    i am spanking new at this and i've been mucking about with files and trying out different themes, all the while adding posts and writing pages, and generally having just the best time watching the thing take shape --and now all front page links return 404 (except href to the net): Read more..., Categories, Archives, About, all return /filename/ not found on this server.

    my WP installation is in a directory called blog, which calls index.php as its home page. i am afraid i've either misplaced a file or trashed the index.php file; any direction i'd much appreciate.

    can you supply a link?

    This is a guess - in the Blog URI on the first Option page, you changed something in the address boxes there.
    If so, and you have phpmyadmin, you can revert the change:

    i don't have phpmyadmin, though i'm certain my site host does. can i not just reset through the admin panel?

    apparently not.

    the WP URI is http://www.lonbud.com
    the blog URI is now http://www.lonbud.com/wordpress

    i thought i might fix it with a clean install i had on a different directory --no luck.

    that may put me on the right track. i'll have to get database details for wp-config.php and see what happens then. should i consider wiping the whole installation and starting over? if so, is there a way to save Post and Page data?

    I'd not. I'd suggest backing up the database *and* keeping a copy of your WP files in any case. Try following podz' instructions; that's your best bet.

    i've followed the instructs on podz' suggestion; still have to get database info from the host, though this seems permalink related. i don't see a .htaccess file anywhere.
