Support » Fixing WordPress » My blog has disappeared(?!)

  • Very strange. For no apparent reason, my blog has just vanished:

    Nothing comes out at all. But it is not a server problem – all pages on the site that are outside WordPress can be accessed. The database is all in order.

    I put on PHP full error_reporting and nothing is reported. If I add some html/text to index.php, it is only displayed if the line requiring blogheader.php is commented out.

    I had not been making any great changes to the site at the time. I had just signed it up to the TLB Ecosystem and to a Flickr related webring and I was adding some html to the sidebar. I removed the html that I had added, to see if that was affecting the blog’s display.

    Can anyone suggest anything?

  • Restore the site content from the most recent backup? I’m assuming you make backups of the site/files before making changes 😉

    If you run the server yourself, check your httpd.conf or vhost settings… Just from a quick poke at your site it doesn’t appear to be finding any of the usual directories in WP either such as wp-admin/ and others.

    Also, check your apache logs, and mysql logs, they may provide more detail.

    Good luck!

    Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, I do not have access to those files. WP is installed to so the standard WP folders and files take that as a prefix. You are right, none of the standard WP files are working. Nothing returned at all.

    I wasn’t actually making real changes. But yes… I’ve got the whole thing on my hard drive :o)

    Edit the index.php in the /blog directory to require ./wp-blog-header.php and not ./blog/wp-blog-header.php and the index.php at the root of your site to require ./blog/wp-blog-header.php

    Done. No output from either.

    Halfelf Minion 🚀 is returning “Fatal error: out of dynamic memory in yy_create_buffer() in Unknown on line 0”. This is a hosting issue.

    Ah, this was indeed a hosting issue. They experienced some mysterious glitch in their server that evaded detection and are now investigating.

    We are now back online.
    Thank you for helping me on this one.




    Running on OSX, we are experiencing a VERY high number of these messages:

    “Fatal error: out of dynamic memory in yy_create_buffer() in /Library/WebServer/Documents/index.php on line 4”

    I have experimented with changing the amount of memory scripts can use in the php.ini file, but changing the default 8M to 12M, 16M, or 32M hasn’t had any effect.

    We have absolutely standard index.php files in all the blogs, so line four is:


    I’m beginning to get lots of user complaints. Running an apachectl graceful will temporarily restore service.

    Any suggestions?
