[resolved] Help! DNS Error on my site! Urgent! (4 posts)

    I've been running WP on my site for a long time and have never had this problem before! I get a "DNS Error - Server cannot be found"-message, and I have NO idea how to solve this! Anyone, please?

    What happened is that I uploaded a couple of new themes to the site, and as I was going to preview one of them, I accidentally pressed the "activate"-button instead of the "preview"-button, I paniced and immediately activated the old one again. Now, none of them are working! I can login to the admin-panel and everything seems to be ok (no posts or pictures are missing), except from the site not showing. I have no idea what has really happened!

    Can someone please help me?

    I had a similar problem a while back (very complicated), but before I can tell you if this is the same thing, need a little more info:

    • Are you positively sure this is the ONLY thing you did, activated then reactivated, and I mean positive? We can't help you if you leave anything out no matter how small.
    • Where do you host, do they have any maintenance tickets or alerts up for you?
    • What are the themes you activated and reactivated, do they claim they do anything special to your data?
    • What plugins do you have installed, are they dependent on your activated theme?

    And I found the problem, it was embarrassingly stupid... I had overwritten the index-file in wordpress with another file ;D
