    either you or your server have blocked access to my country i.e. Pakistan and I am unable to access any part of your domain!

    just completely delete everything including your database tables and then send me your wp-config file at [email address removed]

    Do not paste it here as it contains your username and password. Just send me the complete file as email attachment on the address given above.

    You need not to worry about sending it to me because I do it as a hobby and have no concerns with your website or blog. I will correct your wp-config file and will give it back to you so that you can use it.

    You you feel any problems in this then let me know, we will find some other solution.

    Dont you have backup for database as well?

    If not then dont do that...

    In this situation just upload the backup where it was previously and then let me know.

    You just upload the backup in the same position as from where it was made. Like if your wp installation was in /wordpress folder then place it there and then let me check.

    I think there is a big difference in our timezones. Its bedtime with me so you just upload it and send me a msg. I will see the problem and will let you know.
    You need not to worry, it is just a simple fix.

    see you soon!

    hi Fahad thanks with the help so if I get the login working do you have any idea why my theme formatting is broken?

    Either something wrong with wp-config or with .htaccess and nothing else. You either deleted them or moved them somewhere else. Plugins often do this with .htaccess file.

    Thank you so mcuh for your help?

    Ok so the backup wordpress file is back where it originally was

    Now originally I could go to http://www.alexdorman.co.uk/ and it would load my site

    now I have to go to http://alexdorman.co.uk/wordpress/ which is the address that it would go to when I clicked on my home button on the blog and also the site is completely broken.

    I cant login either I used to login through this address http://alexdorman.co.uk/wordpress/wp-login.php which is now broken to.

    Thanks you for your help and hope you have slept well.

    Alex

    Hi razanasir,

    You really should start your own thread instead of hijacking this one.

    It sounds like a file permissions problem. Are you using Windows hosting by any chance?
