After countless hours of work and troubleshooting I finally got Violaman.com back online.

No exact idea of what was causing the whitescreen

After completely reinstalling WordPress, doing a complete restore, turning off all plug-ins the site was still not working. The hosts experts did everything they could and gave up after the first day. I continued to experiment and got it to work by changing themes. When a change of theme solved the problem I simply reinstalled the old theme, activated it then activated every plug-in one by one and redid all settings.

So far so good, and changed the admin password to a much more secure one. Let's hope it never happens again.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

It's good to see you are back online again.  Now it's time to go and crash since I'm sure you were up most of the night.

The only word for that fix is "inspired."  No wonder the techs didn't think of it. 

 

Great to see the site up and running again.

Glad you figured out the solution, if not the source of the problem, Pierre.
Changing your password implies you think there's still a chance you were hacked. You might want to do the same on all your other sites, as well.

Darn it, HC.  Now you owe me a new keyboard.  I guess I should know better than to try and drink anything while reading your posts.

My wife's cousin, who used to handle internet security for a large, local legal firm mentioned that there's the following Java exploit on the FaceBook links to Violaman.com.

Looks like we were down again for a few hours, yesterday.
I don't see any ill-effects, though. I'm not sure if this was just "leftovers" from the original issue, something new, or just some maintenance that Violaman was doing to the site.

So, er ... carry on.dunno
