I am being treated for lung and brain cancer with imutheropy and radiation. I was unprepared for what a muddle the radiation would make of my brain but here I am in the thick of it trying to muddle on.
I am in the process of trying to delete and reinstall a WP site. I thought the easiest way to do it would be take advantage of the Softaculous scripts in my C-Panel.
I used the delete function and apparaently checked the remove directry remove database, remove database user. I then tried to rebuild the site using the settings in my wp-config file.
The Softaculous script did the uploads but generated an error saying there was already a site with this url (this is what I thought checking the three checkboxes would take care of.
I don't know where this url is stored. It is not in the site directry.
So I paniced and tried to do a full restore using the server's backup. The backup diirectry didn't list the site even going three weeks back. I suspect this is because I deleted the database user name and there is nothing to attach the stored data to.
I am besieged with headaches from every direction; files with duplicate names to forgotten passwords.
I would pull my hair out if it hadn't fallen out already!
