Earlier this year I set up a subdirectory (/syk) in my VH root domain, jhwm.net, used Fantastico to install Wordpress in it, and created a full site using WP.
Then I registered a new domain, sykgroup.com, and set up an addon domain for it in my Voda cPanel, and copied all the files from /syk into the addon domain folder. Result: the pages I had created began (and until today, continued) appearing at the new domain.
Today when I (foolishly) deleted the /syk folder from my root directory, thinking I didn't need it anymore, the site disappeared from sykgroup.com. At that URL all it now says, "Error establishing a database connection." I'm guessing that might mean I lost the MySQL database for the site when I deleted the /syk folder.
But I'm pretty sure that database was "wrdp3", which I still see in cPanel > MySQL Databases. So now I'm really confused:
- All the files that were in the sykgroup folder before the site disappeared are still there.
- wrdp3 appears NOT to have been deleted
- Wordpress is installed in /sykgroup
So why is the site not appearing at sykgroup.com? THANK YOU.
