Yes I have been reading the tuts at Drupal although I got the most fron the “Learn by the Drop” videos. Yes I do know what a web app is. And yes I do have the original admin usr/login info but who knows if its current.
Here’s my problem:
After reading and watching tuts I know understand how Drupal “works”. I expected a “front end” like Dreamweaver and now know I do updates from website login.
That being said however when I login and try to access mysite.com/admin I get an error meg not the admin page. Consequently I can’t make changes to site. There is an “edit” selection on the “blocks” but no more.
Additionally after reading the msg logs it appears the previous developer was seeking to remove Drupal 7
from support msgs.
Here are the directories that need to be deleted:
Here is the error message I get when I try to delete the file from my ssh connection:
[matar]$ rm -r ~/devincoleman.com/drupal-7.2
The problem was the permissions:
matar:~# ls -al
dr-xr-xr-x 3 darobinson pg4555936 4096 2011-05-30 18:31 .
If there’s anything else I can help you with, please
let me know.
this is confusing as it appears that Drupal 7 was removed however I did not think this could be done w/o also removing the website.
I KNOW I APPEAR TO BE A F*&KING IDIOT w/ these questions but I’m not doing my “homework”. I walked into this w/ zero knowledge of DH & Drupal but that’s just a learning hurdle. What is really messing me up is the website condition left by the previous developer. I’ve actually learned quite a bit about Drupal and feel confident I could make changes/pdates needed but I can’t get to the “expected” admin panels & etc. and I really don’t understand how 1-click drupal install works w/ dreamhost.
Again thank you for taking the time to read and suggest solutions. Right now I’m waiting for DH support to assist me in getting devincoleman.com on-line again. Then I will push forward as I can.
no I did not attempt to use the same database for my subdomain.
When this mess is finally cleaned up
