    Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the Twenty Twelve theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    – re-uploading all files & folders – except the wp-content folder – from a fresh download of your current version of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.

    – checking your database to see if the data is still intact?

    the second to the last step is to do a system backup right?

    i mean system restore

    Not sure what you mean by a system backup but what I meant was that you upload a completely fresh copy of all WordPress core files just in case one or more files has been corrupted.

    ok! let me try it and get back to you sir

    i have done all steps but it didn’t work. Please any other suggestion?

    Do you have a recent database backup? Do your hosts?

    my host only has a 2days backup and they do not have like the yesterday backup and on my side i did not create any backup… (i know it’s wrong not to get backup of your stuffs)
