Hi. My site is such a hacked mess that cleaning it up seems like a gargantuan task. What I want to do now is to delete everything and to start over fresh from a backup. I have several backups that I believe are complete and I’m wondering how to proceed.
Do I uninstall WP and then delete everything?
and then reinstall wp to the same subdomain
and then upload my backup?
Note: I want to be sure that my site is clean and it seems to me that deleting everything, all folders and files, and then restoring from a clean backup is the way to go.
I have other concerns too: What if I didn’t get every file when I did my backups? - so my questions is: are there some certain files that I should back up again before attempting to delete everything?
And what folder names should I take note off so I can recreate them when installing the new WP?
Thanks and hey, I’m sorry if this post rambles; I’m frustrated and exhausted after spending many long days & nights trying to clean up this mess.
