Weird behavior, endless loop, no updates

    Hello,

    I'm very sorry for the title, I wasn't sure how to describe this problem.

    Since a few days, Wordpress behaves strangely.

    Strange behavior:

    • when I delete a comment in the Dashboard, it pops up again soon as if it has never been deleted
    • when I deactivate a plugin, I get the "plugin deactivated" message, but in the list it's still shown as activa
    • if I bulk deactivate plugins, they're still shown as activated
    • I updated my stylesheet and while the updates are clearly seen in the Dashboard editor and in my FTP folder, the actual website won't trigger the update. It still shows an old version of the CSS sheet.

    What I tried already:


    • I've deactivated all plugins and used a standard Wordpress theme.
    • I also disabled leverage browser caching and my caching plugin, emptied my own browser's cache, used CTRL + F5.....
    • The issues remained.
    • I contacted my hosting service, no error logs or hacking attempts.

    So, I assume it has to be something within the WP core files?
    I'm not a developer and I don't know much about codes.

    The only two files I remember changing recently are my htacces file and my wp-config file.

    htaccess: Please let me know how I can show you my code as I'm not allowed to post code (it says it's spam) and also no link to pastebin. Thank you.



    I just removed the following from it: *will insert code if I know how to*



    wp-config: *would love to show you but don't know how*

    Could you be so kind and have a look at these two files and tell me if those could be causing the mentioned issues?


    If not, any other idea what could be causing these strange issues?

    I'd be so thankful if anybody could give me advice.
    I'm not a developer and know only a little bit about WP codex, so I'm truly at a loss here.
    I spent the last 4 days trying to figure it out on my own.

    1. Do you have https (SSL Certificate) on your hosting...? If so, then login using https and check if it works. Cache will not work with SSL
    2. Check your view:source. Check for error generated (if any) they are usually marked in red...
    3. Scan your website using a Wordpress Plugin Scanner.. and check for some virus....
    4. Also check with a proxy server....Any network cache will not show there
    5. Disable .htaccess completely by rename it....Set Wordpress permalink to plain

    1. I think SSL is possible, but what do you mean with log in? Wordpress? Cpanel?
    2. I have had my hosting service check if there were any hacks. They scanned everything. Looks ok.
    3. Yet another plugin? Ok, will do. Thank you.
    4. How can I check with a proxy server?
    5. Ok, I can rename my htaccess file, but will the website still work then? Also I'm not sure what you mean by set permalink to plain.

    The scane showed me the following:
    [​IMG]
    This is weird because I'm running 4.7.4 ..............

    Proxy doesn't help as I cannot see if the old or the new CSS stylesheet is being loaded.

    Thank you so much.
    I'm sorry, I'm not a developer, so I usually need a bit of extra explanation. Sorry.
