Totally messed up my site :-( (4 posts)

    Is there somewhere or someone I can go to and pay to fix up my mess?

    I followed an online tutorial to move my site out of the subdirectory and into the root directory. Somehow, I screwed things up (although I'm not sure because I followed everything step by step & it was a video tutorial and I had exactly the same screen info showing on mine).

    So I called my hosting provider and they reckon my site is now in a subdirectory of a subdirectory of a subdirectory :-(

    They don't offer WordPress support but are kind of looking at it for me.
    They seem to think the easiest will probably be to reinstall WordPress but I really don't want to start from scratch.

    How can I do this? Or find someone to do it all for me?

    Please help, I'm desperate!

    You might want to backup your site first before you proceed with anything else.

    I really hoped someone would answer this query as I was about to do the same with my files and now I am worried.

    Please provide a url to check you currently "broken site" if you know the steps you took to break it, we can fix it. I strongly urge you both to make backups as mentioned and then read this

    This is the proper way to do it. All other methods... well there are none. :) let me know if this helps and I am waiting to see your URL
