    I'm new to WordPress and need to build a site for a client. I had WordPress and the WAMP server working, and was following along with a tutorial on how to build a site with Dreamweaver. I tried to "dynamically discover the files" and now when I try to access through WAMP I get the error message "Warning: require_once(C:\wamp\www\Website/wp-includes/load.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in C:\wamp\www\Website\wp-load.php on line 48" and "Fatal error: require_once(): Failed opening required 'C:\wamp\www\Website/wp-includes/load.php' (include_path='.;C:\php\pear') in C:\wamp\www\Website\wp-load.php on line 48". Does anyone have any experience with this? How did I break it and more importantly how do I fix it?

    What is in the C:\wamp\www\Website folder now? Your WP install or your DW site or a combination of the two? Sounds as though WP got overwritten by the "dynamic discover" process.

    If that was the case, see if there is still the wp-content folder in there as that is where any non-core WP items are located (themes, plugins, images, etc. ... files you add to the site) and the wp-config.php file.

    Create a new folder in C:\wamp\www for your WP install, extract a new copy of the ZIP into it and then replace the wp-content folder with the original (if you have it ... if not, you will have to start over) and the wp-config.php (again, if you have it ... otherwise edit the wp-config-sample.php with your database connection info and save it as wp-config.php).

    Once that is done, use phpMyAdmin to edit the wp_options table with the new SITE URL field (http://localhhost/name_of_wp_folder_in_www) and same info for the HOME field.
