need help restoring my forum threads and topics
« on: May 03, 2010, 10:28:39 PM »
hi, i need help restoring my threads and topics my members wrote.. when i updated to 1.1.11 it seemed to go fine untill i used a theme and it crashed...well ...it wouldnt even let me in the admin side of things..so i installed a new database and folder...and was wondering if there was a way to get all that data back, and transfered to the updated site.
I'm using..or forced to use..."my php admin" with sql.. all i see is a delete button,empty button, search button ect....but nothing that will let me change the name of a file (i dont want to delete the file like "membergroups" and have the old file not work..)
should i just risk it?

any guidance is greatly appreciated..
-Lono

Do you have a database back up? If not, you should ask your host if they have any back ups. If not, then your out of luck....
