    I failed to backup my database before changing servers and am wondering if there is any way to recover the database.

    Thank you for your support!

    That's a question you should ask your former host. We cannot do anything about it. Ask them if they have a backup of your mysql database...

    For others in my predicament, the only way to retrieve blog posts when failing to backup your database is by typing site:mysite.com (using your url) in various search engines and looking at the source code for each post found in the search engines. Fortunately, my blog was listed in the search engines so I was able to find cached pages for most of my old blog posts.

    Of course, the best bet would be to make sure you back up your database so that this will not happen to you....

    Thanks to those who took the time to respond to my post!
