    I have just has a server fail. I need to get all my blogs back online. My Problem is my disaster recovery position is not the best!

    I have a back-up of the databases, however I do not have a back-up of the wordpress files.

    I tried downloading the latest and changing the config files to suit, and then going to the blog this gives a blank page, I then tried to go to the admin page this told me to upgrade the DB whcih i did. I can now get into the admin page and see all the posts etc there but still can not see the blog.

    The problem is I do not know what version of WP each of the blogs were.

    Anyone any advice as to how to move forward, I still have the backups so can go back to the origional non-upgraded DB if required.

    Thanks

    Happy new Year to all!
