All of my posts & links have been moved to “uncategorized” and all tags have disappeared. My old category names appear under “Most Used” but won’t save. Also any new categories I create, disappear after saving the post. I cannot create new Categories in the Categories sections either (they create just fine but disappear as soon as I re-load the page). Tags can be entered but once the article is updated, they disappear.
– Repairing my database using WP-DBManager and Cpanel
– Updating all plugins & deactivating all plugins
– Updating my theme and changing my theme to twentyeleven to check for a theme specific problem
– Updating WordPress to 3.8.1
Not sure what triggered the problem unfortunately.

Hi jazminhupp, wondering if you got anywhere with resolving this issue as I have exactly the same issue on one site. I don’t think it’s the version of WP that’s causing it, as I had an older version suddenly start manifesting the problem (and it makes no difference when I upgrade it).
Am therefore thinking it’s most likely to be php version related issue (or some other server/hosting side mod).
