[resolved] Password reset issues and lost database links (3 posts)

    I was fiddling around with things on my site this weekend and tried to move it to a new URL using a tool in the "tools" sidebar. I managed to lose my password and a reset isn't working. I tried the emergency.php reset but I still can't access my data.

    Instead, I've been playing around inside my file manager through my hosting. I managed to reset the style sheet that was lost in whatever I did, but all of the content is missing. I have a backup of my sqldatabase, but I don't know how to relink it to my site through outside sources, as I can't access my dashboard.

    website: newbienewsie.com/blog (I was trying to change it to just newbienewsie.com)

    theme: portfolio-press

    That worked to get me back into my site, thank you.

    Now, however, none of my pages are working. Each one redirects to the twentyten default page, rather than the content i originally had. I tried editing the shortlink and deleting the page, but I think all pages, new or old, are redirecting to the default.
