Upgrading / Database Questions (3 posts)

    Hi there,

    I currently have a blog which is running on version 2.8.2, which is only partially active because I failed to backup the databases correctly. The wp_posts.sql file contains errors, and a friend is removing them for me as we speak.

    I was wondering, if I upgrade the website, and choose a new theme and set my new categories etc, once the wp_posts.sql file is restored, will I still be able to use all the old content?

    Thank you.
    Ryan

    I don't know the answer to your question, but I think you would be wise to see if there any other backups around.

    If you are on a web host, they likely take daily or weekly backups, including your databases. If you are on a corporate web server, they certainly would have backups.
