Hey BrandHub,

Not sure how useful this will be, but have you tried a "dev/build?flush=1"
Also try running your site in dev mode "?isDev=1" and see if any error messages come up.

Chances are the site cant access your sql database, your database needs to be rebuilt or you simply need to flush the cache.

Thank you for your help. I have figured out the database access problem, so it's all working good.
