Hello Warriors. I am not sure if this is the place for this question but I hope somebody will be able to help me.

I have about 7 websites hosted under one main account at hostgator. This weekend one of the sites stopped working. I mean when you type the domain at a browser (backpainremediesblog dot com) I get blank screen. the same happens if I try to access the admin area (/wp-admin); nothing. Just a blank white screen.

I used FTP to verify that the all WP files were stil there and I don't see any problem.

I try to restore an old copy with same results.

Then I erased the entire site and re installed wp again and everything worked fine until I imported my old mysql file backup. then everything went back to blank screen.

It appears that there is something on the database causing this issue.

Have you ever seen something like this?

I would appreciate any ideas you may have. This page is on ranked on Goggle page one for the KW and i hate lossing it

    First thing I would check your error_log file. If there is a blank screen, then chances are a PHP error would explain (or at least hint) at what's going on.

    Also, (if nothing turns up in the error_log) perhaps use PhpMyAdmin to run a ANALYZE/REPAIR operation on your database tables.

        As I mentioned before, I am now able to access the admin area but regardless the theme I use the results are always the same; blank screens.

        I noticed that when I switch themes and try to preview them before activating them I also get a blank preview screen. Usually you can see the theme before you activate it.

        could the problem be with some video setting on the database? I don't know much about this stuff to be sure.

    So you have an error in mysql. Try to use some online validators or softwares to repair this issue. probably because mod installation so you touched the database. Maybe there is one character even that is causing this issue. But for sure some mysql error. And for the last post: Did your hosting provider changed some hosting criterias or something?

      ecashbot, according to my provider, nothing was done on this account. I have another 6 sites on the same account and all of them work just fine

    try renaming your plugin folder and see if makes a difference.

    Have you disabled all your plugins?

    Try that (along with the default theme) and see if you get your site back. Then add each plugin until you find the culprit.

        Awesome. Was going to throw in a post to see how I could help but it sounds like you found the plugin that was causing the problems. In the future, remember to check your plugins first and if that is not it, move to the database and start contacting your host.

    Hallo Warriors!

    I would need your help too.

    Something is wrong with my site, I cannot check it via website hub spot grader, it shows no data, the page rank went from 2 to n/a. and it has been like that for approximately 2 months. Now the plugin for wp-comments stopped working, and the disabling it didn't help.
    Could you suggest what should I do? How to check what is wrong and then fix it?

    it is: successupermarket.com/blog

    I would greatly appreciate your help

    Thank you
