My website is hosted on Fatcow (unfortunately). I backed up by DB via phpadmin and site files via FTP prior to installing your plugin. My site worked fine after that. Then I went to my file manager on fatcow and changed the .htaccess, wp-config, wp-header, etc files to your recommended permissions. Then my site completely went down with a 404 Forbidden error.
I reinstalled my back ups of the files and the database but that didn’t restore the site. The files are now back up and the site is viewable but Fatcow has been unable to restore the database. Their import/export and backup instructions are so pitiful, it’s likely I did not download the correct database files for my backup copy.
Do you have any suggestions for me? I’d rather not have to rebuild this site.
