[resolved] site disappeared after merging categories (3 posts)

    Aauuugh! I installed this plugin, attempted to merge several categories into one... and the WP installation screen appeared. I can no longer reach my site, and I'm not sure what to do next. Yes, I should have made a backup of my db before merging the categories, but I did not. I am a fool. Please help...

    That's very strange. Can you check the database with phpMyAdmin to see if the wp tables are still there?

    I should really clarify: After running the merge function, every attempt to reach the site displayed the WordPress Installation page. After an hour or so of panicky googling, I found a similar report (unrelated to your plugin) and tried the listed solution: log in to phpMyAdmin, run a check and then a repair on the db. That fixed my problem, and the site is live once again.
