First webmaster gig and first formal job. Learning FTP accidentally deleted a whole Wordpress site. Almost got fired on my first day.

Hope the company had the proper source control etc. and it was just a matter of redeploy? Or not...? :)

No it didn't. Infrastructure was not a word in that company hahaha. I got lucky because there was another copy of it in an old HDD

Sounds like their screw-up to me! First day on the job and they have you "learning" FTP on the server with important sites on it?

Accident waiting to happen.
