    Hello,

    I use XAMPP. I create i directory SOME_NAME in htdosc; I create a database with that name; I unzip the wordpress directory there.

    I play with a theme; I mess something up.

    Is there some restoring to a previous point? I also tried to restore the them to its original using wordpres-database-reset with no result.

    The only way I have found is to uninstall XAMPP and reinstall it which take a long time.

    Please advise what to do.

    Link are most welcome.

    Thank you!

    No need to uninstall and reinstall XAMPP :)

    You can have as many "sites" in there as your hard drive has room for; that is the only limitation. And they don't have to all be WordPress. You can run any PHP/MySQL script, such as Joomla!, Prestashop, Drupal, eFront, Moodle, etc.

    As for restoring to a previous point, not sure on that as System Restore should not affect that installation.

    Just set up a new one in htdocs, SOME_NAME_2, etc. and start again. Go through the same motions as the first one, including setting up a new database.

    Thank you 2nineminer2.

    I know I can install may sites locally. I wanted to ask how to restore the default theme after I have played with it and start anew. When I delete the directory in which I fiddled with WordPress and recreates it, the settings I have made still have effect, i.e. I cannot start with the default theme. All this is done when I make a new database and WP directory with the same name as before.

    If you just want to restore one of the WordPress default themes (2013, 2012), then either download them from http://wordpress.org/themes/ or download a fresh WP ZIP, extract it, and copy the theme folder(s) from wp-content/themes.

    Is what you meant? :)

    No, I want to restore another theme, Mantra in this case. Unzipping the downloaded theme does not help; I am again where I have left or jumbled things ;)

    It was later then I saw Mantra have a very nice feature of backing up in the right column.

    Mantra is blessed as it has a Reset to Default button. What about the themes that do not have it?

    When I delete the directory in which I fiddled with WordPress and recreates it, the settings I have made still have effect, i.e.

    That's because the modifications you made to your theme are still stored in your database and they again amend the freshly installed theme. If you don't want this to happen, use a child theme for your modifications/customizations. Alternatively, you can locate and delete the stored data from your database.

    All this is done when I make a new database and WP directory with the same name as before.

    What's the problem if you use a different database name? Ideally, you should use a different name for a new database.

    When trying to view a post I get this error message.

    Fatal error: Class 'WpFunctionFacade' not found in /home/lindse/public_html/blog/wp-content/themes/prophoto4/classes/post.php on line 219

    @louloufulgham - you will need to deactivate the theme by using FTP to change the name on the theme's folder here:

    wp-content
          themes
             prophoto4 - CHANGE THIS NAME

    Then ask the ProPhoto people for help with the problem as commercial themes aren't supported on these forums.

    Next time, please start a new thread per:
