Problems with Vanilla 2.3, now using 2.2 as it works. Please help :).

Greetings everyone,

Hope everyone is great today, i was able to install vanilla 2.3 successfully before but on the root folder like I moved all the files to a new folder (forums) and then I was greeted with a error , something went wrong - i did a complete reupload of all the files, deleted all the tables in my database but it stopped working and showed error like this one - gdn_database connect issue.

So, i installed 2.2 version. I was able to go through the setup page to the dashboard , i was really happy and all even tables are created but now. I can't go to "visit site". I am fine with version 2.2 as long as it's working but i can't access anything other than dashboard - advanced , appearence , getting started etc.

Please help to make it work, i am not able to delete the database as my web host doesn't allow database to be deleted, i am stuck with the database. I can only delete the tables in it.
