Recreating Comments (4 posts)

    My entire VPS was deleted recently, unfortunately I didn't have a backup of the MySQL database so all my site content was lost.

    However most is pretty well archived in Google Cache and Wayback machine so I'm manually recreating it (suddenly I'm thankful I never managed to update as often as I thought I should).

    Recreating posts is easy enough, but comments are an issue. I can't figure out a way to manually recreate comments on the posts I rebuild. For most posts I don't really mind, but there are a few were the comments added substantially to the post.

  2. Any place you can find a cache of http://your-blog-url/comments/feed/? Aside from that and Google cache, you may be out of luck.

    I can find the comment content in archives... It's just actually putting the content back in the database. There isn't an interface where I as admin can post comments with arbitrary dates and author names etc...

    Ah, gotcha. Sorry that one's a bit out of my reach.
