    My hosting site crashed & burned. I lost the database for the blog. I have a not so recent coy of the blog files. Is there a way to get the blog up (I'm assuming without any of posts or responses)with a new my SQL database? Any help would be much appreciated.

    you can shift to another hosting provider and build the blog from the scratch..... but i think u should screw up your hosting company... sue them!.... at least ask them to give the last backup of your site...!

    If you have backup of your database then you can restore website as was by uploading the same version wordpress files and folders.

    Any half way decent host will have back-ups of the sites they host - probably more recent than the one you have. Have you spoken to them to see if they have one? That would certainly be the least painful way of getting things back up and running.

    Unfortunately, they don't have any backup. Their replication program had some bug and erased all the files on the servers that hosted my blog. Besides building from scratch, is their any other way? Thanks for the replys.

    Unless you have backup of database of your own I am afraid to say there no other option.

    Thanks for the insight. I have a new ISP will try & set up a routine to back everything up. Again, thanks for all the help & insight.
