My site recently updated to version 3.9.1 through automatic update. Only problem is once the update happened my site went crazy. So here is a list of everything that's happened so far and how I need help.
1. Site displays message across top of dashboard stating that the automatic update failed and I need to re-install. Any attempt to re-install leads to a blank page on my site stating the page is not found.
2. The most common cause of this is a plugin. I contacted my host and stated my issue. They said there was a plugin consuming enough resources it was maxing out the memory.
3. I disabled all plugins as recommended by various users in an attempt to single out the plugin. I disabled them through myphpadmin because WordPress dashboard would not allow me to disable them.
4. So I did what any frustrated WordPress user would do. I deleted the current WordPress installation and re-installed it on a clean drive. Re-uploaded the theme, content, and plugins (dumb move) and the error still persists. I also contacted the author of the WordPress theme we use and asked if there were any known issues. There are not any issues to their knowledge.
So now I am left with a couple questions:
1. How do I fix this?
2. This may a difficult question to answer, but I did notice in my SQL database that I have a number of tables or maybe installations. Forgive me - I don't know much about SQL. What I did see that was interesting is that say a certain table like say wp_options wasn't present. Instead I had wp_chgklt_options and another table labeled wp_tjaqje_options.
Is it okay to have tables listed like this or should I start back with a brand new database?
