I can see some of my old content however when I try to go to the Wordpress Admin login page I see the White screen of death.

When I go to where I'd expect the WP Admin area to be:

I get redirected to a localhost url:

It looks like somewhere you've configured an address for the site as localhost. Maybe in wp-config.php? Maybe in one of the db tables? I'd start by trying to resolve that.

Here are some different steps for fixing the site url:

define( 'WP_SITEURL', '' );

Also try updating:
define('DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', '');

If the problem persists, look at your server logs.

Dear Hielo,
Given that other things might be broken if I keep my restored site in a sub-directory perhaps it is safer to move it back to my root directory?

Dear Hielo,

Neither of these appear in my wp-config.php file.  I assume this is because I am using an older version of WordPress.

There is an ABSPATH variable at the bottom of the config file.

If I look in the version.php file in the includes directory it tells me that I'm running Worpress 3.0.

Wordpress is current at 4.2.2.  You might start by bringing your code base up-to-date then installing your required plug-ins.
