Hi,

Yesterday I installed Magneto via installatron, but I put the wrong domain in and it took over my home page (so all i could see on the home page was the magneto store.

I decided to unistall it, again using the option within installatron, but this has now removed the entire site which now looks like this:

/http://screencast.com/t/IJaCScIwc

Can anyone help me with what I do next, I can't access the site, I can't get into the backend, its in a real mess!

Assuming it was a Joomla site by the directory names, and assuming it was up to date with the latest Joomla files, you could try downloading the full zip of Joomla from joomla.org and unpacking it to your desktop. And then grab the index.php from that and upload to your server.

It looks like the removal removed the index.php not sure what else got hit, but try just the index.php first and see if that gets the site backup proper.

Just to add, if you've got a current backup of the site, you could upload the files for it from the backup.
