I deleted my wordpress public_html folder and the database that goes with it. There is a backup on the computer I am using and I figured I would learn how to restore the site by using this backup. Yes, it was quite foolish of me to do something like that, but I figured it would be simple the other way around, and from the tutorials I've been watching, it's straightforward. However, the back up that I have from the previous web guy is confusing.
He did a full Cpanel backup. So I figured I would have everything. But in restoring the CPanel backup, it doesn't restore the website, however in this backup is an SQL backup too.
But I deleted the site to the point where WP isn't even installed on my CPanel anymore. When I deleted the folders, it deleted the site, including wordpress. IS the backup enough to ultimately restore everything?
My issue is restoring. I know how to get the files back on the server, which I did a clean wordpress manual install, but it doesn't show when I go to the website... richtechdisplay.com - it goes back to our first domain that we used to have.
