The page was set up in 2011 and has been running fine until it was noticed today that the data was missing so the page is effectively blank.
When I try to connect to http://www.homestorentleeds.co.uk/perch, I get the error
Perch could not connect to the database
Please check that the access details specified in
The site is hosted on a shared server running PHP 5.4.
I've tried changing PHP to 5.6 and 7 but the page then starts to throw up errors.
Assuming I needed to upgrade Perch, I uploaded the new core files but then got an error: Fatal error: Class 'PerchRequest' not found in perch/inc/loader.php on line 34
I have reverted to the backup files of Perch so it was as it was when the blank pages were noticed earlier this evening.
Can you shed some light on what may have happened and what I need to do to rectify?
