Support » Fixing WordPress » Admin page blank and unnaccesible, but site loads fine

  • Hi Guys,
    I’m incredibly low tech and have run into some problems with my site I’m using wp version 2.9.2, and have posted this issue on the wordpress forums once, but unfortunately only one person answered with an ineffective suggestion… I really need help on this.
    A few days ago, my admin site stopped loading and now just shows a blank page (and bottom of window says “done”), however, the home site loads and works fine. I had recently upgraded to a widget-ready version of my free theme “Illacrimo” and had loaded a few new plugins just before this all happened.
    After searching the wp forums, I first tried renaming the plugins folder in FTP(which from what I read, disables all the plugins??) but that didn’t change anything. So then I just removed the plugins file completely, but again, no change. I have no clue at this point what to do next. Please Help!

  • well, next you can target the theme. (btw, your site doesn’t load at all for me)

    ftp in and rename/delete the active theme which will set WP back to the default theme

    @rvoodoo Thank you so much. It must have been something with the theme I was using. By renaming it in the FTP, it reverted to the default and I was able to go in, delete the bad theme, etc. Could you please try the website again and let me know if it is loading for you know? Thanks so much!

    yup, its back up

    Thanks again!!

    I am havingthe same problem with the latest upgrade. No admin page and using lavender-dream theme. It just does a redirect and circles my back to the logged in page. Anyway, I tried renaming and deleting and both cause my site to come up blank. No admin, no home page, no nothing!

    I can reinstall if I have to, since I only had one entry, but would rather not.

    Thanks for any help.

    Have you tried:

    – renaming your current theme’s folder by FTP to activate the default theme?

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin?
