    Please help to restore WordPress website, by 3DWithUs

    I had a healthy and working website/blog. http://www.3dwithus.com
    Recently I bought SSL Certificate (GeoTrust QuickSSL Premium Certificate for 3dwithus.com) on names.co.uk so I could move site from http to https

    Log of our actions:
    Backup WordPress files using FTP
    Exported “All Content” using export tool

    Changed in dashboard/settings/general:
    http://3dwithus.com to https://3dwithus.com
    http://3dwithus.com to https://3dwithus.com

    added to web/wp-config.php
    define(‘FORCE_SSL_ADMIN’, true);

    added to web/.htaccess
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^3dwithus.com [NC,OR]
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www.3dwithus.com [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.3dwithus.com/$1 [L,R=301,NC]

    The site went completely down and I panicked and made a lot of stupid things:

    Trying to restore it back I deleted all WP files via FTP and uploaded them back
    It didn’t help

    Via host provider dashboard “Softaculus Application Installer” Removed WordPress and installed it back

    Now I got to my WordPress dashboard where I activated all plugins and theme and imported XML file using import tool
    I can’t find pages posts images in new dashboard.

    Old cache helps me to keep my website in the state it is now. Some pages still open very well like
    http://3dwithus.com/pla but as soon I will update all goes down, 404 errors come.

    Later I found that for a proper backup I had to back up MySQL tables which I didn’t

    Now MySQL shows message:
    Your PHP MySQL library version mysqlnd 5.0.11-dev – xxxxxxxxx – $Id: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx $ differs from your MySQL server version 5.5.53. This may cause unpredictable behavior.

    Now FTP FileZilla shows the message:
    “Some files are still being edited or need to be uploaded. If you close FileZilla your changes will be lost.” even if I don’t change anything.

    Host provider says they can’t help.

    Please help me with advice what is the best solution in this situation?
