    Hi,

    I had a sudden problem with my WordPress site where I couldn't log in. I reviewed wordpress.org for information and followed the directions recommended, disabled plugins, changed the theme, etc. Nothing worked so I had to uninstall and then re-install WordPress. I did back up by site before I did this and then restored it.

    Re-installing fixed the problem. I can now log into my site. However, nothing is there--only the home page displays--all other pages and posts are gone. What do I need to do to restore my former pages and posts? Or, did I wipe them out some how?

    The site is http://www.wtsolutions.biz.

    You need to point your site to the MySQL Database where your posts and pages are located:

    edit wp-config.php

    I checked the file and it looks correct.

    And this database is where the posts are (not a new one)?

    Yes.

    Was your old site using a child theme?

    First, rename your .htaccess file to old.htaccess.

    Then rename current theme folder to old-themefoldername, manually update WordPress, rename plugins folder to old-plugins, upload the default (unedited) twenty eleven theme, run site. This will rule out file issues for now.

    OK, I did that and here is what it looks like: http://www.wtsolutions.biz.

    There is no original content displaying.

    It appears to me your database is empty of your posts and pages.

    Did you have a backup of db that you used to create this db? It's not really a random issue...the site is now up to date (although not sure why the sample post is from june)
