    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 Twelve 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 all files & folders - except the wp-content folder - from a fresh download of your current version of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.

    - checking your database to see if the data is still intact?

    the second to the last step is to do a system backup right?

    Not sure what you mean by a system backup but what I meant was that you upload a completely fresh copy of all WordPress core files just in case one or more files has been corrupted.

    Do you have a recent database backup? Do your hosts?

    Can you use Phpmyadmin or whatever database management tool that your hosts provide?

    This just happened to me out of nowhere. I think it might have something to do with my host upgrading PHP versions or something. I just upgraded WordPress to the latest version and my categories are back.
