My site was hacked and taken completely offline. With some recently backed-up files, I was able to get a somewhat older version of the site back online, but I cannot access the WordPress dashboard. This is probably due to having used the Better WP Security plugin to hide the backend.
Can WordPress be installed over itself? In other words, will the installer allow me to write over the existing files on the server?
Or, is there a a better (and maybe easier) way to bring the site back up to date?
Many thanks for any input.
