Support » Fixing WordPress » wp-config file hacked but after cleanup one page still has issues

  • My website had the wp-config file hacked last week which resulted in a blank white screen and the message: DATABASE NOT FOUND (except for the home page strangely enough). I couldn’t get to my admin dashboard nor any of the interior pages.

    I found the database problem in the wp-config file which had been altered to point to some other database which I had never heard of and my database info was commented out. I restored the wp-config file from a backup and changed the salt keys.

    I also reinstalled WP to make sure the core files were clean ones. I examined all the plugins and updated any that needed it. Installed Brute Protect.

    I have looked everywhere in the code for something that is targeting the page where my “About” link goes but can’t find what is preventing my content to display. has scanned my site for malware and it came up clean so they have cleared it. They suggested I come to this forum to find a solution for my missing page content. Hopefully someone could point me in the right direction to restore my page? — the “about” page has the problem.

    Thank you in advance!

  • on inspector, it says you have a js error cs_menu_sticky is not defined. not sure if that’s the reason but broken js does make the rest of the page no appear
