I have wordpress 3.8 wiith postgres db, and I was trying different themes until I got totally white blank screen, and I can not get back to the admin panel, I have read many articles in the internet and all they are advising to remove all the new themes and remove the default ones (2012,2013, and 2014) and the wordpress will automatically will fall back to the default theme however that is not the case with me, now I have only the default themes, I have even found an article advising to change the the following entries in the DB:
update wp_options set option_value = 'default' where option_name = 'template';
update wp_options set option_value = 'default' where option_name = 'stylesheet';

Open in new window

but I still have blank screen, so I changed them back to the original value, and advice please?
