Starting from scratch

I have completely screwed up because I ( like a guy) tried to do this without following any directions at all. I have been using PowerCMS for years. I just got the Design Extender and was not aware of the differences. I deleted the admin_cms folder because I was getting errors and wasn't aware that this was the cms folder and not the previous /cms folder. Now the folder will not create again even if I start a new page for the CMS.

What can i do to kick the CMS back into it's initial mode so that it recreates the admin_cms folder?

the Power CMS Files that get copied into your site are located in the users configuration folder.

see the common installation issues page for details on locating the configuration folder:
common_installation_issues.php


from there go to;
Shared/WebAssist/PowerCMS/CMS

you can manually copy the Power CMS Files from this location to your site

To have the wizard re-create the files you just have to delete the /Connections/PowerCMSConnection.php file.

I did that. Now when I am trying to add a page, it HAS created the admin_cms folder, but the page has erased all of the stylesheet elements in my stylesheet called stlyes.css and it has reversed the site logos. The "Powercms" logo is at the top of my regular site pages and the CMS has my companhy logo at the top....

What is going on? And when I got to the install_cms page it goes directly to the CMS page without going through the CMS setup process and I have no username and password to get into the cms
