Backup Scheduler
[resolved] how to restore the files to wordpress from Backup scheduler (4 posts)

    Yesterday I upgraded to the latest worpress on two of my sites, both with the same theme and the same plugins, both with different hosts.

    One site upgraded perfectly and the other one which is my main site was the one affected, it broke the theme and I couldn't even go into the theme editor to restore it, it was blank and my dashboard folder was also blank.

    I contacted my server who copied all my date and the database into the root directory, other problem, they did not make a full backup of the database and when I import the database through php admin I see only 20 posts, there should be 60 odd.

    My host advised me to reinstall wordpress which I did. I had also backup scheduler running before this disaster, I copied the files from this plugin into the wp-content under the original name sedlex then installed the plugin.

    I unzipped the backup with winzip and get several files, but I can't see anything with sql extension or anything that makes sense to me, just a bunch of files such as this - BackupScheduler_20120608191507_md3qrjgh32.z04yes

    How do I retrieve these files into my wordpress site, I just don't know where to put them. When I look at the settings in the Backup Scheduler there are two backups with lots of numbers.

    I am feeling desperate, this is 9 months of intense 8 hours a day working on this site basically as far as I can see at the moment gone.

    Wondering if someone can put me on the right track.

    Remove the "yes" extension so that all files are named zip, z01, Z02, etc.

    Put all files in the same folder

    Use winzip to open the backup zip file

    Is that clear ? Does it work ?
