Sorry to hear this is happening. There are a number of things that cause situations like this. As a first step for troubleshooting, I’d recommend deactivating any other plugins you may have on the site except for WooCommerce and temporarily switching to the Storefront theme. If everything works as it should, start enabling plugins one-by-one. If one of the activations causes the site to crash again, there could be a compatibility issue that needs further exploration.


Mike! Please come back to working on core WooCommerce rather than Blocks :]
