Well, proof that I’m not a coding genius lies in the fact that I deleted the directories for the 1.2 version of this site. I wanted to upgrade to 1.5, backed up my directories, and then noticed that I had junk in there from other CMS-based programs (Movable Type and PostNuke). Thought I was just deleting the junk and I ended up deleting the WP directories too.
Oops! Tried to reinstall the backup according to WP’s support, and kept getting errors. So now the past weeks work is GONE.
I think I can recover some of the index rewrites and template changes. Hopefully I’ll be able to find a way to put the content back too.
Chalk one up for the Newbie…
