    I had a mishab with a file, but was able to physically back-up most of my wordpress directory.

    Which files do i need to upload back to my site that contain stuff like: Posted News and Pages? and possibly sidebar settings/widget stuff. (i had some custom text in there that i would rather like to have back)

    Database Description details the standard WordPress tables.

    Recommend you get a backup plugin and you can't go wrong--back up ALL your tables, then restore all your tables.

    See:

    I cant make a backup. the files were deleted. the only backup i had was of a few hours prior to the deletion.

    im on a fresh install, i was able to just upload my theme from my backed up theme files, but now im wondering which .php files or w/e contain my posts and pages.

    hmmm, i been searching :-/

    /// .. im checking out these plugins as you suggested.

    Sorry for not explaining correctly. Your posts, pages, links, categories, tags, and comments are kept in a MySQL database. See Database Description for details on each table.

    If you don't have a database backup then there is not much you can do but start over.

    Your theme is comprised of PHP script files and typically those are found in the wp-content/themes/yourtheme folder.

    So, if I backup the database I will be saving all page content? Is this only the text from the pages, or will graphics be backed-up also??

    Thank you!
