Hello kwilder,

I'm sorry you're having trouble with your site. When I visited your site, I saw an error related to the configuration file. PHP is sensitive about quotation marks. I added a backslash (\) before the single quote in the text of the public $MetaDesc line to escape the character so that the line doesn't get ended by PHP too early. You should now be able to reach your site and the administrator area.

Please let us know if you have any additional questions or need further assistance.
