[resolved] NEED HELP DOWNLOADING file from CORRUPTED wp-content (5 posts)

    Oh my goodness, I just spent half an hour writing my issue and it did not go through, so here is the simplified version. I have a folder in wp-content that is very important. The site it is on is messed up beyond repair, and the file has some code that I paid for. The provider can now only delete everyhing as the password will not reset, and I will lose EVERYTHING. I have tried downloading the file by right clicking on it, but it only downloaded the text that gave the list of directories I can go to. How can I download this??????????? I dont have any block on my files, but I cannot get past wp-content, it shows the file, but it wont let me download it. I can no longer get in at all, but I do not want to lose this. Is there a way to download the files before it is deleted forever?

    How are you accessing your account...ftp, Cpanel, other?

    Never mind, they found it. Someone also renamed the file names and the folders that I needed. Weird stuff. The thing I was trying to save in some way was my php files. I could see some of them when I went to my site and browsed my foldrs, but I could not download them. That was my main concern - donwloading my php files, I dont know if its possible, but I thought I would give it a shot.

    That's not possible, since it's a file that each browser has to execute. But like Figaro says, you can get the files using FTP.
    (Imagine if you could just download the wp-config file!)

    I just thought I could because it showed it in the file directory, so I thought it was like downloading a html file. Cool, thank you for letting me know the difference
