    Hello

    My wordpress admin started working very very slow, so i decided to reinstall it.. But the problem is, that i downloaded the database and whole WP-Content folder, but when i installed new wordpress with old database and old WP-Content, nothing is working... Website is just blank as from the start ? Do anyone know how to fix this ?

    You probably deleted the config.php. Go and edit the wp-congig.php add your database name, database and password.
    If you don't know how to do it just google it.

    Next time you want to re install wordpress manually, delete everything expect for the wp-content and the config.php file

    Make sure you got the database name and password correctly - check each and every letter, that's probably the culprit.

    i can help you on that..always take backup and don't delete the config.php that is the major issue if you are going to reinstall wp.
