I am pretty new to wordpress. This may be a stupid question for you guys, but if you can suggest me on solutions, I really appreciate.
I was developing my website(wordpress) locally by using MAMP on my Snowleopard. The other day, I clean installed mountain lion and started my computer from 0. I saved all wordpress files and I transferred MAMP straight, but seems like MAMP was having problem, and I needed to reinstall it. After that, I was able to get MAMP connected, but it required me to start from 0. I can see the theme, but all the contents are gone... I wonder if I can get the contents back somehow. I thought all my info was in wordpress folder, but I am not sure if that is where contents were saved since I couldnt find it. Was it saved under the database?? I did save the MAMP folder before I wipe everything. It should be somewhere in my computer. I just can't seem to locate it or maybe worst case, it has been lost. Pleas help me out on finding solution for this. I have been researching on web long time, but wrong topics kept popping up.
Where MAMP/Wordpress save the content files???
Can I locate them from backup files from previous OS and apply that to my new computer?
Or any way to recover the website I was working on, so I dont need to start from scratch.
