  • Just a quick update –

    I logged into the PhPMyAdmin and exported the database of the above mentioned blog which is currently not working. Then I made a new installation of WordPress and imported this blog. I made sure I updated the blog addresses in the database to match the new address.

    When I visit the new blog e.g. I still get a white screen. However, small progress: when i add the wp-admin I am able to login and access all my content intact.

    I noticed that this time round the .htaccess created by wordpress was blank, so I added the following:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /the_blog/
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ – [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /the_blog/index.php [L]

    # END WordPress

    However, no difference. I am happy to see my posts/comments again! Now just to get it up and running. Any help appreciated!


    Ah… one last very significant update.

    When I typed in this URL:

    I was able to login to the blog and see all my data and everything perfectly. However, still get a blank screen and the wp-admin still does a URL redirect.

    I don’t know much about these things, but based on what little I have learnt in the past 6 hours, it seems to be a .htaccess problem? Is that correct?

    For now, Im just happy I can login to my blog again!

    And… the blog is back!

    I still don’t know what the problem was, but hopefully this might give you a clue:

    – Once I was able to login and access the back-end, I had a look at the themes. As I mentioned I had deleted the new one via FTP thinking it might solve the problem. WordPress was letting me know that it had resorted to using the default theme. However, the front-end was a white screen.

    So I reinstalled the new theme once again and lo-and-behold everything was up and running once again. I cannot define the exact nature of the problem but I hope if anyone who is an expert reads this, they might get a sense of what happened. I’ve left a public trail of what I did just in case anyone has the same problem.

    And finally, I made 4 separate wordpress installs in different directories of my hosting account yesterday and was doing a lot of work on them, but I cannot think why this would affect my blog which had been running for a year.

    Kind regards,
