Totally new to WP. Very happy with how easy it was to get a site up and running for a rookie like me! But I screwed up. I had a site running and then went and copied the entire contents of the running site to a new location (a new file location on the same server). No links worked after that. So I deleted the file and tried to return to the original wordpress install. No luck either.
I have edited the wp-options file using phpmyadmin to point to the correct site (after remedying the "infinite loop" problem of having the site and home point to the same location). But I have lost access to the wp-admin on the site and previous image files for example don't show up. Somebody with Jedi power please rescue me from myself.
