Lost Files, Please Help! (4 posts)

    I recently made a wordpress site to replace an existing site (not wordpress). When trying to move the files I ran into some problems and contacted the host server to try to troubleshoot and they deleted and reinstalled wordpress. Now all of my posts / pages are gone. Is there any way to get this back? I still have the php and css files that I edited, also the images. The tech support at the host server didn't seem to know what they were doing and pretty much told me I was on my own.

    Please help, Thanks!

    Did you make a backup copy of your database? Did your hosts? Is the old database still there and populated?

    No, I thought I had a backup of the database, but it was just the php files. Does wordpress back anything up? There is no database showing up currently,just the edited php files.

    Does wordpress back anything up?
