    Hi,
    So what did you do to bring it back? I had it before too and in my case it was because of a one "bad" plugin. So the best solution was - disable all of them and then bring them back, one after another till you find which one causes the problem. Another reason could be WP database issues. This guy has the right solution to it:

    This happens with running autoupdate on plugins. Google the error message for the fix. Last time I had to delete some .manifest or something like that in the root folder.

    How can you disable the plugin if the dashboard is blank?

    you would have to disable it externally by using FTP or through C panel

    Keep in mind everything you do in the admin panel essentially just results in a sql query being run on your database.

    Code:
    UPDATE wp_options SET option_value = '' WHERE option_name = 'active_plugins';
    should disable all plguins, then you can log back into the admin panel (if it actually is a problem with a plugin) and re-enable them one by one.

    Always backup your db :D

    For Wordpress FTP is what I use nearly 99.99% of the time. Even for posting I use Windows Live Writer (much recommend it).

    I don't do much SEO on it because its a personal blog so not much in terms of plugins. For my autoblogs I use WP Robot and it rocks.

    i am. it must have been that i guess. it just came back on its one. i was a bite scared i lost everything. i did a search while the site was down (about 15 min) and saw that some people had the same problem and it never resolved. they lost all their content. I'm gonnna be backing up my data more often now.
