My website has had a few problems over the last week, including leftover things from an old theme I was using. My friend suggested a complete new install as it is installing a theme over another. He had actually done this for me, through FTP, backed up my site and then made a new install so there was nothing hanging around clogging it up.
The theme he put in wasn't working for me, so now he suggests I need to do that whole process again, backing up and then uploading all my content. My site has already been down a week and I really need to get it sorted. This new theme is not even working properly now as there seems to be problems left behind from the old one. (Duplicate galleries and such)
Does anyone have any advice as to how to go about this as he's quite busy and I can't wait another few days before he would get a chance to start helping me. I need it up and running as soon as possible.
Do I really need to "start from scratch" and what does that even involve?
Thanks in advance,
