Backup
How can I restore my website? (11 posts)

    Hello everyone,

    Before installing a new theme, I used your plugin to restore my wordpress site if anything goes wrong. The file succesfully uploaded to my ftp folder. After activating the new theme, every link i click says :404 Error File Not Found

    The page you are looking for might have been removed,
    had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.

    Any Ideas ?

    Suggestion - try switching to the Twenty Eleven theme by renaming your current theme's folder inside wp-content/themes and adding "-old" to the end of the folder name using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    That should get you back into your site without having the hassle of restoring a backup.

    Re-upload a fresh, unpacked, copy of the Twenty Eleven folder to wp-content/themes using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    Same for me, after update to the latest version of the plugin, first I couldn't access even the home page, because of the .htaccess file in the root. So disabled the plugin, and now none of my links work...

    Desperately need help!

    And up again!

    For anyone having this problem: Had to add this to the .htaccess file again

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>
    # END WordPress

    Hello My website has been hacked and everything has gone; when I go to the website url I see only 'hacked by hacker'. I have been using this backup and have backups but dont know how to go about actually restoring from the backup file. My WordPress account is not letting me in, and was hacked.

    I dont get it. I make a backup, upload it to the server wp-content/themes and then what?

    Ow yea, you have to rename the file to "something".zip and extract it and Then upload.

    "Ow yea, you have to rename the file to "something".zip and extract it and Then upload."

    This is the only text on this plugin site I've found that addresses the question, "How do I use a backup to recover or recreate my lost web site?"

    Have I missed something? Is there a companion "recover" plugin or something?
