  • Resolved Avexvision


    After an automatic upgrade to 3.4.1, my site is not showing up anymore.

    As you can see, the WP files are still there, but the page is not loading correctly. I checked the htaccess file and everything seems to be ok. Please let me know if there is a solution to this problem. Thanks in advance.

  • I am afraid you erased all your posts/ contents. I find only your WordPress installation. Do you have a lot of content/ posts? How old is your site? Do you have back ups of database, etc.?

    I barely have any post/contents so I am not worried about that. My site is about 1 year old, I’ve had it running for a while but I rarely make changes to it.

    You think I should do a restore from a backup in my cPanel?

    No, the database was not erased. You can still access pages like, etc.

    Avexvision, I would try switching your theme to twentytwelve and see what happens. This looks like a problem with the exquisite-child theme maybe. You can still log in at

    Yes, making a backup will help you retain any contents. Now tell me if you can login to your dashboard?

    A new theme? I too will like to get it. Where can I look for it?

    I’ve managed to log in and changed the theme, but still no dice…the homepage is still not showing up.

    But if you go to a page like
    You can see that I’ve changed the theme already

    Hmmm, very strange. Have you tried visiting the permalinks page? You don’t need to make any changes to the settings.

    Yes. Can you make a back up of your site and reinstall WordPress (excepting wp-content)

    I went inside Cpanel and reverted my WP back to 3.2.1 but the same problem still occurs.

    I guess when I get home I’ll first try to reinstall WordPress and then restore my entire cpanel from backup if that doesn’t work.

    I think that should solve the problem.

    Ok so I talked to hostgator live chat and they told me that they had to add a directory index into the .htaccess file. Now my sites are working again! Here is the .htaccess if anyone is curious. Thanks a lot for the help guys!

    DirectoryIndex index.php index.html
    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    # END WordPress

    Glad to note that you could solve the problem.
