Deactivated ALL plugins and then reactivated them – Did I break the site? [closed]

Closed. This question is not about programming or software development. It is not currently accepting answers. This question does not appear to be about a specific programming problem, a software algorithm, or software tools primarily used by programmers. If you believe the question would be on-topic on another Stack Exchange site, you can leave a comment to explain where the question may be able to be answered. Closed 4 days ago. Improve this question I have a staging site that's being worked on by a developer that apparently caused overuse of resources (100% CPU usage) leading to slow loading times that even affected the main/live site. It got to the point where the developer was unable to load either the staging site or the main site at all - only getting error pages - and thus unable to make any changes to try and figure out the issue. Fortunately, I could still access both sites and was able to log in to the staging site WP backend somehow and deactivated ALL the plugins. After reactivating them however, the homepage is broken, only posts and other pages seem to be working, and the developer is claiming that "the site is back to where it was before I started working on it - some or most of my work is gone and I need to do them all over again". How is this possible? My understanding is that deactivating any plugin simply turns it off - but it shouldn't affect the configurations and certainly shouldn't affect any dev work? Am I wrong? When I load the staging site now on my "work browser" where I was able to log in to WP and deactivate the plugins in the first place, I can still load it just fine and to me it looks exactly like it did before all this. However, if I use Incognito or a different browser on the same computer, I see the broken homepage. I've purged the cache through Cloudflare as well as WP and the issue is still here. Any idea what's wrong? I have reactivated all plugins and expected the site to be back to normal but it isn't - not in some browsers. I've purged the cache through Cloudflare as well as WordPress.
