What i did was go into cherokee via ssh. click on vserver and located the wordpress installation directory: /var/lib/cherokee/…..130xxxxxxx . With this number I used phpmyadmin to get into the database and updated the options table to default. this fixed the problem..phew… too much automation gives one the creeps. anyways. the following article will help.
WHERE option_name = ‘template’
OR option_name = ‘stylesheet’
OR option_name = ‘current_theme’;
the above 3 is changed to value = twentyeleven
