Generally speaking I think myself fairly computer literate. I have maintained several wordpress blogs -- at more than one url. But something ugly happened, and I am not sure what.
I had (note, sadly, the past tense) a blog at http://mejones.net -- it lived there for almost 2yrs. I decided to install a second, less personal, blog (I'm a writer & it was my intention to publish short nonfiction essays and stories on this second blog). So, I used Yahoo's for dummies install of wordpress. No worries, except it asked to be upgraded...I did that...learned all about SQL, or so I thought.
Somehow between yesterday and today...I have irrevocably destroyed my SQL database. I, in frustration, and without much forethought deleted everything on the site. Now, I get a pesky message from the sql admin log in...#2013 - Lost connection to MySQL server during query If I try to create a new user ID I get the following error: The system is either busy or unavailable. Please try again later.
Meanwhile, whether I do the yahoo-for-dummies install, or an FTP upload, I cannot open the wordpress admin panel and I simply get a screen that says: Error: cannot connect to database when I load the blog (now deleted) itself...
HOW do I fix this?
