thx for checking. I matched the paths between hosting setup and FTP for serialbiz.com and the folder seems correct, it has the WP files in it. I recognized that the old path is being re-created with the default files nw 2nd time after i deleted the previous dir before.
No sure why the hosting panel shows the correct new path, while the system keeps re-creating the new path. Does it have something to do with SSL maybe ?
