My host, Namesco, took down my site because of an erroneous directory that appeared. Not helpful at all. Those issues are sorted, but WP is posing a problem. I have a backup from December 2010, so I though I could just reinstall WP from their Softaculous 1 click installer. Not so. Namesco's support team have been attentive and kindly reinstalled WP on my behalf, into a different directory. This gave a basic installation of WP. To make my hair greyer, the server kept timing out when I attempted to import the backup into my database, so Namesco kindly uploaded it. I can see from the files and their dates that this has been done. Unfortunately I only get a white screen - nothing else. What has gone wrong?
I would add that the backup has a different name to that of the current database in use, does that have anything to do with it?
Hoping someone can help.
