[resolved] Homepage is blank but other pages work (4 posts)

    I am working on a wordpress site: greatlakesecho.org
    The site was migrated to a new host recently.

    Everything was working fine up until this morning. The homepage is completely blank. I am however able to navigate to other pages on the site and the site seemingly works fine until you try to go home or type in greatlakesecho.org into your browser.

    I have tried changing themes and re-installing the latest wordpress from the admin panel.

    Any idea why this is happening?

    Did you try deactivating all of the plugins?

    Also, make sure that your URL is set correctly under Settings > Reading

    It appears that you have some security issues going on with that site: http://sitecheck3.sucuri.net/results/greatlakesecho.org

    Hey all,

    I've tried the plugins and that didn't fix it. The issue was that there was an empty index.html file in my public_html directory that was handling requests for http://greatlakesecho.org/. Removing that fixed it.

    Fixing this site is part of my senior capstone project. My teams job is to make the site responsive and apply the Largo theme. Move to a new host, fix the hacked state, and search engine optimization. The site that the client originally has was blacklisted because of cialis spamming. I've been going through it trying to fix all that. The new site has been migrated to a new host with a new wordpress install. Google webmaster tools is also showing that it is good.

    Now my issue is that there are weird characters that show up on posts. I'm assuming its because of the database migration. Do any how to fix that? I've tried running some queries on my database to remove the bad characters, but haven't had much luck yet.
