    Accidently Installed Wordpress

    So I am an idiot because I accidently installed Wordpress and my original site which was created by someone else in Adobe Muse went away. I researched how to uninstall Wordpress to get my site back working the way it was and I deleted all the files and database. But, I did not read to keep the wp-config.php file and this was deleted. Now I get the 404 error when trying to view my website but in cPanel all the original website stuff seems to be there. Does anyone have suggestions on what I am missing? Any help is appreciated.

    Delete the .htaccess file if you haven't already.

    I delete the .htaccess file but it keeps showing back up. I use GoDaddy hosting.

    Assuming you have the original site files backed up somewhere.

    1) Delete the site in cPanel and add it back in (do any backups you may need to first).
    2) Upload the old site.

    This normally isn't a good idea, but I'm also assuming that since it's Adobe Muse it's a static site with no database.
