Site does not display, but database is intact (4 posts)

    My database has been checked by the hosting company.
    Everything is correct from their point of view.

    I can connect to c-panel and access all files.

    The site does not display in either IE or Firefox.

    They suggested that it is in a file that WordPress uses to call the database and display the pages...whatever that is.

    Can anyone help???

    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 default 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?

    - increasing the memory available to PHP?

    Hmmm.....but I can't deactivate the plugins ...
    I can't login to wp-admin

    I can login to cpanel and file manager.

    I think I 'might' have to reinstall WP and hope that my database of articles etc. will stay intact.

    Is there a backdoor into wp-admin that I don't know about?
    All I have done to try is using my site name and /wp-admin after, but it gives me a 404 error page :-(

    Try:
    - switching to the default theme by renaming your current theme's folder in wp-content/themes using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin.
