hi. i was working on my website www.laboratoryof.info and during that noticed the possibility to update lay theme. after clicking on "update lay theme" it just said sth like "internal server error update not possible" and i tried to get back to my dashboard. when i refreshed the page it just said "briefly unavailable for scheduled maintenance. Check back in a minute". then, a few minutes later, when i tried to open my website itself it read "there has been a critical error on this website".
from that moment on i was no longer able to access any part of my website or the dashboard.
ive read the forum posts about a similar error that apparently have been solved by entering word press' recovery mode (http://laythemeforum.com:4567/topic/5222/critical-error-lay-theme-3-0-0/6).
when i clicked on the link wp sent me it only said "recovery mode not initialized". therefore i cant update lay theme like suggested in the forum post. im probably overseeing something since this is the first time ever using wordpress or lay theme for me, if so my apologies.
but idk what to do rn. this was for a uni project and it happened the evening before the deadline lol.
any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you! <3!
