Support » Fixing WordPress » Site was running, now it's gone

  • My site:

    I had my site up and running, then added one piece of code to theme functions php. Once I hit save, my whole site and access to my control panel dashboard vanished. I went to my files and restored a backup. I can now access my dashboard again. Problem though is that no one can see my site anymore. If I preview it, I get the following on a white page:

    Sample “Hello, World” Application

    This is the home page for the HelloWorld Web application.

    To prove that they work, you can execute either of the following links:

    To a JSP page.
    To a servlet.

    Once again, I am the only one that can see this. Others just see a white page. If I click “To a JSP page” or “To a servlet” it takes me to …a page I never created. It then “Whoops! Whatever you are looking for cannot be found.” The whole site is there, but something is seriously jacked up. Can anyone please, please help me get things up and running again?

    Thank you,

    Looks like you’ve fixed it as your site works for me. That hello link is sent me to your site’s 404 page which for me is what should happen.

    Do you still have that problem from the backend?

    If so try the easy things first such as clearing your cache and cookies on your browser, re-login and try again.

    If that doesn’t change anything then try the usual troubleshooting steps.

    – Deactivate all of your plugins.

    – Switch to the Twenty Eleven theme.

    – Clear your cache and cookies again.

    And try the backend one more time. If it works then re-activate your plugins one by one and test until the problem comes back. Switch your theme back last, that may help you identify where the problem is.
