Support » Fixing WordPress » Can access wp-admin login but not my website

  • I keep getting this error when I try to access my site:

    Safari can’t open the page “” because the server unexpectedly dropped the connection, which sometimes occurs when the server is busy. You might be able to open the page later.

    I use the “thesis” theme and I tried to paste a code for an ad link in the multimedia box provided. When I tried to visit the site I kept getting this error, so I went back to the wp-admin login and changed it back to what it was originally.

    I also did an upgrade to wordpress 2.8 and thesis 1.5.1.

    Looks to me like there are problems with index.php, page.php and catgeory.php. Try switching to the default them. If that solves the problem, then it’s within your current theme’s template files. Or its functions.php file…

    Ok I’m going to try to figure it out now. Thank you all so much!! I’ll let you know what I find.

    i switched back to the default theme and nothing happened. It still not opening up the website.

    And what is IE and FF?

    IE=Internet Explorer. FF=Firefox. Two different browsers.

    Check your root folder. You should have a index.php file. During your install some of the files did not make it. Fist check the files in the root. Do not mess with the cofig.php file. You can also send the wp-includes and wp-admin folders to your server again.

    Check your thesis folder. It should have an index.php file in it.

    Check your .htaccess and replace the .php files in public_html except wp-config.

    I do have an index.php file in my root folder and a blank index.html file. I’m not quite sure why its blank but it is.

    I checked my .htaccess and this is what is in it:

    rewriteengine on
    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    # END WordPress

    Delete the blank index.html file.

    I did and still nothing. Okay I think I’m going to just do a uninstall and re-install. What file should I save before I do that? I know the wp-config.php file I need to save. What file should I save if I don’t want to lose any of my comments? I have all my posts save in text files so I’m not concerned with those.
