Logins not working, usernames not recognized, and forms not working (2 posts)

    As of yesterday afternoon 3 main things happened at once:

    1) My username and passwords stopped working
    2) When trying to retrieve password, username not recognized
    3) The contact forms on my live site stopped submitting (hitting send does nothing)

    I've checked my SQL database and the usernames are in fact still there. I've tried creating a new admin from the database but this had the same issue. Because the contact forms on my site stopped working as well, this leads me to believe that it's more than just a login issue.

    The siteurl is correct and I've tried troubleshooting based on these instructions:

    Seems that forms just stopped working including the wp-admin login page. Any help appreciated. I have WordPress (Version 3.8.1)

    I do believe I have the same problem as you:

    I have been updating my website regularly for the past couple weeks without a hitch. The theme was "Start Point" and our domain is hosted by BlueHost. Last night I was editing some code while in the dashboard and got your generic Windows error message that the website couldn't be found, the server was either down or there was a programming error. Our website, avalonfarmsvt.com is just a blank white page.

    Through my browser history I went to http://avalonfarmsvt.com/wp-admin/post.php where I used to be able to go, and that too is a white screen. When I tried logging into WordPress.COM and ORG, it would not take our usual login email and password, like we had never been users to begin with.

    I tried just now to register anew with WordPress which is how I can log in and use this forum. I may be able to salvage some content and images through BlueHost, but otherwise it seems like our first site never existed.
