Now I have tried to restore things by deleting the index.php file from the root directory and putting the following into the wordpress directory:
* Front to the WordPress application. This file doesn't do anything, but loads
* wp-blog-header.php which does and tells WordPress to load the theme.
* @package WordPress
* Tells WordPress to load the WordPress theme and output it.
* @var bool
/** Loads the WordPress Environment and Template */
but now I get a fatal error
Warning: require(./wordpress/wp-blog-header.php) [function.require]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/content/97/4192497/html/wordpress/index.php on line 17
Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required './wordpress/wp-blog-header.php' (include_path='.:/usr/local/php5/lib/php') in /home/content/97/4192497/html/wordpress/index.php on line 17
Now I'm really dead in the water!!
