    Ok I've just had a very very disturbing event happen. I'm in the middle of developing a site for a client (exticie.com.au) and I had a fair amount of content set up, mainly pages and one post. Everything was fine 2 days ago but tonight it seems like the whole site has crashed or something:

    - The database content has disappeared, at least its front-end presentation of it (home page text is hard coded into template)
    - The two admin users can't log in at all thus I have no access to the back end of wordpress what-so-ever

    I haven't looked into the database itself yet. Frankly I don't know what to look for other than to see if the content is in there somewhere.

    Wtf happened? I'm going to call the hosting company tomorrow to see if they might have some insight into it. I'm very unnerved about it all atm. Has anyone got any ideas or had something similar? Pretty major bug/event to happen... all content is gone!

    Check if the wp_* tables are still intact, then check the tables one by one see if the content inside are still there.
