So… in a weak and not so mindful moment I grabbed JetPack plugin, although I have no specific use for it (as fas as I know)
*is there a way to check that a plugin is not being used before deleting it?
*Jetpack also says it has a backup system for theme, plugins, and content. How does that compare to the installer.php route which still is unknown/feels mysterious to me?
*Akismet plugin is installed (did I do that?) But I haven’t activated it fully yet. Is that the best thing to use for security?
Apols for adding many topics in this thread.December 12, 2017 at 11:47 pm in reply to: lift WP folder up with all content to homepage level #448323
OK, thanks. In the meantime the domain host folks did the job for me, which was nice, but I’ll practice with the installer.php route as it seems like a good way to produce then upload new versions of a site.December 12, 2017 at 3:32 am in reply to: lift WP folder up with all content to homepage level #447600
I should be fired, I’ve made a messs of things. My domain host support said to simply empty my public_html folder, then pull everything out of my WP folder and move it up to public_html. I did that and I could see the WP content was there (sort of) but the theme was working. BoooHoo. So I’ve tried to go back, leaving the simple page on beerlab.se, and tried to move everything back to WP folder, but not I can’t publish that, I don’t know how to logon to WP to get back to dashboard. Its a rotten mess.
Do you think I should try to use the installer.php file instead? I.e. empty the public_html folder, put the installer there- not sure about the zip file though….December 11, 2017 at 10:39 pm in reply to: lift WP folder up with all content to homepage level #447451
Ok, thanks. I’ve done that now, so I have an installer.php on my local drive. I still dn’t see how I would unpack that to beerlab.se. Something with the index page? But what?
hehehe well that was easy! Thanks Tom!
