In an attempt to map my WordPress URL (whose files were originally located in "mydomain.com/subdirectory" folder) to just mydomain.com, my hosting company suggested to point my domain to the subdirectory where my WordPress was located. This resulted in an error page and I was unable to retrieve my WordPress site and Dashboard.
The second thing my hosting service suggested was to uninstall and re-install WordPress through their service which I did but did not realize it would delete everything that I had worked on, up and until this point.
I do not know how to retrieve my old WordPress files, themes, and plug-ins and am waiting to hear a response.
Any advice on how to retrieve my old WordPress files so that the WordPress I have been working on will show up when I go to mydomain.com?
