lost blog

    First, I did read the sticky, but I am not sure who hosts my blog…wordpress.com, or wordpress.org. So perhaps someone can help me or tell me to repost in the appropriate forum. About two weeks ago, I downloaded my entire website: http://www.communichi.org into Dreamweaver. Previously, I had been using some freeware web editing software that I wasn’t that happy with. However, as I was downloading, I noticed that inside the images subfolder of the WordPress blog, there were about 300 junk files which seemed the work of some sort of spam/hacker attack. Actually, it looked like they had been there since last October, without causing any damage, but I decided I wanted to get rid of them.

    And here, I made a fatal error, I deleted the files directly from the server, not my local copy of the website, and as a result, my blog crashed. The webserver (AN hosting), told me that they still have the database, which contains the 125 or so blog posts I’ve written over the past 2.5 years, but they are inaccessible because somehow the wp-config.php file was somehow damaged. They said they rebuilt this file based on the username/password info they had, but it still didn’t work. The web designer (I am not one), also tried to rebuild it without success. He said, probably there is a fix, but he doesn’t have the time. So now I am turning to the virtual universe for help to restore the thousands of hours of writing I did over the past years. I’m hoping someone can please work on this with me.





    You did not specify a blog address or reason for posting when you created this topic.

    This support forum is for WordPress.com hosted blogs only. If you have a self-hosted WordPress blog you need to seek help at the WordPress.org forums, not here.

    If you don’t understand the difference, you may find this information helpful.



    Sorry you have a WordPress.org blog which you will need to acquire support over at » http://wordpress.org/support/


    Yes, you need to post your question over at http://wordpress.ORG/support/ which is where self-hosted blogs are supported.
