Here is a question: Can you upload a saved backup copy to cpanel, then after uploading database, update everything else? For instance; my domain was done in 3.3.2. The new one is 3.4. It seems to make sense to upload the backed-up copy first, then update everything. Am I making sense?
Reason I ask; I uploaded a fresh copy into a fresh installation, then uploaded backup copy of mysql database etc. There is a lot of information missing such as tags and categories etc. It's driving me crazy.
