Support » Fixing WordPress » WP-SETTINGS OVERWRITTEN

  • hi,

    i´m using wordpress for my site (www.stefanjoch.at)

    I´ve uploaded all my content but the pages were all overwritten at the same place.

    So i´ve done something really stupid i guess and overwrote my WP-SETTINGS.PHP file with a new one.

    Everything has gone – i even can´t login to the admin area?!!

    Would be awesome if someone can help me!

    Thank you,
    Stefan

    So, you had WordPress installed and working, then you uploaded all of the WordPress files again, replacing your current files?

    yeah, it worked for three years – last update was in january i think.

    no i´ve not uploaded everything- only in httdocs a few files – i know thats stupid – but i was so angry cause all posts were overwritten showed, so i thought i overwright a few setting files.

    page.php index.php style… etc files were overwritten in the theme folder, than i ve started to replace files in httdocs such as wp-settings…then nothing worked…

    thanks for your answer – really appreciated!

    Can you describe “then nothing worked” in more detail?

    Replacing wp-settings.php with another one from a WordPress zip file shouldn’t cause your site to stop working, unless you replaced it with a newer version and didn’t replace all the rest of the files needed when you do an upgrade.

    then nohting worked means that only a white screen was displaye – no chance to get to the log-in area – even the browser title is gone….

    @mrmist
    all the same version – i´ve done a backup of the site two months ago and didnt update it till now.

    HELL YEAH!!!

    i´ve tryed to find all wordpress files on my comp and replaced the wp-settings with one ive found – its here again!!!!

    Damn, THANK YOU SO MUCH for your help!!!!!!!!

    The only thing still left is the pages problem as you can see (if you want)

    Whoa 0_0

    Is it supposed to be that . . . out of place?

    I’m sure I see a problem, but I’m not entirely sure what I’m supposed to be seeing either. Can you describe “the pages problem” in more detail?

    on the left hand side – there are two links (below Stefan Joch (ZWP!)…) – one is standing above instead of like a listed object…

    You know what i mean? 🙂
