Problem with restoring from a backup (5 posts)

    I goofed up in changing the URL for the WordPress site on the General settings page and I'm having a problem in recovering from that. I had a database back up from 24 hours ago.

    I have reinstalled WordPress and created a minimal version using the default twentyeleven theme. I set it up via the Readings settings so that the site shows a static Home Page and blog posts will come under the Blog tab. This is the format for my existing blog.

    I have now via phpMyAdmin attempted to import the back-up file and it looks as though this goes fine. However now in accessing the blog website, all I get is the following message.

    Table 'bwelford_smmbc.wp_fm_settings' doesn't exist

    Via phpMyAdmin I have the following 11 tables in the database:
    wp_commentmeta
    wp_comments
    wp_links
    wp_lockdowns
    wp_login_fails
    wp_options
    wp_postmeta
    wp_posts
    wp_terms
    wp_term_relationships
    wp_term_taxonomy
    wp_usermeta
    wp_users

    The total size is about what it should be given the posts, etc. I have made. I believe the number of tables previously in the blog as it existed before this was 18.

    Can anyone tell me how I can correct this situation? All help is most appreciated.

    Hi,

    That sounds like a custom plugin table as it's not part of the default install that I know of. I think it is for a forms plugin. You should make sure all plugins are set to off. You can do that via phpmyadmin which is described pretty well in this article.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks, D Chad. That sounds exactly what I need. I'll try that out later in my day.

    Cheers.
