after some tests, while changing only 3 tables from fresh install (config, configoption, configcategory), your site working too.
with default theme, it's ok.
and no more blank page with xmbluext theme, based on "XOOPS Brasil" theme, right ?

do you have other backups of the week to try to restore these 3 tables ?

by restoring only the table 'config' (from fresh install), your site functions again locally.

do you have a not so old backup of this table ? (before your website's crash), in order to make a comparison between them. (there are too many changes between fresh XOOPS install and your own config table)

ok, try : http://hotdogblog.com
after comparison (between fresh install and yours), i made some changes in your config table.
for unknown reason (to me), `conf_modid` was set to 1 (but it was set to 0 on fresh install).
after some tests on my local install, i change this on your db, and all seems works correctly.
can you confirm this ?

i must also recommend to you, to install protector module, and make your own sql backup (daily) to avoid problems in the future.

for test purpose, i created an admin account for myself.
you can remove it as soon as you want

i make 'blogstyle', as default theme for your website.
for your information, xmt and xmbluext are not fully working.
i removed them from theme block switcher (in case of display of this block)

THANK YOU!!!!

You are amazing. What is the 'conf_modid' for? I wonder how this would get changed on it's own? The xmbluext in there is the original file that I uploaded, but it never worked without modification. I renamed the actual one I used to "xmbluext_current" or something like that while trying to get the site back up. Do you think the xmbluext theme could be part of the problem?

What is a paypal address for you? I want to send you a thank you contribution!

in "config" table, the 'modid key' seems to be linked to 'mid key' in "modules" table.
for example, on your website, liaise has the mid #104
in "config" table, the "mail_charset" is linked to this mid.

I have no idea about the mysterious change of this value (0->1) in your database.
I can't tell you more infos about that, because my "xoops level" is not high (my English grammar too

I don't think that playing with themes can create these problems.
If you really want to change your theme (I like blogstyle), I think you'll do better to create a new one, based on 'morphogenesis' skeleton. (see Kris_fr works/adaptations about this).

I cannot decently accept any contribution.
I never did that before, but Thank You for your offer.

HotDog,

You might want to go to your site, (with your browser) and do a file save as ... the whole webpage onto your desktop (or other place where you can find the file) use the filename indexbac.html --

Then upload to your directory both the file indexbac.html and the folder where the graphics will be held.

Then IF you have another breakdown, this allows you to get back online in a heart beat.. while you do what is needed to get the index.php back in business.

you rename the indexbac.html to index.html and your customers don't get that dreaded white page when they access your site. (you also get a chance to see what parts of the site are still working ok, and lets you know whether it is the server or the program that is down.

After uploading you can access it by http://hotdogblog.com/indexbac.html

Just a BlueStocking extra.
