How to change blog from directory to root and how to upload? (4 posts)

    I actually have two issues:

    First.... I was not able to make a backup copy of the
    blog before the service was canceled... had to download
    all files individually with ftp.

    Second... the blog was hosted at domain.com/weblog

    On new site, the blog will be installed in root directory so, will be domain.com

    What do I need to change so that the blog will show up in it's new home?

    How do I upload and set up the blog with all of these individual files?

    I'm most appreciative of your help... I'm just about bald right now (pulling my hair out in frustration :) Thanks

    Do you have backup of your database as that is where all your data is saved not in files.

    If you do not have backup database then I am sorry to say that you will not have content on your website. You can contact the host see if they can give a backup of database.
