Tonight I was using MarsEdit to create a new post. It was having trouble uploading a jpg, so I decided to try to upload it myself using Transmit FTP. However, when I logged into my DreamHost account through Transmit, the blog in question didn’t appear in my list of directories. All my other DH-hosted sites were there, per usual.
I thought that strange, so I checked in here on the user panel. Sure enough, the site in question didn’t offer the option of web FTP on my main domain page. So I chose to edit under the “wed hosting” category, and the only change I made (full disclosure: I had no idea what I was doing, besides guessing) was to select “fully host.”
After that, I went back to Transmit and hit refresh, and sure enough a directory showed up for the site in question. Having felt I did something right, I was about to proceed, but then I checked in with MarsEdit, and it suddenly accepted the upload. So I went back to editing there, and published from the that application.
I double-checked the site in a web browswer, and it looked fine.
However, now when I try to access it, I get on the images folder I created through Transmit. All the blog software, and the associated posts, are missing.
I tried re-installing WordPress on this site, to no avail.
Can anyone tell what’s going on? Have I lost my blog? It’s new, and hadn’t been backed up yet.
