[resolved] Backup before deleting users!!! (2 posts)

    Today I deleted the 'Admin' user from a recently built site and lost all the pages created by that user. The system asked which user to attribute posts and pages to and then just went ahead and deleted them!

    This was with WP 3.3.1, luckily I have a daily backup, so it should be restored later today.

    It's been restored (siteground support is quick), and I read on the forums that it's actually better to just rename the admin user from the database instead of deleting it.
