Am trying to get some help on this as my posts using a previous forum account kept getting closed immediately.
I upgraded a month ago to 2.8.6 for my site at http://www.hundredmountain.com and was posting fine to it. I opened up both sites two days ago to find that my dashboard is now a mess, looking like a bulleted list running down the page (I can still navigate in it but everything is all text now). And all my plug-ins are turned off or gone with the message 'You do not appear to have any plugins available at this time.' My plugin also say they cannot display as they "don't have valid header.' The site on the web itself looks fine.
The only change I made - and it was a couple weeks ago - was to add to the wp-config.php this following, related to the PowerPress podcast plug-in: define('POWERPRESS_PLAY_IMAGE', 'http://server.com/full/path/to/image.jpg');
On my plug ins page, the folowing warnings are displaying:
Warning: gzinflate() [function.gzinflate]: data error in /home/content/d/o/u/douglaseye/html/westvirginiaville/wp-includes/http.php on line 1788
Warning: gzuncompress() [function.gzuncompress]: data error in /home/content/d/o/u/douglaseye/html/westvirginiaville/wp-includes/http.php on line 1793
What happened and how do I get back to the dashboard I was using? I can't uninstall the Powerpres plug-in because it looks like all my plug-ins are gone. I used GoDaddy so should I go there and simply try and reinstall WordPress over the existing 2.8.6 installation? NOTE: The dashboard of another subdomain of my site using WordPress 2.6.2 works fine.
