Before finding this site I asked for help on the wordpress.org forums. No truly helpful advice found its way to me there. I was about to give up and delete wordpress and just start over. Thanks to you the problems that I couldn't find solutions to were solved. I am so so very thankful for your kindness and your help! A million thank yous!
Adam! Thank you so much for the quick help! It worked like a charm! I am in my dashboard however, another problem has presented itself :( As I previously told I renamed my plugins folder and themes to troubleshoot. Well I undid the renaming and now neither my plugins nor my themes work. My themes are not showing up in my dashboard even after renaming. I have even tried to reinstall but I get: "Installation failed: Could not create directory" for wordpress native themes. Also when I go to install the third party theme that I use I get:
"Unpacking the package…
Installing the theme…
Could not create directory. /home4/rosales/public_html/wp-content/themes/Total/
Theme install failed."
My plugins are all showing up in my dashboard I can activate them but they have no effect on my website at. I don't have a back-up of the folders before I tried to troubleshoot because something went wrong somewhere and my theme and plugins folders are empty in the back-up.
How can I go about fixing this mess I've got myself into?
Thank you in advance and have a great day!
