Site down - did I break it with FTP copying?


#1

HI there.

OK, I’m not too sure what’s happening but my site is down again. Longer than usual and it isn’t displaying the “waiting for…”. It just says “DONE” and endless loading of nothing.

I was trying to copy the wpcontent folder via FTP and now I don’t know what on earth has happened. I’m hoping it hasn’t somehow started to “cut” instead of copy. The FTP client says “copy” as far as I know.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Which way did you “copy” the folder? From the server (download), or To the server (upload)? Was it just the wp-content folder?

What’s the URL for your site?

What errors do you see when you open your site?

I’ll suggest you to check the the log files for errors at /home/username/logs.

Pay attention on file permissions as well.
