A while ago, I had finally figured out how to get my WordPress up on my own. Within a few hours, I was tinkering with the settings and learning what I could do, when I pressed some option, I probably shouldn’t have.
From there, I couldn’t figure how to get back in and toggle that option off and eventually gave up for a bit.
Now, I’m looking at the problem again and decided to just try and reinstall WordPress as I had nothing I had wanted to save.
I followed some instructions to delete the sftp files off of my filezilla, so I went there, clicked on the main/top/root folder and hit delete, expecting everything to be wiped clean, so I could simply drag and drop the WordPress folder.
That didn’t work and I was still left with many extra (?) folders and files and can’t figure out what to do with them.
Then I went and decided to delete my database and create a new one.
I just added a new database on my Nearly Free Speech phpMyAdmin and found that my username is still under Priveleges, so I don’t think I have to do anything there.
I’m not quite sure what steps to take next or if I have to rectify any mistakes I may have made.
*I would also like to mention that my host, Nearly Free Speech, is a host and nothing more. They do not do services and cannot help my case.
