarding a self-hosted WordPress.org site, which we really can’t help with here.

    To clear up any confusion, WordPress.com and WordPress.org are two different entities: http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    WordPress.org has complete documentation for self-hosted/installed versions of WordPress.org at https://wordpress.org/support/ and support at https://wordpress.org/support/forums/
