Unlimited karma for the person who can help me.. (9 posts)

    Future helping hand,

    My situation:
    My WordPress-account is connected to my website. Yesterday I have updated my website by deleting the old one and uploading a new one. I used ftp-client and Filezilla, and I maybe deleted some BLOG documents using ftp-client? Not that I know but maybe something like that happened?

    After my update the link to the BLOG on my website didn't work anymore. After that I tried to open the BLOG via the direct link but now I got an error:
    Not Found
    The requested URL /BLOG was not found on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    So my question now is: How do I get my blog working again and get all my hours of work back? (50+ blogs)

    I hope there is some holy spirit out there who can help me, you will receive unlimited karma :-)

    Thanks in advance!

  2. Not sure about the karma part, but do you have a link to your site before and after /BLOG changes? It may make it easier to figure out what you've done and what can fix it.

    Also, don't go nuts on tags --> it makes them less useful. ;)

    Thanks for your reply, I really appreciate it.

    http://www.royalstudents.com/ is the website, in the total right there is a BLOG button. Then you will get redirected to our WordPress.

    I used to be able to login via http://royalstudents.com/BLOG/wp-admin/ but now I get the same error.

    (sorry for the tag overload)

    I can see a login page at: http://www.royalstudents.com/blog/wp-admin

    ie with 'BLOG' as lowercase 'blog' so the link to it on the non-wp site is currently incorrect

    Yes, I'm sorry that was my mistake.

    I am able to login but all my 50+ posts are gone, the only thing I see right now is the 'Welcome this is your first post' message.

    Where did you install WordPress on this domain?

    The host company we use (DreamHost) uses 'one-click installs for WordPress' which means that it automatically created a new folder.

    We created a new folder called Blog inside the 'Public map'. This is a standard procedure for the program but the problem is that when we did this it created a whole new content for the blog and everything was gone..

    Do you have more than 1 copy of WordPress installed?
