It truly is better to be lucky than good! I finally had time to sit down and begin to work on the Website. I went into the Earthlink control panel and, with great trepidation, began to explore files and links with ominous titles such as “myssl database.” I quickly became intimidated and backed out, taking great care to not change anything! Frustrated, I returned to the scene of my original problem, the “admin” home page for my WordPress site. That is where the work is done, but I have been locked out for over a week, meaning I was as helpless as the next person when it came to posting, as I’m doing now, or anything else related to site maintenance. I clicked on my log-in, expecting the same dismal error message, but No. The site opened as normal, and here we are. We shall not speak of this again.
