  • Exactly the same problem here! Any hint??

    Try removing .htaccess file and replacing the index.php file of theme and installation.

    Incompatible plugin perhaps? Try renaming your wp-content/plugins folder temporarily to see if it brings your site back up.

    Thanks ulgaming I tried it but still gone.
    Page returns totally blank with a totally blank source code…

    i have the same error, i just autoupdate and the site came down

    when i remove the wp-config.php the site request a config, but when you setup it go down again

    Sounds simple… but did you try ftp’ing and renaming your plugins folder to something else, and seeing if the website comes up then?

    K renaming the plugins folder wont do it either..

    removing httacces doesn’t work
    renaming plugins folder doesn’t work

    more ideas?

    Try renaming your current theme folder then (ie wp-content/themes/yourtheme/). WordPress should try and switch to the default theme instead.

    Otherwise, do a manual upgrade and see if that sorts it out.

    i upgrade manualy but get the same error, remove the htacces neither, rename theme folder dont change nothing

    FTP into the current theme…

    Then physically open up one of the theme files like index.php or header.php and see if the code is still in there.

    Somehow my theme files got wiped a few versions ago – that’s what your site looks like now.

    No results for me either. Index.php checked and replaced, theme checked and replaced, .htaccess checked, replaced and erased…. site still gone missing.

    One interesting thing about this: If you type an incorrect url (to a folder or file that doesn’t exist) it doesn’t give any kind of error back. I don’t know if it is normal but it sounds to me like the problem could be somewhere else… I’m not an expert anyway, just pointing it out.

    Thanks to all for your help!

    Is there anyway to roll the site back? to the 2.8.6 (my version before update)?

    I deleted everything absolutely in my server via FTP and I uploaded a backup I did one week ago… I was lucky to do it because I was testing some things…
    when I uploaded everything, the admin page worked but the blog was still blank, I had to change my theme to another and then it worked…

    good luck!
