When I logon now all of a sudden it says 404 Not Found. When I log into the console via terminal I see that it cannot “stat” wordpress and html. I don’t know what went wrong, and we really need to be able to get in to export our website files.

Are you able to ssh to your droplet? Confirm that Wordpress files are still in /var/www/html. Check the permissions while you’re there as well.
