Support » Fixing WordPress » Posts disappeared (db problem?)

  • I’m having a very strange problem. I’m using WP for quite a while now and I have never seen this.

    All of a sudden all my posts disappeared, including the ‘pages’. The thing is that I can still see the posts in the database (using phpMyAdmin).

    The “Admin > Manage posts” shows no posts. In “Admin > Pages” I can see the names of the pages, but the content doesn’t exist.

    Please help…

  • Some more information: apparently I can still edit the posts. If I go in my Dashboard en click on some of the recent posts, they still appear. So the posts still exist and WP finds them…

    On the other hand, if I go to Manage Posts, WP says “No posts found.”

    This is very frustrating. What can cause this and how can I solve it?

    Some time before the problem started, I installed Instiki ( on my webspace. The server admin had to make some adjustmenst to get this running.

    I think the problems started after those adjustments. The thing is: I asked the server admin to revert. He did, but the problem didn’t go away.

    Does someone recognize this problem?

    Absolutely no-one? 🙁

    Ik had nooit gedacht dat dingen zoals RSS in Vlaanderen zouden doorbreken. Stilaan lijkt het echter toch door te dringen tot bedrijven dat RSS (of feeds in het algemeen) zeer handig zijn.”

    Also, with Instiki – keep a backup !
    It’s a great wiki, but somehow it crashed on me and wiped out every file. All the data was gone.

    OK. It works now. Thanks. 🙂

    Thanks for the tip. I’ll keep it in mind! 🙂

    Thanks it helped me too – but what about for all the viewers to the site – cant ask them to always clear/clean… is there some permanent fix to this problem?

    same thing happened to me after i installed lussumo vanilla forums. anything i can do to prevent this? why would this happen?
