XF 1.1 Tried to install a plugin (VaultWiki) ,failed, homepage doesn't work now

I tried to install the VaultWiki beta last night (shame on me), the install failed at step 4 ... problem is the homepage for our site no longer works. Functionality works if you hit any sub-url or page or forum listing, but just not the homepage...

Any advice?

Its best to contact the author of VaultWiki, the install failed and its best for him to determine what went wrong and how to fix it.

In case someone else finds this thread looking for a solution:
The OP used another Add-On "AddOn Install & Upgrade" to attempt installing VaultWiki. Due to a bug in AddOn Install & Upgrade at the OP's time of posting, it unzipped VaultWiki files to the wrong locations (including placing a 0-byte index.html file in the forum's home directory).

If an add-on recommends a specific install procedure, it's best to follow those instructions rather than trying to take a shortcut.
