Re-Installing WordPress after being hacked
I did this entire process about 8 months ago and it’s like I never did it.
So assume I’m a complete newbie.
First off do I have to re-create all the mySQL database settings? Since this was done already the first time can I just leave it the way it is?
If not then all my questions below may be redundant…..
I’m told to edit the wp-config.php file but from what I understand wordpress can do this for me. That’s how I did it last time so I would prefer this method.
if you placed the WordPress files in the root directory, you should visit: http://example.com/wp-admin/install.php
If domain name is johnsmith.com then should I enter:
http://johnsmith.com/wp-admin/install.php to access the setup page?
