    Can we see the site using the Twenty Eleven theme with all plugins deactivated?

    Here you go
    http://www.stevens.edu/calstudentblogs/

    All plugins deactivated and Twenty Eleven live.

    Sorry – you’ve reverted to the other theme again.

    there – it’s back to twenty eleven… sorry had to keep it switched since it’s a live site. it’s on 2011 now.

    Try resetting your custom permalinks back to the default setting via Settings -> Permalinks. If this works, then review Using_Permalinks before setting a custom permalink structure back up again.

    After resetting it back to default, it displays this when i try to post a comment:

    The requested URL /calstudentblogs/wp-comments-post.php was not found on this server.

    Not Found

    The requested URL /calstudentblogs/wp-comments-post.php was not found on this server.

    Apache/2.2.9 (Debian) mod_ssl/2.2.9 OpenSSL/0.9.8g mod_perl/2.0.4 Perl/v5.10.0 Server at http://www.stevens.edu Port 80

    is this a server problem then?

    Could be a problem with missing files. Try re-uploading all files & folders – except the wp-content folder – from a fresh download of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.

    ok i’ve done as you say, when i visit the URL i’m getting this

    There doesn’t seem to be a wp-config.php file. I need this before we can get started.

    Need more help? We got it.

    You can create a wp-config.php file through a web interface, but this doesn’t work for all server setups. The safest way is to manually create the file.

    i presume this means i should get that file, and then perhaps all my problems will be solved? 🙂

    any idea how to create a wp-config file, on that point? because i do not know!

    Did you delete all of the files on the root folder? wp-config.php isn’t in the WordPress download, so it shouldn’t be deleted. it’s specific to your site and is created during the install process. You can re-create it using a copy of the wp-config-sample.php file but you will need to obtain your database hostname, name, your database username and its associated password.

    GREAT NEWS!!!
    it’s all fixed and comments work. THANK YOU so much. 😀 Your help has been fantastic!!!
