    Hi All,

    I was trying to move my WP site via FTP to to the root level but something did go wrong.
    After I moved it back to it's original directory all WP functions seem to be gone and the website appears as a unformatted html site:
    http://vpod-bildungspolitik.ch/wp2

    As you can tell I am a beginner ... and did not know to export the site as XML.
    I put quite a lot of work into this - Is there a way to save the site?

    Thanks for your help!
    Michael

  2. You need to put all of your files back in the wp2 directory and follow the instructions here - http://codex.wordpress.org/Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory#Using_a_pre-existing_subdirectory_install

    Or, leave your files in the root directory and go to your database and run a sql statement that will change your url in your database from http://vpod-bildungspolitik.ch/wp2 to http://vpod-bildungspolitik.ch

    I did pull all the files back into the wp2 directory
    But I can't access the admin panel anymore.

  4. I think that you must have change the urls in the settings then?
    If so, you need to go to your phpMyadmin, go to your wp_options table and change them back.

    I then also copied all the files into wp3 and reinstalled WP and the theme.
    But of course all the posts and settings are not linking.

    I did change the wp2 option setting back to wp2 - to no avail

  7. I don't see that reflected in your source code.. You might need to hire someone to fix that for you. If that's an option, go to jobs.wordpress.net

    Yes - I made a hard copy onto my hard drive, before I moved my files to the root.
    After it did not work out I copied it back to wp2. This did not work neighter and I replaced the content of the wp2 directory with my copy - A big mistake I know now.

    Is there any way for me to fix this? This job is a favor for a charity and I don't have a budget to hire someone.

    OK sorry for the confusion.
    You were right, and I was able to fix it.
    Thanks!
