Lost my content (3 posts)

    I created a new wordpress account on 06/18/11. I had several pages and posts over the past 10 days. I really liked my blog so much that my wife asked me to start her wordpress account. So earlier tonight I created a similar site.

    After I finished the "bones" of her site, creating the blank pages and creating the appropriate menu for her site. I went to compare hers to my existing site and it looked just like hers.

    I immediately double checked the URL and hers over wrote all my content. Even tough the URL is correct, the redirection is to her WordPress account. Mine has vanished and I can no longer even log into wordpress with my username or email and PW.

    Any suggestions about recovering the missing pages and posts?

    Would help greatly if we had links to those websites. ANd is this a self-hosted wordpress or on wordpress.com?

    okay, after some investigation, I learned that I was sharing the same database, between the two WordPress accounts which cause the new WP account to overwrite the Old.

    Through my host provider, I was able to roll-back 24 hour and restore my original Database. Which is still in the process as we speak, because coincidentally, they are experiencing issues with MySQL.

    I fully expect to restore all my content and pages. Update to follow.
