My wordpress blog crashed.

Post by Chroelle » Mon Sep 03, 2012 19:22

Well it seems I made have a small error... I accidentally pressed refresh on the tab that was running an update on the theme of my wordpress blog.

I am home with the youngest who is ill, and as such my attention is divided, so does anyone know the short way to reestablishing the site. I have a backup of the database emailed to myself every week, so I shouldn't loose anything. But I cannot seem to figure out how to do it, as I keep getting interrupted by an ill daughter who wants to sit on my lap and that leads to hammering away at the keyboard etc.

I need to think straight but if anyone know a shortcut to that please let me know.
I would of course like my blog to be up and running especially since I have customers looking at it now. :)

The database probably doesn't help you much because it just has the data, not the settings.

Strange that it totally crashed. What theme was it?

Quick google search would suggest that you only need to delete the theme from your blog's wp-content/themes -directory and then WP should default to the normal theme.

That was what I found as well, but it seems that only makes my website go well blank. www.paed-it.dk You can see that nothing is happening there (unless of course I have found a solution in the meantime). Before it gave me an error message, but now it gets me nothing...

Theme was called Evolve.
