Deleted my MySQL database – what now?
I had a “developer” install a non-working version of a plugin on my blog. He said it was a genuine version but it turned out to be a “nulled” version which didn’t even work.
I then decided to purchase the plugin straight officially but when installing it it turns out that the nulled script had created tables in my database which gave me errors when putting in my license key.
So, in a rush of adrenaline and anger, I deleted my whole database. And now, my wordpress blog doesn’t work at all.
I installed a fresh version of wordpress, and then it worked. The problem is that I haven’t exported my pages…so I really need to use the same installation which is now without a database.
I’ve tried to change the database name in the wp-config.php but it doesn’t work.
What do I do here? Can I create a new database and link that to the backed up version of my old wordpress installation?
Would be extremely thankful for any tips.
EDIT: I did have an exported file of all my pages and posts. What should I do? Re-install a fresh wordpress and then import all my pages again? I would rather not do this as I have to configure everything again.
