    Here is my site: http://simplythreetrio.com

    I have the current version of WordPress installed, and phpMyAdmin 2.6.4-pl2 with freehostia.com.

    Here's what happened:

    I was editing my header.php file. I had moved the secondary menu php code up, so that it was above the main menu. Well, today, I decided to remove it. So I went to my Theme Options, went under "Secondary Menu," and clicked "disable." For some reason, it took a long time to load. I think I exited because it froze..

    Well, I thought I messed up the header.php file, so I went back to Appearance>Editor>Header.php, and pasted in a backup copy of my header.php.

    Suddenly, when I went to preview the site, it said this:

    "The connection was reset. The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading."

    In Chrome it says this: "No data received. Unable to load the webpage because the server sent no data. Error 324 (net::ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE): The server closed the connection without sending any data."

    I went on another computer, and my site loaded - except it took forever, and I often received a blank page and had to refresh. But as soon as I tried to login - even to other accounts, not just admin - I received the above errors again.

    I tried everything here (pretty sure): http://codex.wordpress.org/Login_Trouble

    Anybody know what happened??? This is kind of an emergency!!!!! Thanks so much!!!!!!!! Please let me know if you need any more info.

    Sorry Sorry. I understand now.

  3. Anybody know what happened???

    At a guess, you broke the PHP in that header.php file...

    Do you have a copy of your theme or even a backup?

    Using FTP or whatever file management tools your host has provided you with replace the theme files that you've modified with fresh copies.

    Or if you cannot get that then navigate to the wp-content/themes/your-theme-directory and delete that one theme directory. Just that one and nothing else.

    Then immediately visit http://simplythreetrio.com/wp-admin/themes.php and you should see a message saying that your theme cannot be found and it will switch you to the Twenty Eleven theme.

    Okay, so I deleted my theme, then visited the link you provided, and voila. There I was back at my dashboard, at the Twenty Eleven Theme. I opened a new tab and visited my home page, and there it was, nice and quick, in the Twenty Eleven theme.

    So I thought: great! Let me just upload a fresh copy of my theme (found it from back in March), upload it, and then update the CSS manually from my backup.

    Well, I uploaded the fresh copy of the theme, and I clicked "live preview" and it pulled up the preview panel-but the page was blank. So I just figured it was a glitch. Went back, clicked "Activate Theme," and it was activated. I noticed that all my presets and settings were back as I had them (stored in my database, right?). I thought, wow, magic!

    But then I opened a new tab to look at it - and it didn't load. It came up with a "cannot connect to simplythreetrio.com" error message.

    I decided I needed to try it again, so I deleted the theme again, quickly visited the link you gave me to themes - but this time with no luck. It came up with the error message again.

    Now it pulls up blank pages all the time....

  5. Can you get that theme from the source? Not you backup but from the place you've originally downloaded that from?

    Yes, I tried that too. I just re-downloaded a fresh one. But I can't sign in to my admin panel to try it...It just loads a blank page.

    I deleted "Theme My Login," which was trying to redirect the login page to a wordpress page. Then, I installed the freshly downloaded theme. I was able to login, now through the wordpress login page.

    The theme is active, and I am logged into the dashboard, but the front end of the website still isn't loading anything. It literally displays nothing when I try to see any page on my website....Then when I refresh the blank page, it works...It's very strange.

    Clear local browser cache and flush dns

    I cleared browser cache and flushed the dns, and it seemed to work at first. But then I logged in. When I am logged into my dashboard, and I click "visit site," expecting to see the front end of my site with my admin header toolbar - it crashes. It doesn't load, and we're back to square one. Yes, I can see my site when I'm not logged in, and yes, I can "edit" my site. But something is just screwy. This is not right...

    I dunno how this got marked as resolved, but it's not quite yet.

    Now you cannot see my site at all, even from the front end. I can still login to my admin dashboard, but the site is not working. This is quite frustrating. Chrome still gives that "No data recieved" error 324.

    Should I just literally delete everything and start over? I have everything backed up from a few days ago.

    There's obviously other files than the theme files that are affected. Should I try a new database? I am willing to do the work - whatever it takes - I just want to figure out what to do.

    Thanks again for your help,

    This is happening to me also. I have deactivated all plug-ins manually to still no avail. This is WP issue maybe? It's maddening. Help us gurus please! Thank you.
