I accidentally installed Prosper202 to my main domain (when i think it should have been installed to a sub domain?)

Now i cannot access my website, only my prosper202 login page.

Does anyone know how I can undo this?

    There's no way to undo this unless you have a full backup of your old site. You host might also keep backups. You should check it with them.

    Next time try to get some expert to do it. It'll save your money and time.

    install Proper202 on your hosting account - fiverr

    Go into your MySQL databases and delete them for prosper 202. Then delete all the files for prosper 202 on your site.

        Hi,

        You should be able to go into cPanel or use FTP to get to the root of your primary domain to make fixes/changes.

        While a backup is preferable, it also may depend on what was already installed. I use Prosper202 tracking and the default file is index.php. On that host, I just uploaded an index.html and it loads instead of index.php, but the order can be changed in .htaccess.

        What I am getting at is if the order is the other way, while alterations may have been made to .htaccess, the changes may have not clobbered anything, but laced itself in and the original files are still there. I know that I have recovered from this kind of issue in a Wordpress site since WP is mostly in folders and the names didn't collide. When I use FTP or the file manager in cPanel, I could see that they both were there with the default index.xxx file being the one that loads. When I specifically entered the exact file to load in the address bar, the WP site came right up so I renamed the index.html file and it worked.

        What this is all meaning to say is you have to take a look and see what got clobbered. I'd expect that even using the same MySql DB would operate as the table names are likely not colliding with each other.

        If the index.php file was overwritten, it is a fairly standard file in WP so renaming index.php from Prosper202 and copying that same filename from the same version of WP into its place should work.

        Of course, if it was a min-isite, then the index.php from Prosper202 may have clobbered the mini-site file and a backup is the way to go, but until the actual programs are known and an examination of the actual files on disk is made, the above is more informative than corrective. Knowing what happened, either by familiarity or discovery, is key to find out first in order to know how to proceed.


        Of course, YMMV!

        Best of luck,

        Brett
