When I click on themes in my dashboards, I get sent to my current themes 404 error page. It is like the themes section is gon. Can I "remove" then re-install?

Hello ShopWham,

Thank you for your question. If you just want to start over, you can uninstall Wordpress using Softaculous. Then just perform a normal Wordpress installation from Softaculous.

If you want to reinstall Wordpress, but try and keep your existing site, you can delete Wordpress Softaculous via Softaculous, and uncheck Remove database in Step 5. Then install Wordpress manually and connect to the existing database.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,
