So I've been pulling my hair out all morning. I received news that my website was hacked and I went through some resources to help me regain control of my admin account. Now I'm pretty simple when it comes to WordPress. I don't know code and much of the technical jargon is over my head. I use the site as my portfolio.
Anyway, I used FileZilla to delete the file directories as instructed. Afterward, I uploaded the newest version of WordPress to FileZilla and proceeded to do the same with my theme I purchased sometime last year. Nothing changed. Now my website is completely gone. I still have my portfolio images saved on my external and I have my videos on my YouTube channel. Plus I went ahead and copied all of my blog posts. Do I need to start from scratch? Is there anyway I can keep using my domain name via WordPress?
If ANYONE has any suggestions they would be greatly appreciated.
