Need help - cant access admin site
I have a huge problem. I have a website (www.ibcommunity.or) and I played around in Website X5 and uploaded the content to FTP. However, the software froze and after that, I coud not reach either my website nor admin page. I cleared Cache, i tried different browsers, I deleted the files I added in FTP... There should be nothing missing at least i did not delete anything physically. When the software froze, then when the problem started.
Plus, my website says this:
Warning: opendir(C:\domains\ibcommunity.org\wwwroot\admin\/lang) [function.opendir]: failed to open dir: No such file or directory in C:\domains\ibcommunity.org\wwwroot\lib\translation.functions.php on line 88
Warning: closedir(): supplied argument is not a valid Directory resource in C:\domains\ibcommunity.org\wwwroot\lib\translation.functions.php on line 94
Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at C:\domains\ibcommunity.org\wwwroot\lib\translation.functions.php:94) in C:\domains\ibcommunity.org\wwwroot\index.php on line 254
And in my Admin page is says error 404.
I really dont know what to do. I didnt have backed up original files, because when i started saving them on my PC, it crashed. Please help me

The path in the error messages appears to point to your local hard drive which, obviously, isn’t accessible from the public web server where the site is stored. So, you either need to change something in your editor program or edit the paths manually.
And with the error 404 this means that a file is missing or not of the name you typed into the browser’s address bar. What is the URL for the admin page and can you confirm that file is present?

C:\ might not be a problem, but we can't verify that without code. The path looks a lot like what I'd expect to see on an IIS server. On the other hand, it may be simply misconfigured in your file, but that isn't something we can tell you.
Assuming the path is correct, it looks to me that you'll be up the creek. As mentioned the 404 is a missing page, so it didn't upload successfully. If you don't have the files, than you'll be rewriting or downloading them again. You can try contacting your host to see if they have a backup available for which to perform a filesystem restore as well. If you're using a database for your data, than your data should still be intact and not require any type of restoration.
And now you've also learned why backups are *very* important. I manage an entire corporation's backup systems, and whilst people scoff and the importance of that role, the sure come crawling back when something needs to be recovered (ie: many times daily).
