    Hi,

    Could someone please advice...

    A couple of weeks ago, I was experimenting with some plugins - Yarp, related post slider, SEO slug, mailchimp widget... Things were working fine to begin with, beside thumbnails for popular post wasn't being pulled through and neither thumbnail image when sharing post to facebook.

    Then a few days ago, whilst editing an old post, the whole page disappeared - everything beside the banner. On the dashboard, everything was showing empty - no post entries, no comments, no nothing (note: this is a collaborative blog I've been running for 1 year).

    I contacted my host / server to have a look at it and when he did everything was back on again and working. Basically the whole site disappeared for 24 hours.

    The site was back on again for the next 20 hours, before it again, disappeared.

    I deleted all plugins (I now only have less than 20 plugins that I've had more or less since day one). Comments, Categories and Tags then reappeared as normal, but still the pages and posts are showing zero entries.

    I have the site backed up on backupbuddy. But need to know what the bug is so it doesn't happen again. Backupbuddy is showing PHP Register Globals Fails, which my server / host is looking into. I doubt it is to do with that. What's worth perhaps mentioning as well is that all Posts on Backupbuddy are showing empty.

    I'm left confused and would appreciate if someone could suggest what the problem might be. It's bizarre, that everything showed gone, but then reappeared.

    The website is deladream

    I hope you figured this out. Say, did you find out what "PHP Register Globals" Fail is and what to do about it?
