It seems like I'm going to have to start from scratch. My issues are just too deep. So, my question at this point is, I have backed up my site using the WP data base. I plan to uninstall the current instant of WP and install a new instant of it.
Once that's done, I'd like to import the files/website that were saved in the data base into the new fresh WP. The question is, when I saved the old WP site with the problems to the data base, did I save/back up the problems as well only to have them carry over onto the new install of WP?
