A week ago, in a botched strategy to upgrade to WP 2.5, I deleted my “installs” directory (upgrading from 2.2.3 wasn’t an option with one-click, so I chose to do a clean install to a new directory). Long story short, it didn’t work. And without an installs directory, I had no blog, no Gallery2 page, etc.
So at the advice of a helpful forum member, I used the .snapshot directory in Webftp, which seems to have restored my old ‘installs’ directory to the account root. But unfortunately I’m still unable to access any of my web-based stuff that lived in that directory. No Gallery2 love, no blog, I can’t even log into my account directory using Filezilla anymore. The confirmation window at the end of the .snapshot copying process said “All the selected directories and files have been processed,” and I didn’t see any error dialogs. So I’m assuming everything copied okay. But what do I know? Is it possible I need to re-point those things to the proper directory now that it exists again? Can anyone explain what I’ve done wrong in restoring my “installs” directory? Or suggest a better way for this newbie to fix things? Many thanks in advance.
