    Jus started to make a new site using Wordpress and was messing about with the CSS files in the theme to fix something but now the site won't load and I can't make any changes since Wordpress won't work now either.

    Tried to install WP again using Hostgator's quick install but it's saying that all the files exist already.

    I don't care if I have to start again since its only a new site, can someone tell me what I need to do ?

    Thanks

    Would it work if I used FileZilla to delete WP ?

    I'm just worried that I mess around with my money sites by accident :/ sine I've around 5 sites hosted with Hostgator

    yes. it works. you can also use cpanal file manager to delete all the files easily (in your site's folder)..

    if you were editing a addon theme just ftp into your hosting and remove the theme folder. do the same if you were editing an addon. when you remove the theme wp will revert back to the stock theme and you can start over.
    if you need to reinstall wp edit the username and password in your wp-config.php file. one of these steps will fix it for you
    :)

    Nah I had to uninstall it which was simple - thanks to Hostgator.

    Then I installed it again.
