My blog’s been unavailable for most of the day due to a problem. The blog is hosted on MediaTemple. I was playing with their ‘1 click’ install of Drupal and because it wouldn’t install I tried changing various database passwords (I know poke and hope) to complete the process, updating my password in the wp-config.php files on this site and on my Gig blog. The site was working fine last night, but this morning, this site was returning a blank page with no html content.
I tried a number of updates various sites recommended but nothing worked. Eventually I tried disabling lines in wp-config starting with
changing it to false.
After this the blog started to work. After deleting the cache files, uninstalling the WP Super Cache and reinstalling them, everything appears to be working again. Hopefully it won’t fall over again tonight.
Consider this post a test to see if everything is now working.
Edit: The Tantan Flickr plugin was also broken and could not be started, even if reinstalled. I found a solution on flickr
There is a configuration file that runs as part of the activation process.
You need to change the ‘add_action to register_activation_hook’ function:.
