Unexpected 404 Page Not Found errors Drupal 6
I was in the process of locking some old user accounts and had just logged into the database via phpMyAdmin when the site started showing 404 Errors everywhere. The menus were not populating but there were signs that the site was still able to connect to the database. I remember I hit the users table but didn't (shouldn't have) made any changes when things went awry. I'm pretty certain nothing changed on the backend but that should be considered.
FYI, I figured this out. Well, kind of. Via this page I had to run update.php. The problem was potentially related to the menu system or, prior to the freeze, I was trying to lock accounts. Operating on too many accounts at once leads to a WSOD. Possible memory error?
