Fresh start

I decided to start fresh, and archive the backup of the previous version of wp. I just couldn’t find a solution to the mysql error I was receiving, so I took the easy way out and decided to restart the site. I’m also going to go through all folders and delete anything unnecessary and do a hostee clean up to. Currently I have four hostees, and I know for sure that I am keeping Christina. I just don’t know if I want to continue hosting the other three people that make no effort to contact me, nor do they seem to really update all that much (at least two of them, from what I can remember.) Off to install some plug-ins and get up a temporary theme set up!


  1. Testing out the comments to make sure that everything is a-ok, as well as making sure the recent comments plug in is working correctly. Sweeeet.

  2. Hi,

    I hope you don’t mind my asking, but I seem to be having a bit of the same trouble that you used to have with wordpress. I was wondering if you could tell me how I can start my blog over. I have tried deleting all of my posts and deleting the wordpress folder, but I still keep getting the same problems. At this point I would be happy just being able to wipe wordpress off of my site so that I can start over. For exemple when I deleted wordpress the first time and reinstalled it all of my posts were still there.

    I basically went into cpanel’s fantastico system and deleted wordpress through there. I still made a backup of my database to (try) to load my past posts, but so far I haven’t been able to get to it, so I have no idea if it’ll work yet or not.

    Good luck with trying to get wordpress restarted.

  4. I am going to try that. It looks like it will take a lot of work to reinstall my site and I am not all that programming savvy. I think that the problem is a mySQL problem. I have tried almost everywhere else on the net for help with this problem. It is a bit frustrating. Thanks again for your tip. I will try to give you a followup later to let you know if I was successful or not.

  5. Conclusion. I was unable to get cpanel to download or to contact them. There site seems to be working on a few areas at present. Anyway I went into the mySQL section of my website and deleted the files there related to wordpress and reinstalled wordpress several times before I stumbled on the fact that IE crashed every time I tried to write a post. It turned out that Opera was the culprit of this little problem. Either that or something in WordPress was singularly incompatible with Opera to cause the sidebars and all posts to go hidden and missing upon posting a comment. What I am now using is Firefox, because it works with posting comments on WordPress. That is pobably all I will use Firefox for though 😉

    Thanks for replying though and pointing me towards cpanel. It looks to be a cool program.

  6. addendum

    I think this is the only place that I didn’t give the added explanation to. The version of Opera that I was using was a beta version and more specifically the conflict was caused by a Javascript that Opera was using called multipop. I downloaded it so that Opera could show alt tags on mouseover. Opera doesn’t use mouseover to access alt tags. Oh, well. I did email the creators of multipop and they responded almost immediately that it was indeed a weird bug and they will ask each other about it and possibly have it fixed when the next version comes out.

    Thbbt! Not that you would care about all of that information about my little bug anyway 😉 I just had a really frustrating time with this bug and when I get bugs in my computer I get kinda obsessed till I can find it. With this one I had to work extra hard to find a fix for it and it boggled my mind because no one else was having this problem and no one could help me with it either 🙁 I am amazed that I was even able to come up with the idea that it might be browser related or javascript related, because I am really not all that computer savy.

    I must say that Firefox does look pretty cool though, but I am still undecided about going over to Firefox just yet.

    ooo, my website is really just for my own amusement.! I am still trying to teach myself a bit of code here an there in my free time. I mostly work a lot or go to school ( ), so it is a creative outlet for me 🙂
