  • Hope any of you can help.

    I recently changed computer as the hard drive didnt work. Luckily all files are in a hard disk which is now plugged in on my new pc (mac to be more specific that I guess configuration will be different).

    I built one site in Ampps located in my old pc and I would really need to recover.

    Can anyone confirm if this can be done and how to proceed? I have all the files form the Ampps folder of my old computer.

    Thank you in advance

  • The files are just template files – all of your content is on the AMPPS database- I am not familiar with AMPPS though so I suggest you begin here:

    So you have the website files including images and plugins and themes, this is a good start.
    The bigger part of a website is what is in the database, the pages + posts + menus and widgets etc. The AMPPS package will have used mySQL to manage the database, of course the database itself is stored in files, but these are wired into the mySQL server. Your challenge is to get these files from your failed drive, and get a working database server to access these old database within them, once you have done this you will be able to export the database and import it into your new AMPPS setup. Much of this is outside the scope of WordPress and relies upon AMPPS and mySQL configurations, so it is to their support forums that I direct you for the details.
