[resolved] All admin pages have disappeared (5 posts)

    Help! Have been to my wp-admin page after a couple of weeks away and it is totally blank. The website works fine (http://www.fit-me-up.com), as does the login... but as soon as I've logged in I just get white on the admin pages. I don't seem to remember having added any new plugins on my last visit.... but even if I had, I would have tested everything first and certainly would have noticed if it had crashed the admin. What should I do? I have looked at other posts with similar problems but none I found are exactly the same. This is my first WordPress site so it is all new to me. Thanks.

    Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    - re-uploading the wp-admin and wp-includes folders from a fresh download of WordPress.

    Thanks for replying. Sorry to sound stupid but how can I deactivate plugins if I can't access the dashboard? Do you mean physically removing them from plugins folder using ftp? Ditto how can I switch to the Twenty Eleven them without the dashboard?

    Try:
    - switching to the Twenty Eleven theme by renaming your current theme's folder in wp-content/themes and adding "-old" to the end of the folder name using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin.

    Thanks Esmi, it was a corrupted plugin. I'll know where to look next time.
