[resolved] Blog appears to have dissappeared... (6 posts)

    Hi there,

    Our hosted blog, http://www.kathycasey.com/blog, appears to have gone AWOL. When visiting the url, I am asked to register a blog. I cannot log in to the wp-admin.php page, it simply takes me to the register page. We are hosted with Yahoo, and logging into the file manager there is little help if I don't know what the problem is.

    Any help would be appreciated. We have almost 5 years of blogs, and it would be rather disastrous for our business if all the blog posts are actually gone.

    Thanks.

    Do you have a recent backup of your blog? It seems that you might have accidentally deleted everything.

    logging into the file manager there is little help if I don't know what the problem is.

    Have you had a look at your file manger? What do you find there?

    BTW, you may try to reinstall WordPress (excepting wp-contents) and see if the blog shows up.

    Hi Krishna,

    I don't generally access the blog; our Social media Manager uploaded a blog to the site yesterday and was having some connectivity issues then, but no one really goes in and makes changes other than to post blogs. So I'm a little blind going into trying to fix this. We don't have a webmaster.

    I'm looking in the file manager, but I'm not really a web person, so the extent of my knowledge is limited to updating small bits of code on the website, which I have not done in the last week, and was nothing to do with the blog then.

    I'm hesitant to reinstall, simply because if there is anything left, I don't want to risk losing it. Is this something I can possibly attempt to troubleshoot with Yahoo directly?

    Yes. You should try that option first in view of your above post.

    Krishna,

    Thank you for your help. Yahoo was able to restore the blog in less than 10 minutes.

    Cheers.
