[resolved] HELP: Need to put files back in path of server (4 posts)

    I am developing my Theme locally (WAMP), and I changed my site address and blog address in the General Settings of the Admin from: http://localhost/wordpress to: http://localhost and of course the web server can no longer find the site.

    So I moved all the directories (themes, wp-admin, wp-content, wp-includes and all other files in the wordpress directory up a directory level, right under www, and it still can't find the site, so I obviously can't get back into the admin module to change it back.

    Urgh!

    Can anyone help?

    Hello? Anyone?

    I just continue to make a mess of this.

    Now it's telling me: Unable to open WampServer's config file, please change path in index.php file

    Put the files back where they were originally and then see:

    I moved my theme up to the live site, and got it working there, but I still haven't managed to sort all this out locally. I had hoped to do all my future updates/fixes locally and then ftp the files up once completed. What a mess I've made.

    I've put my files back where they were originally. Unfortunately, when I dumped all my WordPress directories and files into the directory one up (the www directory) I didn't note the files already in www. It still doesn't work, so I suspect when I moved everything back, I might have moved some of the original files located in www directory down one level into the WordPress directory.

    Do you, by any chance, know what files must be located in the www directory, not including the WordPress directory which houses the Themes, wp-content, etc)?

    Thanks for your help.
